Fall weddings are probably the most popular, years ago it was June weddings. In this day and age, fall weddings are actually more popular than any other time of the year, therefore most places charge the most money in the fall. One can use foliage in the fall, which is extraordinarily beautiful. If you put light on green, yellow, orange, red leaves you don't even need flowers, albeit there are beautiful fall flowers, but foliage itself and trees can make an absolutely beautiful wedding, and if you like a park look, if you like leaves, if you like fall colors its a really beautiful time of year to make a wedding.
