“Happy marriages begin when we marry the ones we love, and they blossom when we love the ones we marry.” – Tom Mullen. One of the goals for dating partners is to make a public life-long commitment to each other. This is what we call “marriage,” in which two people vow to be perpetual partners in a personal relationship in front of a public audience. Unless there are prenuptial agreements, it is a formal union that is both a legal and social contract that binds the parties together and unifies them holistically (financial, emotional, physical, social, etc.). There is more to marriage planning than meets the eye; it usually takes 1 to 2 years for couples to prepare for matrimony; one of the most important things to know is what are the most popular months to get married in in order to know the peak season for marriage.

Marriage may seem enticing and romantic, but it is actually more complicated than simply walking down the aisle. No one wants to ruin this special day, so the act of marriage requires planning and foresight. Planning a wedding at the right time is an important part of the process; you need to know when the majority of brides and grooms’ weddings seasons so that different services for the event are guaranteed available. You’ll also want to know which seasons and times of year have the best weather for your photos and overall success of the event.
Why is it Important to Know the ‘Marriage Season’?
Loving does not have a time limit; anyone can marry at any time and from any location. However, knowing when the marriage season is is useful information for couples because it allows them to choose the best date for their wedding. Despite pressure from family and friends, do not rush this step because it will provide you with these benefits.
1. The Best Climate / Season
“Married in a Hurricane” If you recognise Pepa and Felix from the movie Encanto, you have an idea of what it’s like to get married in the middle of a hurricane; despite Pepa’s ability to control the weather, she didn’t like it. Most couples nowadays prefer to marry in a warm and humid climate. Fortunately, we have a tropical climate here in the Philippines. Having the best weather for your wedding can provide you with the option of having an outdoor wedding, which is one of the current trends. Because this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, we should remember it with a summer blaze on our skins, safe from a downpour dark sky.
2. Assurance for Service Availability
Because you have chosen to marry during a peak season for weddings, you can be certain that the services you require for the most important day of your life will be available. It could be the best photographer in town or the best chefs. Just remember to plan ahead of time.
On the other hand, there are also advantages for couples who opt to get married in a ‘off-season’ for marriages as they can enjoy these benefits:
3. Reduced Demands
As basic economics teaches us, the lower the demand, the lower the price. Prices for wedding services such as hotel rentals are reduced during the off-season because there are fewer people seeking these services. Furthermore, because it is not considered peak season, businesses will experience slower periods, making it a good decision to lower prices. As a result, the savings may be around 20-30% less, which can be used for other important things for the couple, the saved money could be allocated for the honeymoon expenses.
4. Increased Attendance
Attending a jampack load of weddings can be expensive for an invited guest. There are numerous expenses, such as gifts, travel expenses, suit rental, and so on. Additionally, wedding fatigue may be experienced. Now, if you want to ensure that the majority of the people you’ve invited will attend your wedding, schedule it during the off-season.
What are the Most Popular Months to Get Married in the Philippines?
According to Statista data, the months of January, February, and December had the highest aggregate number of registered marriages in the Philippines in 2020. Furthermore, June is one of the months that has kept up with these three months because we have dealt with western traditions of getting married in this month despite the fact that it is the beginning of the rainy season in the Philippines.
The first month on this list is the busiest for weddings. June is the month of the Roman goddess Juno (for Greek Mythology, Hera is celebrated every June), which is associated with fertility and marriage. In addition, it is summer in the western hemisphere. In the Philippines, children are still on summer vacation, so parents have more time to attend such events. Furthermore, because the fiscal year begins in July, the couple will be classified as “with spouse” for the remainder of the year, which may result in lower tax rates. However, it is a month when it is likely to rain, and people’s formal attire may become drenched. However, if you are an optimist, rain could mean good fortune.
For the next top marriage season in the Philippines, it is named after the Roman god Janus, who represents the god of beginnings, time, or doors to the new year. As a couple, it could represent the beginning of your married life. The Philippines is experiencing a cold season as a result of the northeast monsoon, also known as the ‘hanging amihan.’ This is an ideal temperature for layering clothing for fashion. The difficulty in scheduling your wedding for this month is that there were a lot of expenses during the Christmas break, and there are a lot of events such as family reunions during this time, so it is recommended that you reserve the venue and services ahead of time
The month of love, where we celebrate Valentine’s Day, is the another most popular month to get married in. The Philippines is one of the countries where Valentine’s Day is commercialized. It is a month of transition from a cold to a hot climate, so it still provides the best temperature to wear unique fashion marriage trends.
Finally, the month that brings the year to a close is a popular time for marriage. This is the month that keeps Filipinos alive; there are various Christmas decorations and lights all over town, setting the mood for a jolly holiday with a cool breeze. As a result, it provides a wide range of themes for couples while also having a cool climate ideal for wearing suits and dresses. Furthermore, this is the month when OFW return to the country and people return to their provinces. Unfortunately, this is also a busy month for traffic and holiday plans, which can ruin your day if not properly planned.
Older couples who have married can attest that these months are the best options because they themselves have captured an unforgettable moment of their vows. So, always remember to plan ahead and live a happily and ever after.
