Best Times to Plan a Destination Wedding
by / Tuesday, 28 March 2017 / Published in Blog, Weddings

If you’re planning a destination wedding in the Caribbean, the good news is that there’s really no bad time to do it. Every season offers its own perks, so you can pick the time of year that works best for your schedule and top priorities. Consider the key features of these distinctive seasons in St. Lucia.

December to April

The months between December and April offer the best weather in St. Lucia. Rainfall is at its lowest during this time. While there’s still about 109 mm of rainfall in December, this falls off dramatically to just 71 mm in January and less than 60 mm from February through April. You’ll enjoy an average high of 29 to 30 degrees Celsius, and average lows around 23 to 24 degrees, keeping everyone comfortable.

The downside is that everyone wants to enjoy this time of year. Prices are higher, and the crowds are heavier, so your private wedding may not be as intimate as you’d like.

May and June

May and June are typically considered the best months for a visit to the Caribbean. This is a nice shoulder season when you and your wedding guests can find affordable rooms and airfare. Temperatures rise moderately to an average high of 31 and low of 25, and it gets moderately wetter with about 71 mm of rainfall in May and 99 mm in June, but you haven’t hit the truly rainy season yet.

July through November

If you plan your Caribbean wedding between July and November, consider the time of day carefully. This is the rainy season, and afternoon showers are common. Daily temperatures are the same as what you’ll find in May and June, with an average high of 31 and an average low of 25.

The real appeal of this season is the pricing. This is the least popular time to visit St. Lucia because of the threat of potential hurricanes, so you’ll find everything at its lowest rate. As an added perk, June and July are the time for the St. Lucia Carnival, adding a little extra excitement to your honeymoon.
