Choosing the Best Time To Get Married in Central Park

Choosing the date and time for your Central Park wedding ceremony is an important part of the wedding planning process. You have to consider things such as the weather conditions, pricing, hotel accommodations if you are traveling from out of town, and which months will be easiest for you and your guests to travel. In this article, we’ll help you narrow down your selection by providing you with the highlights of what makes each season unique. 

Central Park Wedding Planning- Springtime 

Spring in Central Park might be one of the most beautiful times of the year. The groves are known to blossom when springtime comes around. May is a great month to get married because you're getting closer to the summertime. You and your guests can enjoy the breeze. If you are planning on having a springtime wedding, we encourage you to book your date as early as possible. May is a kickoff to peak wedding season so it can be quite chaotic. 

Central Park Wedding Planning- Summertime

For some, June is the best time to plan an iconic wedding ceremony in Central Park. But do you know why? According to Roman Mythology, June is the month of Juno, the goddess of marriage. June is the beginning of the summer months and offers some better weather conditions. Temperatures may rise though, so you’d have to take the summer heat into consideration when planning your wedding. Having a summer wedding has its perks, there is usually more flexibility for your guests due to relaxed work schedules and summer break for students.  

Central Park Wedding Planning- Fall 

The Fall is another popular time to have a Central Park wedding ceremony due to the breathtaking weather and scenery. Planning your iconic wedding in Central Park during the Fall months can be done with many different wedding themes. You’ll be surrounded by the sight of the autumn colors that blend perfectly with the love that is in the air. If you aren’t too keen on hot weather, the end of summer and the beginning of fall is a perfect time to have your wedding. It brings a cool fall breeze with a bit of the summertime heat so you and your guests can maneuver blissfully through your breathtakingly beautiful wedding ceremony. The fall also comes with many epic events in the New York City area like Fashion Week, which takes over Bryant Park.

Our Story

After spending more than two decades in the event industry creating some of the most illustrious Happenings of our time, world-class event designer, Tom Noel, wanted to provide his skills to a broader public. Based in Manhattan, Tom Noel would often take a walk through Central Park. In 2008, during one of these walks, he stopped to sit at one of his favorite spots in the Park, the Bethesda Fountain. It was here that he realized that the intrinsic beauty that surrounds us was not being harnessed fully. He also realized that there was not a single business that provided the exclusiveness of a top event design house while scaling the planning and production process to meet the pricing needs of the average consumer. Determined to change this, Happenings™ was born.  

With years of research and outstanding results, Tom Noel's innovative system and new business model are reshaping the event design industry. Happenings™ eliminates the chaos of the traditional event planning process and puts you in charge. You are given insider access to the planning process, helping you create a truly stunning event that is affordable. We aim to prove that precious, unforgettable moments should not and will not be restricted by means but enhanced through creativity. However, we know how hectic things get on the day of an event. Therefore, we ensure that every Happening has an in-person location manager on the day to help everything along.
