Chicago Weddings: Weather Guide

Choosing your Chicago wedding date carefully!

Chicago has very cold winters and very hot summers. When planning your Chicago wedding, choose your wedding date carefully and be prepared to plan around the weather.

Winter: Snow only falls a handful of times a year in Chicago, so winter weddings are rarely thwarted by heavy snowfall. However, be aware that temperatures can drop below zero in the heart of wintertime. When planning a winter wedding, avoid outdoor locations and speak to your vendors about cold weather issues.

Spring:
Chicago springs are mild and a bit chilly. Don’t fret about the wind factor. The nickname "Windy City" may be well-known, but Chicago isn’t significantly windier than some other major cities. Still, plan for staying indoors unless your wedding will take place in late spring.

Summer: Rain is common in Chicago in the summer. While temperatures can climb into the mid-90s during the day, they generally drop to comfortable temperatures in the evenings. Plan for summer Chicago weddings in the evening if your event takes place outdoors or partially outdoors.

Autumn:
Chicago is gorgeous in the fall. As a result, September is popular month to get married in Chicago. Book well ahead of time when planning a fall wedding, and expect higher prices. If you’re planning an outdoors wedding, shoot for early fall.
