Most and Least Popular Months For Australian Couples To Book Their Weddings



If you plan to get married in the next two years, there are certain peak periods as well as low-season times to book your wedding.

My Wedding Decor surveyed 487 couples getting married between 1 September 2017 and 30 June 2019 to find out the most popular wedding dates.

Most and least popular seasons to marry
Three in 10 (31.1%) are getting married in spring between 1 September-30 November 2017 closely followed by Australian autumn weddings between 1 March-31 May 2018 (28.7%).

Summer is less popular than you might think with 17.8% marrying between 1 December 2017 and 28 February 2018 (18.6%).

Winter remains the least likely to marry with only 5.9% planning their wedding between 1 June-31 August 2018.

The majority of couples (78.4%) are getting married in the next nine months to 31 May 2018.

Of the entire two-year survey period however, only 10.6% are getting married in spring between 1 September-30 November 2018.

The most popular wedding date for 2018
A whopping 6.2% of the 487 couples surveyed are getting married on Saturday 17 March 2018.

The top seven wedding dates
The most popular wedding dates over the entire 21 months are as follows:
* Saturday 16 September 2017 (1.6%)
