Planning a wedding? Consult the Almanac's wedding weather tools, tips, and advice.
If you are a bachelor—oh, haste then and be married, for he who hath no children or wife doth not know what love means.
–The 1805 Old Farmer's Almanac
Trying to decide when to tie the knot? Go back in time and figure out "typical" weather for a date/location with our Weather History tool. It's free, but you can only look up one date at a time. If you want to look at multiple years and get an "average" over time, purchase our Customized Weather History Search.
Another resource is the Almanac's famous long-range weather forecasts. Find 12 months of forecasts in the printed edition of The Old Farmer's Almanac. As a courtesy, we also show the free two-month long-range forecasts here on Almanac.com. Note the chart that shows you average monthly temperatures and precipitation for the full year. Notice which months are the wettest and which are the driest.
