You said вЂњyes,вЂќ posted a tear-drenched show-off-the-ring selfie on Instagram, and are now wishing maybe you hadn't. It's not the whole "I do" situation you regret (one hopes), but rather the remorse you have every time you get the inevitable "WHEN will you wed?" question. Perhaps you always thought you'd be a summer bride, but the timing of your engagement didn't work out optimally for a June wedding. Or maybe your venue is booked until the dead of winter, and you're now stuck with an either/or situation, deciding between your dream setting and your dream dress (which is certainly not designed for freezing temps). Ideally, what follows will help you uncover the best season to get married.
If you're prone to nervous breakdowns around bridal decisions-be forewarned-Astrologist Ambi Statham's zodiac-based advice may throw a wrench in your current plan. As a general rule, she suggests that it's вЂњniceвЂќ for signs to marry in their zodiac month. вЂњThis is when the cosmic spotlight is shining firmly on them with the Sun blazing in their section of the zodiac."
However, there's a catch. вЂњWe astrologers do not advise marrying during Venus, Mars, or Mercury retrogrades, as these are the specific retrogrades which can most adversely impact marriage and weddings.вЂќ But don't despair, Statham is here with specific-to-your-sign advice to help you decide when to walk down the aisle. Be sure to scope out your horoscope prior to sending out those save-the-dates.
Fire: Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius
вЂњGenerally speaking, a fire sign will be seeking a powerful, fiery energy around them during their nuptials, so summer tends to be the best time for these signs to wed,вЂќ she says. вЂњThe sun is shining and the temperatures are warm, which suits their sunny and fiery dispositions.вЂќ
Aries: вЂњThis sign is best suited to the start of summer, so June-perhaps a summer solstice wedding on the longest day of the year-would suit this dynamic sign,вЂќ Statham says.
Leo: вЂњLucky Leo can combine the summer and Leo season and wed later in the summer, from late July through late August,вЂќ Statham says. вЂњWhatever Leo does is sure to be a fun party, as this sign loves entertaining.вЂќ
Sagittarius: вЂњSagittarius can opt for any time during the summer months and enjoy the warmth of the fiery sun gracing their nuptials; however, being the zodiac traveler, they may also choose to wed during the winter so they can get away to an exotic location where temperatures are warm,вЂќ Statham says.
Earth: Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn
вЂњSpring and fall are the best times for these signs to wed,вЂќ she advises. вЂњAny type of outdoor wedding with Mother Nature as a backdrop is the perfect setting for the earth signs.вЂќ
Taurus: вЂњTaurus may prefer spring, which is nearer to their birthday month,вЂќ she says.
Virgo and Capricorn: вЂњThese signs could be better suited to autumn, and the later in autumn the better for Capricorn,вЂќ Statham suggests. вЂњAs these signs tend to seek grounding and balance, both the spring and fall equinoxes-which mark equal parts day and night-would both work well for them.вЂќ
Air: Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius
вЂњThese sociable signs can enjoy a wedding at any time of the year, provided it's full of socializing,вЂќ Statham says.
Gemini: вЂњGeminis may be drawn to a destination setting wherein they can maximize socializing and chatting with their guests over a few different events around their wedding week or weekend,вЂќ she suggests.
Libra: вЂњLibra is likely to opt for something more classic and glamorous, and an early fall wedding would probably suit this sign best,вЂќ Statham says.
Aquarius: вЂњAs the zodiac's most unpredictable sign, whatever Aquarius does is likely to have an unusual element to it-perhaps they drag their wedding guests on an eco-adventure wedding, for example.вЂќ No rules, she says, really apply to this sign (other than doing it their way).
Water: Pisces, Cancer, and Scorpio
вЂњWater is the theme for these signs whatever the season they choose,вЂќ Statham says.
Cancer: вЂњCancer is likely to feel most at home during the summer, and a beachside wedding with their nearest and dearest would most suit this sign,вЂќ she says.
Pisces: вЂњPisces will enjoy a wedding at any time of the year provided it is by a natural body of water, either the ocean, a lake, or a river,вЂќ Statham says. вЂњHowever, marrying during their season, towards the end of winter, would suit Pisces best.вЂќ
Scorpio: вЂњSerious Scorpio would best suit a winter solstice wedding on the darkest day of the year,вЂќ she advises. вЂњThink a winter wedding at sunset by a beautiful lake. This private sign may also enjoy a wedding sans guests and then celebrating with loved ones afterward.вЂќ
