Why June Is the Perfect Time for an Asheville Wedding

Why June Is the Perfect Time for an Asheville Wedding

Asheville, North Carolina, is one of the most popular places for destination weddings. With a variety of outdoor venues with beautiful views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, exciting downtown breweries, and plenty of things to do, Asheville has everything for you. Many couples will be getting engaged during the holiday season, and, as a result, couples will start to feel the pressure of setting a wedding date. 

June is the most popular month to get married in Asheville because so many flowers are in season, the mountains are lush and green, and people are better able to take time off from work to attend. 


Even in the mountain region, summer can become hot during the daytime, with temperatures climbing into the mid to upper 80s. However, you can escape this heat during your ceremony by hosting your wedding at higher elevations, where there are frequent breezes and reprieves from the heat. 

We have put together a list of the most scenic indoors and outdoor locations that are perfect for Asheville’s June weather.
