Raleigh Wedding Planning: A Look at the Local Calendar
If you’re a traditional girl and you have your heart set on a June wedding, you’re in luck! Not only is Raleigh home to some of the most beautiful outdoor wedding venues, but the weather in June is just as gorgeous. A chance of rain isn’t completely out of the question, so be sure you have a backup plan in case things get damp.
As you’re setting your wedding date, remember that Raleigh is the state capitol, as well as home to several colleges and universities. The Capitol Buildings attracts tourists and educational outings throughout the year, so book any necessary hotel arrangements early. Hotels can also fill quickly at the beginning of the college year, typically in late August or early September, or during graduation in May.
