San Diego Wedding Guide


San Diego Wedding

There's a reason why San Diego has been called 'America's Finest City' and as you plan your wedding, you'll have plenty of chances to discover why. Situated on the Southern California seacoast, San Diego is the second largest city in the state. Not only is the climate just right and breathtaking beaches a delight, the city provides easy access to the Mexican border, where many bachelorettes have scurried across to party in Tijuana.

Balboa Park

Locals and travelers alike clamor at the thought of the infamous San Diego Zoo and Wild Animal Park, where more than 100 acres are home to a variety of creatures and habitats. Other highlights of the city include Legoland California, Balboa Park, and the Point Loma Lighthouse, which accommodates up to 100 guests for wedding ceremonies and receptions at the Bluff Event Site.


San Diego Wedding Planning: Weather Watch

The weather conditions of San Diego are an engaged couple's dream. With a mild climate, low humidity, and decent air quality, outdoor weddings flourish without any major hassles. The sunny weather of San Diego has been praised by many travel publications, including Consumer Travel's Pleasant Weather Rankings, which ranked the city as the number two location in the world. The cooler, rainier months arrive in November and last until February. Interestingly, these are also the sunniest months of the year.


San Diego Wedding Planning: Tips and Ideas

As you come closer to setting a wedding date, keep in mind that the busiest time of the year in San Diego is between Memorial Day and Labor Day. This is when the kids are enjoying their summer vacation and the seashore swells with people enjoying the warm weather. Planning a beach wedding around July is nearly impossible as Mission Beach and Pacific Beach thicken with tourists and locals. The beachfront hotels book to full capacity in a blink. To enjoy discounts from vendors and enjoy the slow season, consider options available from Thanksgiving to early February.

If you're interested in having a unique ceremony or reception, consider a wedding on the water. For a San Diego wedding cruise, contact a company like San Diego Harbor Excursion (, where you can exchange vows and party aboard a cruise boat with family and friends.
