    Hello brides,

    First of all, please forgive me if i write something wrong, i am not american, hehehe, and i learned english on my own!!!

    My fiance and I decided we would get married in Sarasota, on his family condo, with the cerimony in the beach, and i just loved it!!!!! But we still need to wait all the visa process, so i dont have sure about our wedding date, but my question is...what month it is hotter in Sarasota? He says in winter it is very nice, but i dont want nice...i want sun...lol..and an amazing sunset to take pics....I already say that in my country, hot and nice means 111 F! lol...helpppppppp!!!!

    thanks

        I am from there! Either time will be great! It will more likely be hotter in Septemeber...but there is the hurricane season worry. In December it is usually low 80s high 70s unless we get the occasional cold front. Then it only is high 60's low 70's!

        Have fun!

          I know this post is about a month old, but I hope I can still help. I live in Tampa (about an hour north of Sarasota) and have lived in Florida my entire life. Plus, I'm a water resources engineer so I know a great deal about Florida's hydrology.

          December will probably be the "safest" of the two months, but the occasional cold front could make a beach wedding a little too cool (although not unbearable... usually in the mid 50's). Daily highs are usually in the mid 70's, evenings in the 60's, and sky is absolutely beautiful... usually clear and blue. Chance of rain isn’t too bad... about 2 inches during December and usually only occurs just before a cold front comes through.

          September will likely be on the hot/wet side... average daily highs are in the upper 80's/low 90's, evenings in the low 80's, and it’s pretty humid. It’s still hurricane season and will rain quite a bit... 8 inches for Sept on average. Afternoon thunderstorms are very common. The highest rainy months are July and August. Also, be warned... In 2004 we had a horrible hurricane season... 3 major hurricanes hit Florida in September alone! That's one almost every week!

          Ideally, the best time for an outside wedding in Sarasota is November. Average daily highs are in the upper 70's, evenings in the upper 60’s/low 70’s, and rain usually isn’t much of a problem (about 2 inches/month). November is a lot like December only a little warmer and there aren't as many cold fronts.

          As for the sunshine... Florida is called the Sunshine State for a reason. Unless there is a cold front coming through, a hurricane, or the typical afternoon thunderstorms, you can guarantee that the sun will be shining!

          I hope this helps!!! Good luck!
