    So Erik is now talking about Honeymoons, I mentioned I wanted to go to Italy (Venice). So we were thinking of having wedding in May instead of June. Since it's nice and sunny in May. Is this a good time to go to Italy though?
    Or should we wait till June?
    I just talked to the surf and sand resort and they told me I can't even reserve the date for the wedding with them till 9 months before the wedding....So now i'm planning this....so frustrating!!! I want my date! Sorry for going a little nuts there. LOL

      From what I can see, April to June is the best time... here, check these out:

        I went to Italy in June about 10 years ago and it was really hot and really crowded...I think you're best to go before June to avoid the family/tourist travel season. We're doing a delayed honeymoon to Italy in late september.....tourists will hopefully be fewer then.

        my mom is going this November right before it gets too cold...but if you can go in may, but what if you get a teaching job? honestly its really hard to take off time at the end of the year, I am super busy right now and I am sure elem. is similar.

            I love Italy.

            The best times are May, September, and October.

            You don't want to go too early in May, though. The first week some hotels and restaurants are still closed. If you're sticking to the main towns, you'll be fine, but places like the Cinc Terre (SO GREAT THERE) and Portofino will still be breaking in their hotel staff members. That happend to me on one of my trips there and that was the third week of May.

            I avoid mid-June through Aug. 31. The crowds are bad and it's really hot.

              ITA with Natasha.

              June will be really crowded. In August/ early Sept a lot of the towns shut down as the locals go on holiday.

              The S&S is a nice hotel but gets very mediocre reviews. Are there any other hotels / venues that you are looking at in OC?

                I was in Italy from the end of May through the end of June. All I know is most of the trip we were comfortable --- not too warm or cold (but I am from Florida) but our last stop was Milan at the end of June and it was horrible, pouring sweat disgusting...

                  I went last year at the end of September and it was downright perfect weather for being a tourist there and it just felt ideal. Good luck!

                    I found that Florence was super duper hot and crowded in June. I found that Rome was much more bearable. Spring is usually a good time to go because it is not too hot and the days are longer...:) I would aim for Spring then Fall then Summer.
