|If you are planning
a wedding in Asheville, you should be aware that, while the weather is
mild and agreeable most of the time, conditions change frequently. A
favorite saying here is, "If you don't like the weather, just
wait a minute, it will change." Meteorologists blame this
on our location between two giant mountain ranges -- the Great Smoky
Mountains and the Blue Ridge Mountains. We enjoy four distinct
seasons, with snowy, cold winters, cool, rainy springs, hot, bright
summers, and crisp falls with lots of color. While outdoor weddings
look nice on t.v., most of them are filmed in sunny,
dry Southern California. If any part of your event is going to be
outdoors, we encourage you to plan for inclement weather.
And definitely plan on cooler temperatures after dark.
