If you have your heart set on an outdoor wedding why not pick one of France’s sun-drenched regions?

Languedoc
From the Mediterranean shores of the Cote Vermeille to the beautiful medieval walled city of Carcassonne, the Languedoc-Roussillon region of the south of France is one of the sunniest in the country. Sunshine is nearly guaranteed from May to December, providing a fantastic destination for your “shoulder season” or even “off-season” destination wedding in France. Worth noting that July and August can be quite hot, with temperatures reaching 30C/86F.

Provence
The lavender-filled hillsides of Provence are the perfect compliment to this year’s hot wedding color combo of grey and purple. Enjoy the +300 days of sunshine, the provençal cuisine, and the quaint villages and country houses. Worth noting is that the Mistral, the (in)famous wind that originates in the Alps, can swoop in at any time; the Mistral is strongest in the Cotes du Rhone valley.

Cote d’Azur
The epicenter of the international jet-set during the summer, there is no more glamorous spot than the famous French Riviera. Nice, St Tropez, St Jean du Cap Ferrat all feature luxurious hotels and wedding venues to impress the most demanding bride-to-be. Worth noting that July and August are peak season and reservations are best made well in advance.
