Morocco usually remains sunny almost all year round. The subtropical climate is perfect for a wedding if you love moderate weather with Atlantic and Mediterranean breezes.

The hot season lasts from the end of June to early September, with daily temperatures around 30°C. Thus, the best and most popular months to have a wedding are May, June, September, and October.

During these months you will have lovely and warm temperatures, perfect for an outdoor wedding.

Late Autumn to Early spring

The Beauty of the cool seasons

The months between late autumn and early spring will still please you with temperatures around 20°C. If you love cooler temperatures, this time of the year is perfect for you.

I recommend getting an indoor venue from November to March. These months usually have the most rain throughout the year.

The weather generally varies a bit throughout the country. In the inland as well as in the south, it usually gets more extreme and close to the Sahara. It is scorching in summer and surprisingly cold in winter.
