    Both months are going to be the about the same rate at most locations, because they consider form April until September prime wedding season so the prices are always higher.  I know that is why I picked to have mine in March, because I am saving over $20pp because it is 'off season' But I would stick with the end of August becasue it is closer to the end 'on season' so you can work on a better price.  Good Luck Laughing

    I've been to a few July weddings and while they were hot they weren't unbearable.  You never really know what the weather will be like in New Jersey anyway!  You could have a beautiful August day like yesterday

    My friend had a beach wedding last July, in Sea Girt.  We were only outside during the ceremony.  The remainder of the event took place indoors.  If you are set on an outside wedding, that would be the only reason you would need to worry about the weather.  If you are doing everything indoors, there shouldn't be much to worry about. 

    Good luck planning!

    Both months have the potential to be very hot but yet again this is Jersey we are talking about it could be any type of weather on any day :0). If you do a later ceremony time it may be alot cooler than a 12 noon ceremony. I myself am a July bride and picked a later ceremony to beat the heat. If it's better time for your budget go for it but keep the location and time in mind for guests comfortability.

    Some locations will discount for July and August. Most of the locations we looked at did, and some discounted August more than July.

    I would go for late August. During the day it's usually hot, but gets cooler and breezier in the evening!
