Is October too cold?!?

I am helping plan a wedding in the Hudson Valley, and we are considering having it outdoor (at Boscobel) in October.  We're scared that it's going to be too cold though!!  Please let me know what you think!!  We need to make a decision soon, but this one issue has put us at a standstill.

    my wedding was 10/24 and it was only slightly chilly due to it having RAINED ALL DAY :( but the next day was gorgeous and totally comfortable.  The week leading up to the wedding was comfy too.

    I would say do it.  the worst that happens is people throw a coat on..i doubt they will need a winter coat by then...just a sweater if at all

    It can definitely be too cold. Are you planning on having just a short ceremony outside, or the entire ceremony and reception? I could see bringing heaters in for the reception, but I wouldn't have an outside ceremony without a backup plan.

    If it is just the ceremony outside and you let your guests know then thats ok. The women can bring a wrap/shawl or whatever and usually all the men have on suit jackets anyway. 

    But if your talking about the entire reception then yes it is absolutely to cold to have outside.

    It can definitely be cold depending on when in the month you want to get married.

    I am getting married october 12th, 2011 and we are having an outdoor ceremony in the gazebo of our reception site. our ceremony will be about a half hour. our ceremony time is 6 p.m. so I am ecpecting it to be a little chilly. include on your invites that the ceremony will be outside. also, depending on your budget, i went to a wedding that provided shawls and umbrellas to the guests.

     I second the Shawls may be a nice addition for the guests -

    You never know with October in NY.  It could be 70, it could be 30.  I would prepare for the cold weather.  I am having the same debate because I love October but also want an outdoot ceremony.  Good luck!
