Weather and Public Holidays

Weather and how long should I stay?

April - October is the main wedding season but more couples are coming over to Cyprus to get married during the winter months too as the climate is so good and flights/hotels are much less expensive.

Cyprus is in the Mediterranean and benefits from short mild winters and long dry & warm summers. An average of more than 300 days of sunshine each year.  Along the coast and on the beach it is much warmer and becomes much cooler as you move inland towards the mountains.

Average temperatures below can be much higher or lower depending on whether you are on the coast or inland. Over the past few years weather has been changing and surprising us locals some months, even during April, September and October when temperatures have reached much higher.
During July and August the high humidity continues into the evening and can make it feel much hotter even on the beach if there isn't a breeze that day.

March & April are pleasant months mainly warm and sunny with occasional cloud and rain and windy some days.
May is a lovely month in Paphos, the flowers are at their best and most lush, in full bloom just before full heat of the summer months starts to dry out the soil.
The beginning of June is the start of summer in Paphos. Rain is very unlikely from June until mid September.
By mid June we start using our air conditioning during the day and overnight sometimes as it becomes more humid, also in July and August.
By mid September it is still very warm and sunny, but less humid and more comfortable.  There might be some rain occasionally during this month.
October is still very warm sunny, similar to April with some cloud and rain. Some occur during the last week, but are often only through the night. 
November and December can be mixed, some years have been rainy others we have had more sun.

How long should I stay in Cyprus?

I would highly recommend 2 weeks or longer, leaving at least 7 days following your wedding to enjoy your honeymoon and relax. When you arrive in Cyprus there will be meetings with either your planner and/or wedding venue, wedding suppliers and finalising everything including legal documents.
When I married in Las Vegas, I arrived on the Monday night, spent Tues, Wed & Thurs sorting everything.  I married on the Friday, picked up my photos on the Saturday and was home again on the Monday.  Way, way too fast!!!  I didn't get chance to relax.  Well never mind we just had to go back a few months later for 10 days to actually enjoy Las Vegas.
