In India it is during winter that most couples get married because the weather is cool, the food does not get spoilt, the bride can wear heavy silks and jewellery without feeling uncomfortable and guests enjoy the evening because they don;t have to sweat.

Traditionally, June has always been the most popular month for couples to get married. But numbers from the American National Center for Health Statistics show that July and August have been seeing more marriages than June for three years in a row now.
June as the Traditional Wedding Month

Historically, June has always been the most popular month for weddings. That is where the term "June bride" comes from. The month of June derives its name from Juno, the Roman goddess of marriage. It was anciently thought that couples who married in June would be blessed with prosperity and happiness.
Ancient Reasons for June Weddings

There were also many logistical reasons for brides to consider June weddings. Brides married in June were likely to give birth to a first child in spring (also thought to bring good luck) and recover in time for the fall harvest. During medieval times a person's annual bath usually fell in May or June, meaning that June brides still smelled relatively fresh.

All religions have some month or the other which is special. For Christians, they dont have weddings in Lent or during advent. So after Easter and After Christmas are the popular months for wedding. Other religions may have their own.
