I'm having my ceremony at 5pm. Our photographer suggested that we leave ourselves at least an hour or hour and a half of pictures in the sunlight afterwards (i have a huge family and lots of pics to take). Plus we want to get our party started earlier since we have to end at 11pm.... We are doing:

5-5:30pm Ceremony

5:30-6:30pm Cocktail hr

~6:30-11pm Reception

I'm so glad you asked the question! If I had to do it over again, the first thing that I would change is the time of the ceremony! IMO I would suggest 4 o'clock or 4:30 for the ceremony. We had a 5 pm ceremony and ran out of daylight for the photos.

 

We actually had to stop because we were out of light and didn't get some photos that I really wanted.

 

Just my opinion. Use or toss.

Consider the time of sunset where you will be AND the weather that time of year. My wedding is at 6:15 pm because P.V. in June it would be unbearable for us and our guests to sit in the mid-day sun.

 

The sun sets close to 8pm in June there so my pictures will not be totally dark.

Well, our wedding started at 5 pm. At that time the sun had begun to set already, so it was beautiful! The ceremony was over in 25 minutes, we toasted and cut the cake.... then ran off with the photographer to get some photos. It was too dark to take photos by 6:15 pm.

Jilly, according to the sunset calendar the sun will set at 6:21pm on your wedding day. Does that mean you'll take pictures during your cocktail hour and then go back during dinner to get sunset shots?

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
