    OK - I think this is the scoop on the time change.... I checked today online and it says that Mexico is changing the clocks in April... I believe it is only the US that is moving the date up...

    Right now the weddings are set for 6pm. The sun has been setting around 7ish...

      FRICK!@!!! I am so pissed about this whole time issue...I just got an email from my photog. He went & scouted my location yesterday to see where the sun will/will not be during the time of our ceremony, which is scheduled for 5pm.

      I went to CSH yesterday for you and took these photos between 4:45 and 5:00 p.m. which should give you an idea of the sun coverage on the beach @ the time of your ceremony. From what I could tell the sun will be entirely gone from the beach @ 5:30 p.m. because it sets behind some hills at the back of CSH. Photography is all about natural light, the more light the better the photos, particularly at the beach. Have you considered having the ceremony a little earlier?
      I did this scouting yesterday because I want you to be totally aware. If we take the majority of the pics AFTER the ceremony I will be photographing in low light and will need to use a flash.

      I did a little more research & it looks like Mexico will not be changing their time until April (as mentioned in previous post). So now I need to try to adjust everything back an hour - hair/makeup, musicians, ceremony time, cocktail hour, dinner hour. DAMMIT!!!~

      At least you found out now, when you have the possibility of moving everything back. Good luck!

        After having consulted local businesses, government sites, on line forums, information sites and a guru in the Himalayas it would appear that Baja WILL NOT follow the 2007 U.S. changes to D.S.T. (Daylight Saving Time). So here in Los Cabos it is still spring forward Sunday April 1st.2007 and fall back Sunday, October 28th.2007. I will try to attach a table I put together for you all.

            i went to weather.com to ensure the sunset was right for my ceremony and it was a disaster! it was way too bright for the ceremony and it messed up the lighting........so pics are not as good.

            major bummer!!!!

                We were in Cabo few days ago, the very day they change the daylight time.

                I check in my iphone few sites to check which one has the ACTUAL-on-site-accurate sunset time and only source in internet who stated sunset time for Oct 27 @ 6:30 - with daylight saving time and on Oct28 @ 5:30- without daylight saving time was Weather underground, scroll down for history/almanac and find your wedding day with a previous year- it is a history/almanac not a foreteller.

                    I don't know where the sunsets at 5:40 p.m. on March 3rd.2008 but it set here in Cabo yesterday (March 3rd) @ 6:20 p.m. I will see if I can attach a sunrise/sunset chart I have made for the planning brides. The chart is for 2008.
