    I'm getting married at Dreams in August 2009 and will be sending out the invites soon, but have not decided on our ceremony time. Is there a certain time you suggest? 4 PM? 5 PM? I just want to see what others have done since we have to end by 10:30 and want to give our guests enough time for dinner and dancing. Thanks!

      I let my photographer suggest the time. I wanted to make sure we had enough light and enough time to do pics before sunset. We even did some of our family pictures before the ceremony so we had enough time to fit them all in.

      I got married in November. My ceremony started at 4pm. Cocktail hour from 4:30-5:30 and then dinner around 5:45 (after our entrance and first dance). I can't be sure, but I think dinner was over by 7pm. The music ends at 10:30pm at Dreams, and I felt that this gave us plenty of time for dinner and dancing.

        I agree with Twixygrl - if you have no preference for times to get married, chose a time when the light is better (closer to sunset rather than high noon).

          We are getting married June 2009. We are going with Manuel Burgoin for our photographer and he suggested getting married at 630 p.m. As the sun sets between 750 and 810. So our plan is ceremony 630-700, individual/group pics as well as cocktail hour 700-800 p.m. Supper to be served at 815, have small speaches during supper. Dance to begin 900 p.m. and go untill 1030. I think that still gives us plenty enough time to do the cake cutting, first dances and dance, then we'll just hit the lobby bar or something!

            I as well am getting married in Nov, and since it is after day light savings time , I am thinking 3:30 or 4pm? Looks like 4m worked well for Melissa.

                I'm getting married in August and I has told Yesica to make it around sunset (7 pm is what she suggested) but now I'm realizing I've made a mistake and I need to move it up in order to have time to take some pictures!
                god thank for the reminder!!!

                  I'm getting married in August '09 as well, and the ceremony time is at 4pm. I figured this will give us enough time for dancing since everything has to be wrapped up by 10:30

                    I agree with Galmourina I think earlier is better for more time to enjoy the reception , and it will be better for pictures.

                      I am getting married at the end of May and my photographer suggested we start the ceremony at 5 pm for the best light. I think that will give us at least 2 hours of dancing, too, so I'm happy with that start time.
