Am I crazy for wanting a morning beach wedding?!

Recommended Posts

I'm getting married in August. The sun doesn't set until around 8 pm.

 

my question is:

 

Is 10-11 am too early/hot for a morning wedding, with cake and punch at 1-2 pm.? We are having an AHR so we don't want to have a BIG reception in Florida.

 

I don't want to wait ALL DAY to get married, and would like for our guests to be able to enjoy themselves the rest of the day. I know many of you are having late afternoon weddings. Is there anyone who had an early ceremony?

I dont think you are crazy at all. Its your day. I would think the hottest part of the day would be around noon or so. Do want is best for you and your guests!

We had a 1 p.m. ceremony and it took most of the morning to get showered, (woke up at 6:30 a.m.), hair/makeup, dressed, organized, taxi over to our wedding location, etc. I think we could have been ready by noon but that would have rushed us a lot more. A morning wedding sounds beautiful but you don't want to be too rushed either.

Our wedding was at 11 a.m. and I felt rushed simply because I had to get ready, get off the cruise ship, and meet the Rev in port by 9:30 am or our ceremony would not be legal. As long as you are already at the hotel or location you are getting married and no meetings need to take place prior to then I say go for it! Just be prepared to wake up early but if you are like me you'll prolly be so excited you can't sleep in anyways.

I agree that you should have your ceremony at the time that you and your FI want and I think it's great that you are taking the comfort level of your guests into consideration pertaining to the heat. I think it's also important to have enough time for you guys to comfortably get ready in the morning.

Actually, not at all. I kinda wish it would have been! We woke up to cooler temps, lots of humidity, wind, total overcast, and rain. I hoped it would pass but no such luck. Our WC asked that we be ready promptly at 1 p.m. because there was a break in the rain. Instead, our minister was missing and they had to find a new one. That pushed our ceremony back until 1:45. Luckily, the break in the rain continued until about 2 minutes after our ceremony ended. Because of this our pictures are pretty bad and there won't be much to our video as we all hid under tents. I'm trying to be positive about it but it does make me pretty sad. Sorry for the rant, but I will say if the sun would have been shining it would have been HOT because of the humidity! And we had temps in the low to mid 70s. If you want an earlier ceremony I would go for 11:30ish to give you enough time in the morning. I couldn't sleep well either but you don't want to get up so early that you are exhausted by early evening.

We are trying to get the ceremony right in front of the beachfront hotel, so all the guests will have to do is walk down a couple of steps to get to the wedding site, which is great.

 

As mentioned, I do think that I will be too excited to sleep and I definately am a morning person...

 

I want 11 am but just scared that it will be HOT by the time we take our pictures on the beach right after ceremony.

My name is Marisol Vera and I am wedding planner; if you are looking for a destination wedding Cancun and Riviera Maya are great options and pretty safe since all the hotels and resorts are taking great care of their guests and visitors.

    • It depends on how far you can go, Can you go out of US for destination wedding, If yes then their are tons of options Ex. Bali,Thailand is becoming the new hot spot for destination weddings, Other one I would recommend is Rajasthan,India It might be expensive wedding but totally worth it the wedding takes place in palaces. If you don't have that much of budget still their are many options available such as Sicily,Italy - get the authentic wedding ceremony in Italy other one i would recommend is going to Spain their iconic scenery are perfect for a wedding. Thanks🙂
