Time of sunset in Cancun in November

Recommended Posts

Hello!

 

My WC wants to move my wedding time, in the gazebo, from 4pm to 5pm. I am worried it will be too dark. Does anyone know how dark it will be at 5pm and 6pm in Cancun in November?

 

Thanks so much!

It's harder for photographers to take pictures in the dark. If I am not mistaken In November sunset is around 5pm. It does gets dark pretty quickly. Unless you want those kind of shots, I'd keep it at around 4pm!

What is throwing us off is that we are taking all posed pictures before the wedding... so we aren't worried about photos after. Do we do it and have the ceremony at sunset and go to reception in the dark or do we want to see the sun set at the reception! Ahhhh...

I think if your doing photos together before the ceremony that you should be ok, however something to think about. is the light during the group photos after the ceremony.

The WC just emailed me again and said that she wants me to move it because of the 2 other weddings the same day! WHAT? That is not what I was expecting at all. I went from really happy to now for the first time a bit stressed out. I am picturing my guests showing up and them having to wait for the other wedding guests to leave the area. Now she wants to know ASAP about moving the time of the wedding. Does anyone know if the time of sunset is 5:07, is that when it is dark, is that still light? Is that when the sun first touches the ocean? If that is the case, it might not be so bad. HELP PLEASE! I am so afraid that I am paying all this money for the view of the ocean all around us and we might not even be able to see it.

If sun sets at 5:07, your signature image is about 4:50 :)

Big and popular resorts are known to hold a number of wedding on the same day. They should be able to coordinate everything with you so you aren't standing and waiting.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
