    Hey all PC brides out there- I originally scheduled my ceremony for 6 pm at the end of June. After reading some threads and talking with a TA I thought about moving it up to 5 because I'm nervous about running out of light for pictures. However I asked, and was told that in order to have a 5 pm ceremony I would have to change the date altogether arg!!!!

    My question is does anyone have experience with 6pm ceremonies in June negatively impacting post-wedding photo sessions? I am most concerned about lighting, but are there other issues I've missed?

    Thank you all so much!

    Amy

      Thats depends which photos are important for you !! The ceremony normally I ts 10-15min ,which means you have 1 hour sure ,a professional Photographer normally even longer to 19:30PM. (1h 30 Min ).
      A photo session after the wedding of the bride and groom I would make first, later family pictures and wedding Party ect.

        Hi Amy, I considered the Moon Palace Punta Cana as one of my resort options but they said they didn't have their wedding packages ready just yet. were you able to obtain the cost for the cost for the wedding packages ?

          sunset is late in june. it's after 8:30PM. The late evening sun is better for pictures anyway.

          I would have liked a late ceremony, but I wanted to get to dinner by 6:30. We are early bird eaters.

                Great news thank you! I woke up today considering changing to an even earlier time but your responses have eased my worries! Lrdavis23- you are correct that MP doesn't have package prices yet, but you can look at the prices and features at their other resorts for a general idea. I had to reserve for the complementary package then I will upgrade later. I'm trying to get a good MP thread going- I believe it's titled The New Moon Palace... Come visit for info! Can't post a link from my phone sorry!
