Wow,we get lucky and have the entire month of October in 2010 as daylight savings :) YEAY.

I hope this info can help those out there keep an eye open for potential problems that might occur while planning!

Saludos

Yes, this is correct.



Daylight Saving Time in Mexico begins at 2:00 a.m. local time on the first Sunday in April. On the last Sunday in October areas on Daylight Saving Time fall back to Standard Time at 2:00 a.m. The names in each time zone change along with Daylight Saving Time. Central Standard Time (CST) becomes Central Daylight Time (CDT), and so forth. The state of Sonora does not observe Daylight Saving Time.

I just got of the phone with one of our clients who planned a 4:30 pm start time on March 29. Little did she know, at 5ish, its dark. She has sent our invitations for 4:30 and now will be changing her start time to 4pm.

Point is, most hotels recommend a ceremony start time based on their best interest. This usually involves a total lack or concern as to the appropriate time needed (if photos are impt for you) after the ceremony.

We usually recommend to start your wedding 45 minutes to 60 minutes prior to the scheduled sunset, depending on wedding party size and post ceremony photo expectations. While every client has different needs, the time frame of 45-60 min prior to sunset will always serve your best interests (in our opinion) for the best light available---vs no light.

Good luck planning, I hope more March brides see this!

Saludos,
mateo

FYI Reminder to brides and folks coming to the Riviera Maya...    Mexico does not observe the extended daylight savings that the USA does.

 

Daylight Saving Time in Mexico begins at 2:00 a.m. local time on the first Sunday in April. On the last Sunday in October areas on Daylight Saving Time fall back to Standard Time at 2:00 a.m. The names in each time zone change along with Daylight Saving Time. Central Standard Time (CST) becomes Central Daylight Time (CDT), and so forth. The state of Sonora does not observe Daylight Saving Time.

Thanks for the reminder!  It's a little weird because I'm getting married Oct 30th...the time changes that night in Mexico but it does not change in the US until Nov 7th...but at least my guests will get an extra hour of sleep!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
