    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,

                    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!
