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!
