ceremony starts at 615. sun sets at 623

Recommended Posts

we're getting married at las caletas on November 3, 2008. I recently saw a sunset calculator in another thread and punched our date in. Concerned over the time between ceremony starting and the sun setting I emailed our WC to see if we could move up the timing. No such luck. So she tells me that our ceremony starts at 615 and the sun sets at 623. I'm FLIPPING out. Our ceremony is going to start and it will already be dark!!! Needless to say we're not going to get any good pictures with our families on the beach during the daylight hours.

 

Now what?! She said we can move our date up. Which is still a possibility since we haven't sent STDs yet (as luck would have it i ordered them yesterday)

 

so gals, what would you do? i'm stressing now. our deposit is down.. ugh

Don't worry Tara, I'm sure everything will work itself out. Can you take some pics before you leave to LC? And imaging placing candles all around your ceremony area. That would be beautiful. (I remeber that Friends episode when Ross was marrying Emily and there were hundereds of candles everywhere!)

Also, double check which sunset that is. There are 3 kinds - actual, and 2 others I can't remember the name of. It might not mean it will actually be dark at 6:23 - just dusk.

the problem with that, and Las Caletas is that the guests and your FI probably won't show up until not too long before the ceremony begins. there really isn't a ton of time before the ceremony to take pictures. i don't know how flexible that is - but since Las Caletas is actually open to the day tour during the day, there isn't a ton of extra time!

since you've been there would it be wierd to have FI and fam come over during the day?

i think there was a bride that had her FI come over early too. i don't think it would be weird - there's definitely plenty to do - you do go over with the regular day tour - there's snorkling, monkeys, a spa (like for massages, etc.), lunch, etc. you do have to pay for each additional person (you get 3 free), but it might be an option for you.
