        Talk to the wc at the resort or place that you will be getting married. If you're looking to have a sunset wedding then the general rule that I've been hearing is 2 hours before sunset. This should allow for enough time to say your vows and then the lighting should be just right for pics afterwards. Morning weddings are always good because the beach is less crowded so their's less of a chance that you'll get unwanted stragglers in your wedding pics. I would stay away from the afternoon/high sun just b/c it's hot and their's to many people on the beach. Definitly talk to your photographer, they'll be able to give you the best recommendations possible. Good luck!

            im getting married at 4pm, as i've heard it's not as hot then and there aren't too many people on the beach, also, it'll give nice photo's before sunset :)

                We are also getting married at 6pm, wanted to give our guests most of the day for excursions/beach time and because it won't be as hot then. I would also recommend talking to your wc at the hotel to make sure your time works with the reception activities.

                  We got married at 4 in November and I thought it was a bit too late. 3 or 330 would've been better in my opinion...just for pictures sake. But the temperature was perfect and I had the whole day to relax and get ready.

                    My wedding is in April and we are planning a 5:00 ceremony. The sun sets around 7pm at that time of year. I liked the idea of having the day to get ready and allow my guests another day of vacation time! Not to mention hopefully avoiding the direct sun heat :)
