11:00 am ceremony. Bad choice?

Recommended Posts

My daughters ceremony is 11:00 am on the beach. I couldnt sleep last night for thinking that our friends are going to be broiling in the sun and miserable. Will the ocean breeze help enough? Has anyone done a ceremony this early in the day? I've always traveled to Mexico in the summer, so maybe it's not as hot now??

Hmmm it may not be that bad at 11am since it is still early. If it were at like 1 or 2 pm I would be a little worried. Is there a reason she wanted an early ceremony? Most DW brides do the evening simply for the beauty of the sunset :)

I made raffia fans for my guests to use if they are hot during our ceremony. Obviously it doesn't SOLVE the problem, but it can atleast help keep them comfortable for 20 mins. Ours is at 3pm though...

thanks everyone. She wanted it early so we could all relax and have fun the rest of the day. She has a white swim suit and I made a cute little veil to wear in the pool all day. We have a dinner scheduled that night. Ok I need fans...

I'd be worried about getting ready in time. It will take about an hour for hair, then make up, breakfast, dressing etc. Then what do you for the rest of the day until dinner.

Wow that is a good idea for a laid back wedding - hanging out in the sun all day! I have been down to Cancun a few times, and the sun gets really strong around 12-1pm... so 11:00 will be fine!

jenniesmom you are a great Mom! I wish my Mom was here to help, then maybe I wouldn't be losing hair.

 

Anyway, I wanted a wedding at 11AM also so that everyone would have time to enjoy the rest of their day. I figured anytime earlier would risk getting myself ready. Plus I'm sure my guest would like to sleep in after staying up late the night before.

 

We are having lunch (off-site) then when we return to resort the rest of their time is all theirs!!! I may have optional excursions planned but for the most part everyone can enjoy their vacation.

Hello , I am indipendent wedding planner working since 2004 in the Riviera Maya...I am sorry to disappoint you but in April at 11.00 AM it sounds pretty crazy to me...I never organize in my career weddings at that time...I only organize weddings like one or 2 (max) hours before the sunset time...actually I am mad when I read staff like that ...how a professional wedding planner can suggest such a terrible time to get marry? Well, try to move your time If not everybody will boil on the beach ...and also the light for the pictures will be too strong at that time, and you will not have good pictures. Good luck ...let me know If you need any extra tips!!

YIPES!! Actually we suggested the time. Jenine wanted to do the wedding early and then feel free to party it up all day. Thank you for your help, I have to think on all of this!
