What time is your ceremony?

Recommended Posts

That sounds really nice. I may have to copy some of your ideas! And yes, there are way too many good ideas. just when I think I know what i'm going to do, I read another good idea.

it sounds like you have a great plan set out :) good luck with everything and i can't wait to hear how everything turns out.

 

we had debated with this for a while but decided on a 2pm ceremony. we are planning on doing a tea ceremony after the wedding so wanted more time for that and pictures. we also tried to factor in the amt of sunlight and risk of rain.

 

good luck :)

we are currently booked in for the 2pm slot although we didnt select this the travel agents did we were just specific on the date we wanted

we have tried to request the 4pm slot but were told there is another wedding already on at 4pm so we will wait and see if it is free when we arrive

Our wedding was at 3:30...we didn't want to much time between ceremony and dinner at 630...i now wish we had our ceremony at 2. we didn't ahve much time for photos after the ceremony becuase you have the champagne toast and everyone wants to talk to you. our guests all just hung out at the terrace bar and mingled and enjoyed themselves. some went back to their room to freshen up, etc. also at 330 was when the clouds would usually come out and the wind would blow. annoying with the vail. i'd say 2ish would be the best time IMO!

now of course, nothing's set with me yet. but i found this link 10.01.09 Christi and Scott | Excellence Riviera | Photos by Matt on an older thread and it reminded me how i love tropical mornings. i love how bright and vibrant to colors pop in the photos!
I believe you can not get married in Jamaica on Sundays or Holidays sad.gif

My wedding is at 1pm....I wanted 2, but there is another wedding after mine, so they pushed me up to one....but I figured early afternoon would be really nice in the pix! All bright colours! And then we can still take some during sunset....hoping that we havent had too much to drink by then!

I've planned mine for 5pm with reception at 630 that gives us time to get all our pictures in plus to gather with our guests for the cocktail hour. (Dreams Los Cabos)

@donutdjn, my daughter's wedding is also during the hurricane season (in Sept), which when we booked we were unaware of, however, I believe that just like someone getting marry in the winter,where it may or may not snow, the bridal couple picks the best available time for them. We are going to purchase weather insurance, but I believe we all are going to have beautiful weather!!

What's weather insurance?? That's a new one that I have not heard of before...

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
