          At 4:00 PM. Venue's suggestion (below) and as a contingency for anything happening later than scheduled due to "island time." I really like sunset pictures but I still want daylight to be an option:

          "Depending on the time of the year (summer or winter) we suggest having the ceremony between 4:00 and 5:30 pm. because the heat of the day has passed yet you still have enough light to take quality photos after the ceremony..."

            I am getting married at 9 a.m., partly because I am arriving to Jamaica by cruise. I am also hoping the sun won't be too hot at that time.

              I got married at 5:30 on June 5th in Punta Cana. The sun was setting but it allowed for a comfortable environment since the sun was not strong.

                We are booked at 4pm, but I am now thinking 3pm? I saw the rainfall chart for Jamaica and it worries me as I am praying for nice weather as we are getting married on the beach...as its one of the main reasons we are travelling all that way.

                Has anyone had a wedding in JA at 4pm...was it okay or would you suggest going with 3pm? Was it okay for timing with dinner?
                Today I marry my bestfriend, the one I laugh with, the one I love.

                  I wanted to go with a later time like 4pm because i don't want there to be too much time between the ceremony and the reception.

                    I'm wondering - how did you all decide what time to get married (if you had a choice)? I know that the country does not allow any weddings after 6pm. I love mornings in JA, but I'm looking forward to good food and drinks and dancing and I don't know how folks would feel about being tipsy by early afternoon! I like the idea of a sunset ceremony -- if the sun sets at 6:30, what will it look like at 5:00pm. Just wondering what's best for pictures (??)
                    We're getting married at 4p. I wanted to make sure there wasnt too much inbetween time (from the ceremony to dinner at 6:30p). This way, we have some time to take pictures with our guests after the ceremony, and also have our prof pictures done too.

                      4pm for us. Not as hot as 12pm or 2pm; close to reception time, so guest can't stroll off too far; and still a lot of great light available for photos.
