    My FI didn't want us to spend the extra $400 charge for a later time - "sunset time" so the hotel said 2pm is the only other time available besides 10am.

    ceremony is on the beach so I'm concerned we all would be baking in the sun.

    i really don't want to be a pain and try to justify the extra spending because we could use it towards favours, invites or something.... he's been so good with everything so far, and this is 1 of the few things he's asked, that we save this extra bit of money.....

    should be okay, right

    ....what will guests do between ceremony and reception, after photos.....?

        It's not Mexico, but we got married in Jamaica at 4pm in April and it was crazy hot. I'm talking 45+ with the humidity. DH was sweating through the ceremony. I wouldn't have changed a thing!

            WOW, people in Mexico amaze me.... Interesting that they are now capitalizing on the "preferred" ceremony start time.

            Without a doubt, its hot. Our seasonal guide will help a little.

            We would suggest to change the time to later in the day. Mid day weddings will result in people squinting and the lighting is a tad harsher. If possible, go for the later time, it will be a better plan :)

            good luck,
            mateo

                  I planned a 2pm in Mexico in Aug and expect it to be blazing hot. You only have to stick it out for 20 mins, and I did buy sandlewood fans for my guest (cheap for OT) which should be appreciated. I'd move it to a cooler time but I think it's nice to be able to enjoy breakfast and not have to get up at the crack of dawn for a marathon of spa services. Just easy and relaxed for your big day.

                    I think it'll be really hot too! The money you save on not having the reception at 4pm, you'll just end up spending on a cocktail hour and champagne toast to entertain your guests. If you have a 4pm ceremony then you can go directly to dinner afterwards.

                      after much debate, we've changed our ceremony time to 4pm =)
                      with dinner at 6pm. yay!
