    I am wondering what the best time of day to get married? I have a choice between 6pm or 1pm. Not the time I really wanted. I want my pictures to be in the sun but I dont want to be in my dress all day. Just wondering what everyone's opinions are!

      6pm would be ideal because it won't be so hot and the sun won't beat you up. Other resort guest would have already picked up and not be lounging around the resort. If the ceremony is only about 30 mins. then you can get some nice photos at sun set. Question is.... What time does the sun set in the month you're getting married? This can work out perfectly because then your guest can go to cocktail hour, if you're having one, while you're having your photo session. Once you're done, you'll be ready for the reception and not have to be in your dress all day long.


      In my opinion I wouldn't do a 1pm ceremony because you'll have too many resort guest lounging around with the possibility of coming out in the back ground of your photos and it's that time of the day when the sun is very strong. You can get great photos but I think you'd be squinting in most of them due to the brightness of the sun. It's also too big of time gap until the reception and guest will just wander off and not make it to the reception on time.


      Either way, it's your special day and you choose as you see fit. It's tough making these decisions because all of the little things that won't seem important to others, are important to the bride. Why does it have to be so difficult right? LOL  Good luck and happy planning :)
