Hello Jade,

Congrats on your up coming wedding!

 

If you get married in Mexico, our suggestion will be to hold a ceremony 1:30 mis. before sunset.  At that time, the sun is not strong, the ocean breeze is nice and if your ceremony is facing the ocean it will be not hot.  

 

You have to consider also, if you are having a second ceremony or of your ceremony is at the same resort or perhaps in a Chapel in town, then times will have to change.  

 

Also, if you want to have your photo session prior the ceremony or after ceremony, you always have to talk with your photographer before defining the ceremony time.

 

Just remember that 2 hours before sunset, sun still very strong and your guests might not want to be on the sun if there is no tent.

 

Do not forget to consider some bug spray against mosquitos if you are near the mangrooves or during mosquito season (July to September)

 

On September 2014 sunset is around 7 pm. you can check it out here:

Hey Jade,

 

Once you've settled on a photographer, they will be able to help you choose the best time for your ceremony taking into consideration when you want to take your newlywed shots AND what kind of lighting you want for those.  You can check out out CLIMATE PAGE to get a little more information on sunset times, and things to consider!

 

Happy Planning!

Another good idea my bridesmaid told me to do is have the photographer take the all groomsmen and groom wedding photos while the girls are getting ready. And take the all girls photos before the ceremony. So after the ceremony, you only have the group photos and the couple photos to do. So not everyone is waiting forever for the party to take photos.

Good advice everyone :) We also recommend this timing to our wedding couples, as seen on our Moments That Matter FAQ page link here.........and copied below.

 

What time should I have my ceremony in order to allow enough time for pictures before the sunsets?

The most ideal time is to have your ceremony is 2 hrs before the sun sets. Here in the Mayan Riviera, once the sun starts to set, it happens very quickly! Less than 20 minutes, so we need to work fast during this time.

If your ceremony time does not leave enough time for photos, you do have a few options.

1. Change the time of the ceremony

2. Do the newlywed photos before the ceremony

3. We will use as much light as we can for the newlywed photos, then use creative lighting for the rest of your couples images.

This is not set in stone… just our suggestion to you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Wishing everyone happy research + planning, and that your Wonderful Weddings unfold just the way you envision - Congrats ALL!!!

    • 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.
