    I'm looking to get married in the DR in May or June. I've received updates from numerous hotels about dates and times. What is the best time of day to get married? it seems the options are 10am, 11am, 2pm or 4pm.

    I have been told that 4pm and 5pm are popular sunset around 7:20pm. The bad side to a late day is blocking out full day to get ready.. We are only on resort for 4 nights.

      It depends on time of the year.  It gets dark early in the winter (around 6pm), so around 3.30 pm is perfect time for the ceremony so you have enough time for the photos after.  In the spring/summer it gets dark later (around 7pm) so 4-4.30 pm is great for the ceremony.

      I got married at 4 in March, and it was perfect!  2 pm is really warm, and the sun is at it's hottest.  Just depends on what you want!  Anything in the morning would feel very rushed for makeup, hair, pictures, and getting dressed and organized.

      We're not doing a 1st look, so I went with 3 pm.  That will give us time to get all of our pictures in before we lose the light!  I've got a January wedding, so I think sunset is around 6 p.

      We chose 4 pm because we thought 2 pm would be too hot for everyone, and we can do pictures around sunset time.

      I picked 2pm which is what I didn't want. but at the resort I chose it was either 2 or 4 and I wanted 4 but they told me in order to have the 4pm time then I would have to purchase the most expensive package. I didn't want to purchase that package just to have that time because I found it was a waste of money because I wouldn't need everything in that package anyway. That really sucked so I kind of had no other choice but to pick the hottest time of day :(
