What Is The Best Time Of Day To Get Married In Dr?

Recommended Posts

Hello!

 

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. 

 

Thoughts??

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 :(

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
