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 :(

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
