This is a question for those that have seen the sunset in Cancun. We are getting married in December, and the ceremony is scheduled to begin at 5pm (cocktail hour is 4-5). According to various sources, we have been notified that the sun should set at around 5-5:15pm then. Additionally, we were told that when the sun sets in Cancun, it's not a gradual scenic event, but rather a sudden change in the color of the sky. I am wondering what color the sky would be at sunset. Does it get pitch black right away or does the sky gradually get dark but still gives enough light to see the surroundings for a little while. I am thinking to move the ceremony time to 4pm instead of 5 (cocktail hour 3-4), but if I do this then I would not be able to have fireworks immediately following the ceremony as I had initially planned. So it's a tough decision. On the other hand though, if we have the ceremony when it is still light out the pictures may come out a bit nicer and the guests could enjoy the rooftop view from the reception for a short period of time (whereas if we go up there after 5:30 as we are currently scheduled, if the sky is totally black then, they will not see the view at all).
Thank you in advance =)
