What time of day are you saying I do at ?

Kate, on July 19, 2023 at 10:09 Posted in Plan a wedding 0 65

Hello all Smiley heart

I've read the most common ceremony time is from 1pm-3pm. Curious to know what time are y'all getting married? morning? afternoon? late afternoon? evening?

We had our small celebration ceremony at 5pm, with my husbands kids present. It was very intimate and just us before all of our guests arrived for our evening reception. I liked having it closer to the end of the day as it was outside on a terrace and the sun wasn't blazing and it led right into the evening party. I've never been to one, but something about a late evening ceremony I find so romantic!

    Our cocktail hour starts at 4:30 (we are doing all our bridal party pictures at this time) with the ceremony starting at 5:30. Then pictures with guests right after and seated for dinner by 7pm and dancing around 8:30. No down time for our guests and they have the entire day to themselves. I love the later start for getting ready too!! 24 days away!!

    Yes exactly. Plus it allows us not to rush in the morning and still have a good party at night until midnight.

    We are getting married about 45 minutes before sunset, around 6:45 so our wedding photos can be taken at sunset since there will be an almost full harvest moon happening.

    4pm seems to be a very popular ceremony start time. I love it, more of a heading into evening vibe and less wait time until dinner. Good call ladies! Smiley heart

    I'm the type of person who freezes, but I got my mother-in-law to knit me a scarf with sleeves for the wedding, it's perfect for the fall weddings.

    Honestly because we got married later in the evening it worked out nice, cool breeze but otherwise, during the day I totally get it, August can be brutally hot not to mention humid - so not ideal for make up and hair.

    Sounds smart that you guys are leaving yourselves enough time - it's nice to have photos from the day and it can be so easy to miss because everyone is running around and/or there is not enough time.

    4pm is nice, close to cocktail hour and dinner, does not leave guests waiting too long. Are you guys doing photos after the ceremony?

    My ceremony is at 1:00 but we put 12:30 on the invitation. We wanted to have time and not rush taking pictures since we both have big families( each have over 20) and a huge bridal party( 16 in total). We wanted to also do a first look before the ceremony at 5:30
