Just do all the other pictures before the ceremony and 7 should still be early enough for pictures at the ceremony. You’ll get less attendence doing it on a holiday weekend typically.

If the venue didn’t have a suitable start time, then to me it’s not “perfect” and I would find a different venue.

Also, because soneone else has the venue until 5pm, you can’t start decorating the venue until 6pm. So bear that in mind, if decorating is important to you,

Anyway, in answer to your question, either date is fine. I think how a date sounds is the least of your worries. You can’t control how your birthday sounds, so why be picky about the numbers in your wedding date?

amalzingsong:  If you have a 6 pm to 1 am time slot, what would stop you from starting the ceremony at 6 pm?

You can look up online what time sunset will be where you live on any given date.

The day will lengthen by about 10 minutes per week.

on May 21  here in Vancouver sunset will be at 8:57 pm

on May 29  here in Vancouver sunset will be at 9:07 pm

amalzingsong:  Yeah, I am not sure where you are located but here in SC it did not get dark tonight until well after 8, almost 9. And by the end of the month it will be after 9 before it gets dark. As far as a date sounding “pretty” I dont get that. It sounds like date to me. So, if you are set on that certain time (around 5 or 6), then I would change the date, not the time. But, if you want to stick with the later date, have an 8pm wedding and a cake and punch or dessert reception.

amalzingsong: Are you having the ceremony and reception at the same venue?

Are you planning on serving dinner? If the reception doesn’t start until 8:30, dinner won’t be served until likely 9 pm-  a bit on the late side.

amalzingsong:  Think about your family. Do you have elderly members who are really special to you? They may not be able to stay up that late no matter how much they love you. I would suggest finding another venue.
