What time do you think is a good time in March to start a ceremony. I do not want it to be dark for one and I do not want it to be too cool either. Our wedding is MArch 13, 2010 which is before daylight savings times so it will still get dark earlier. We were thinking around 4 or 4:30 pm.

I’m getting married on March 13 too!! We’re starting our ceremony at 5pm, but it really it depends on when you want your pictures done and if you are having pictures done or getting married outside.

I forgot to mention, it will be an outdoor ceremony with an alternate plan for inclement weather. We will be taking pictures afterwards and I saw some awesomne pictures in the venues photo albums during dusk…wow, the sky was the most beautiful mix of purples, blues and oranges…what are the odds of taking pictures at that time. That bride got very lucky.

Depends how long your ceremony will take. The best time for pictures is right before and after the sun goes down. If the sun is scheduled to set at 5, make sure you’re done with your ceremony and at your picture location at 4:30.

- Wedding: June 2010 - Ceremony - First United Methodist Church; Reception - My parents' house!
From almanac.com, your sun times will be as followed on that day:
Sun will rise at 6:35 am, sun will set at 6:30 pm.
(That’s for Cypress, TX, since that’s where it says your wedding is by your namey-poo).
Hope that helps you make some decisions!

I’m starting ours at 6:00pm because in April sunset is suppose to be close to 7:00. The photographer told me that in order to get really nice pictures to have the ceremony end 30 mins before sunset so they have time to get the group shoots and pics of me and my hubby before the sun goes down.

I was hoping for 3:30 but just heard from our venue that due to needing to make other guests leave the lawn at the resort and time to set up that we cannot have it any earlier than 4pm…. so I am debating 4 or 4:30. I guess I’ll have to check the almanac.

Our venue is pretty strict on timelines. So, we’re starting our ceremony at 7:30. We’re after daylight savings though, so we should be having our ceremony as the sun is setting. I love that we’ll have pictures from throughout the day (attendant pictures in the daylight, wedding with the sun setting and family/group pictures at dusk)!

We are getting married on March 3 and our wedding will start at 5 p.m. But we are also getting married in Florida and sunset isn’t until 6:30.

Our ceremony will start at 4:30pm, we’re going to be the day before Daylight Savings so we wanted the earliest slot we could get without making it a lunch wedding which we didn’t want to do.

Our ceremony is starting at five o’clock, and the reception should start at around 6:30 or 7pm, depending on when our ceremony space is flipped into our reception space…

Our ceremony is starting at 3, reception around 5, was going to have it later in the evening but we are having an after reception get together at our house and didnt want it to run over into the hours of the morning

I am thinking that I would like to have my wedding around 12 or 1 because that is when the light will be best as well as having a good afternoon with the reception and leaving evening alone time for us without being zonked.
I am in AK, and in a LDR…until the wedding. I have seen him once in the past 6 months (he proposed twoish weeks ago when he came to see me) and I will see him right before Christmas.
So we are REALLY going to be ready for alone time. Our engagement is rather short some might say, but I don’t want to be away from him any longer than I need too… 🙁
