I was thinking about adding some lit lanterns next to the chairs for my outdoor ceremony.
My question is… if the sun sets at 6:07pm that day and our ceremony starts at 5:30pm… is it worth putting lanterns out??? or will the sun be up too much!? The ceremony will only last like, 15 minutes…

I guess it depends on what website you are looking at calls “sun set.” I’ve found that it really tends to range from when the bottom part of the sun hits the horizon to sun cannot be seen any longer. Does the website clarify this?

The way I kind of went about figuring this out is I looked at the sunset time one day and I waited until that time to see exactly how light it was out at the time that the website called sunset. In your case look at when the sun will set today and subtract 37 minutes and see what it’s like. It might be a strange way to do it but you get to watch the sun set!

The sunrise/sunset calculator here is super helpful for figuring out just how much twillight you’ll experience. It breaks it down into civil twillight, nautical twillight, etc., so you can get an accurate idea of the light level during your ceremony.
