Ok girls, I’m trying to decide whether to have an afternoon or evening wedding. We’ve changed our date to August 30th 2014 (and idk how to change it on here lol) but not sure what time to have it. It’s going to be warm no matter what part of the day so that shouldnt matter but I just can’t decide!! Tell me what you think.

go to your profile and you can edit your date there.
I personally prefer afternoon weddings.

This really would depend on the look you desire for your wedding. I wanted my groom and the groomsmen to be in tails and white-tie, and the mothers and bridesmaids to be in long gowns, so I had a 6 p.m. wedding. However, you also can have a formal, daytime wedding with formal, daytime attire.

Depends on a few things:
What kind of meal do you want to serve?
What do you want to wear?
Are most of the guests travelling?
Do you want dancing?
Do you want an outdoor ceremony?

Afternoon! We have a scenic boat wedding and are serving lunch. Then groom and I get to go away in a limo to our wedding night hotel and spend some of our wedding day alone together and not exhausted.

It really depends on your location and if you want it indoors or outdoors. I like late afternoon weddings.

We have the same date! We’re doing a fairly casual backyard thing so it’s probably going to be in the afternoon.

I’m doing an afternoon wedding so that I still have time and energy left on my wedding day to spend with my groom. Plus, lunch is cheaper, so you can splurge elsewhere while still getting really good food.

It really depends. As a guest, I wouldn’t care if a wedding started at noon or if it started at 6 p.m. Although I’d be annoyed if it started before noon.
If I had to BE in a wedding that started at noon, I’d be (secretly) very annoyed. My friend said she woke up at 4 a.m. for her 11 a.m. ceremony.
My family consists of a lot of night people and sleepers. They would never make it on time if I had a day wedding. While I wake up for work at 6 a.m., I certainly don’t look my freshest when I’m up at that hour.
Daytime weddings are usually more inexpensive so you have to do what works for you. FI and I worked hard to find a venue that’s inexpensive for a Saturday night.

We’re doing a little church wedding, no wedding party. I love the idea of an earlier wedding with brunch afterwards. I would also be a great plus for it being cheaper. And its not formal, dressed up yes, but my groom is wearing probably just dress pants and a dress shirt and we’re debating on the tie lol

I much prefer evening weddings, but I’d think about your family and friends and if they are more night owls or morning people?
