(Closed) August Outdoor Wedding Start Time:

  • poll: What time should an outdoor wedding start in August?

    4:30 - Just pass out fans and water bottles and the guests won't even notice

    5:00 -5:30 Make a comprimise, the ceremony is only going to be 20 mins anyway

    6:00 - It's way to stinking hot to be outside in the middle of the day in August

    We’re starting at 2:30 to enable us to have enough time for a cocktail hour before heading to dinner at another location.  Average temperature on the lake should be in the mid 70s so that’s not too bad right? 

    I’m actually more worried that people won’t be prepared for the cooler evenings!

    Our outdoor ceremony is at 7pm. I thought that was too late at first, until I realized how hot it was likely to be during the day. Plus, it’s an hour before sunset, which will be perfect for photos! 🙂 Anyway, we’re not doing anything for our guests for the heat, because it should be comfortable by then (I hope!).

    Ours started at 7 pm, but I wanted an early evening wedding, plus we only had a simple reception afterwards because of the HUGE casual pig roast we had the next day!

    We are having our ceremony at 6:30. I wanted it at 7:30 and my Fiance wanted it 5:30, so we compromised. We planned the ceremony where all the guests would be seated in the shade and we’re offering programs as fans and water beforehand. We want a short cermemony (15-20 min. max) and reception directly following. We have to have the music off at 11:00 so I’m trying to reassure my fiance that this will leave plenty of party time.

    Our ceremony is on a Sunday by the beach, so i’m hoping their will be a nice ocean breeze to cool everyone down.

    That being said, the ceremony will hopefully start at 4:30. One of my bridesmaids has to catch a flight so she’ll have t leave at 6:30 and that is also why we are having an earlier ceremony.

    Reception starts at 7:30.
