- Wedding: November 2013 - St. Augustine Beach, FL
I just realized something really cool and random about my wedding date, November 2, 2013. Anybody?
It’s the night when the clocks roll back ending Daylight Savings Time. Why is this a good thing? It means the local bars (i.e. my reception after party) will stay open an extra hour since when the clock strikes 2am that night, the clocks will roll back to 1am. Not allowed to serve alcohol in my area after 2am.
Why else is this cool for me personally? Oddly enough when I got married the first time it was on March 10, 2007, which was the start of Daylight Savings Time for that year. That meant my reception had to end by 1am because at 1am the clocks rolled forward to 2am and the bar could no longer serve alcohol. Maybe that forshadowed the demise of that particular marriage. Who knows?
I can’t wait to tell FH because he really wants the extra time to after party in the local historic district after the reception.

@beachbride1216: That’s so cool! Also, so weird about the Daylight Savings weddings you’ve had! What a coincidence!

@beachbride1216: my wedding also fell on daylight savings time. i loved it because it meant we got to sleep an extra hour! Our after party was at the hotel. Darling Husband and I did not attend but all of our guests did! So I’m sure they enjoyed it as well

DST is such a strange thing! Just a warning, though- around here most bars won’t insert that extra hour of DST- make sure wherever you go will!

When I was looking at the calendar I noticed the same thing and I love it! “Fall back” always makes me happy and this time we get that “extra” hour to start off our marriage with a bonus 🙂
And, yeah, it’ll probably mean an extra hour of sleep, but I’m SO not complaining about that.
Just remember to include something in your programs, etc. to remind your guests about the time change. Anyone heading out on Sunday will need to be aware of it!

Haha, how funny! I would love to attend a wedding that night — it’s one of my favorite nights of the year when I get an extra hour of fun. Or an extra hour of sleep, however you look at it. 🙂

@thirdtimebride: SUCH a good idea to remind your guests about the time change! I actually TOTALLY forgot that our wedding date falls on this day 🙂
Yay for November 2nd!!
I know the bar times won’t change for our venue, but at the very least I’m super happy I’ll get an extra hour of “sleep” that night 😉

Mine fell of the fall back. we had the venue till 12 so it didn’t make a difference ( although the bar stayed open all hours anyway) but it was so nice to have the extra hour in bed. Especially since i had been awake since 3am on my wedding day and went to bed about 2am!! Crazy long day. I went on my honeymoon the next day to so it was much appreciated 🙂

Hello other 11/2 date twins!
Our hotel is in NY and the bar is open until 4 a.m. on Saturdays. I think DST is going to be trouble!!! lol 🙂
