Our ceremony is at 6.15pm (right at sunset), indoor but with a large window behind us. We’re doing all our pictures before the ceremony because of the daylight issue. Would you consider first look pictures or no? I think a lot of people don’t care for the idea, but it does seem to help with issues like this.

My ceremony is at 3PM.  It’s outside in Future In-Laws backyard so we didn’t want to have it too late.

Our ceremony is at 4:30 outside. We have lounge furniture in our tent that looks out at the sunset so I’m hoping that will get taken advantage of.

My wedding is at 4:30pm in a church. It was either that or 1pm and I prefer late afternoon and evening affairs. I want to do the pictures before hand because logistically it makes sense. Plus both of my sisters did it that way and it really lessened the stress. I had never heard of taking a first look picture but I really like that idea to help keep the moment special. My Fiance doesn’t agree though and wants all the pictures taken after (we haven’t come to a decision yet). Have you thought about taking  all the seperate pictures (just you, your Bridal Party, and parents or whoever) before hand and then photos with both you and your Fiance after so it won’t take as long and you can make the best of what light you have if you choose to have it later in the day?

We decided on 6:00pm start time for our outdoor ceremony and reception for several reasons. (Sunset on the day of is supposed to be 7:25pm.)

We want it to be bright out without worring about the mid-day or afternoon sun beating down on everyone. Hopefully the evening will cool down nicely. Also, we’re going to do bride/groom/immediate family pictures before the wedding to take advantage of the light. This, along with our short ceremony will hopefully allow us plenty of time to get pictures with our extended family and friends before dinner.

My ceremony time starts at 4:30pm. I may not be much help because my wedding is after the daylight savings time where time will move back an hr so my 4:30 wedding will look like 5:30pm outside. We’re starting the ceremony a little before the sunset time (which is 5:17pm according to http://www.sunrisesunset.com). I want just Fiance and me to take the sunset pics. The bridal party (FI with his Groomsmen and fam and me with my BMs and family) are taking pics before the ceremony.

I’m no help either. We’re getting married at 1pm in an ice arena. However, we were originally going to have an outside sunset beach wedding.

I wanted to get married at sunset, but we’re getting married the first day of fall and the sun won’t set until 7:00. I feel like that’s pretty late. We’re getting married at 5:00 instead, but the sky will still look great.

Still wish I was getting married in front of this, though.
