Our wedding is going to be on a Sunday from about 4-8/9, we love that we are saving time (in turn money), still having a great time to do everything and still have a great night to spend together on our wedding night! =) We are doing it December in Laguna Beach!  Make the best of it! It would be great if you could do some pre-pics. We are doing First Looks and Pre-Family Formals before the ceremony to save time to enjoy our company and venue!

My wedding is a Sunday and it will be 4:30-10pm.. but its during the summer and the majority of my guests will be on vacation, are teachers, are students, or are self employeds so I guess my situation is different.

Can you ask the venue if it’s possible for you to come in an hour or two earlier? Another thing is to hire a wedding coordinator so that YOU don’t have to do the set up yourself. I too am having a Sunday wedding but since it’s a holiday weekend, I’m not too bothered.

My wedding is on a Sunday from 4:30 to 10:00, but that’s the norm around here.  In fact, Saturday weddings are becoming increasingly uncommon amongst locals in this area, since it’s so expensive to have a wedding in wine country.  

I’d call and ask if they’d allow you to show up a couple hours early to set up or do pictures, or maybe even the day before to set up?

I’m confused are you referring to your ceremony venue or the reception venue? Ours is on sunday too, the ceremony starts around 3.30pm and the reception is from 6-11pm. But our reception venue allows us to enter as early as 6am that morning! so we have plenty of time to set up

we had a sunday wedding at 4pm.  Check to make sure even though its’ not open until 4pm that you can’t get in earlier – normally places open before so that things get set up for the day and vendors can arrive and be ready if your ceremony or reception starts at 4pm.  Just ask to see what other people normally do!!!  It’s simple enough and a coordinator will be able to tell you what other couples typically do.  Don’t worry too much since it’s your wedding and people WILL want to stay!  Don’t try to drag it out too late since it is a sunday but 9-10pm is plenty good!
