Saturday night (late March) at 7:15PM.  Our (reform) cantor checked sundown and all and she was OK starting a little early.

@Day_In_The_Life:  Hehe, makes sense that this is the thread I’d run into a date twin.  Holiday weekend Sunday ftw!

cocktails at 5h30

Ceremony at 7pm

We are modern Orthodox so a saturday wedding was totally out of the question.

My Fiance is reform and our wedding is Saturday evening with ceremony beginning at 6pm. We had no problems getting a rabbi. We are not getting married in a synagogue though.

First wedding was Sunday morning, with a lunch following.  Second was Tuesday at noon.  (The timing of the second one was affected by the machinations we had to go through to get around the three-day waiting period in Massachusetts, at a time when our home state didn’t have same-sex marriage.)

Mine starts on Sunday late afternoon/early evening, but it’s the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend.

We’re very reform, but I just don’t feel right doing a Saturday wedding. The holiday weekend was a good compromise.

Sunday from 6pm to midnite. We will have a lot of guests who will be calling out sick on Monday! lol

We’re actually trying to move it from 5pm to 11pm to accomodate our guests a little more!

Tentatively Sunday at 6.

Been to jewish wedding on Saturday and Sundays and as nice as a Saturday wedding is we had WAY too many issues coming up with orthodox relatives and getting the Rabbi to do it at that time and this and that. Sunday just makes more sense for us.

May 19th (which is a Sunday) at 6:30 – 12:30

Although its not a long weekend here in the US, we have a TON of people traveling from Canada (all of my fiancees family is from there)..and its a long weekend there, so they will have time to travel back on Monday.

We’re thinking Sunday 18th August. 90% of our guests will be from Australia, Israel and a couple from out of state in the US so everyone is on holidays to come for the wedding anyway *shrug* 

I wanted a Tuesday wedding because apparently it is more auspicious but i don’t think my husband will go for it.
