i think you should ask yourself if your guests would mind go in so late! do they have children or work next day? also have plan b for the weather, you never know!


good luck and congrats!

My ceremony won’t start until, 7pm, that’s only one hour earlier than 8. And it will last til midight, same as mine. I don’t think it’s a big deal at all!  When people go out on the weekends, most time they don’t walk out the door until 8 or 9 anyways. 8 will give people time to eat dinner at home, or out at a restaurant and head over afterwards, plus it’s on a YACHT! That sounds so cool.  I say go for it!

I don’t think this is a prob at all. Just make sure guests know to eat dinner before they come and you should be fine. Personally, I would skip the favors. Sounds like a great wedding!

I think it sounds really nice! I’d just make sure there’s enough food to cover the alcohol that will be consumed…if you know what i mean.

And if you’re on a budget, skip the favors.

I like that idea.  It would be obvious to people that they need to eat before they come, the sunset would be gorgeous, and then the rest of the reception (dancing, drinks, party trays, etc.) will be like any other reception.

I think that’s beautiful! I went to a 7pm sunset wedding last summer with hors d’oeuvres and dancing afterwards…it was lovely. No one expected a full meal because the word was spread beforehand. Everyone just ate before the wedding.
