I need to vent/rant and if anyone has any knowledge or advice i would greatly appreciate it! So I planned my wedding on Sunday November 4th 2018 this year not knowing until a handful of things were booked (photographer, venue, officant, etc.) that it was daylihgt savings day where we would turn the clocks back an hour. Which initally I though “oh, cool, well an extra hour to get ready and not a big deal we’ll just schedule the 30ish minute ceremony around 4:00pm then that will leave enough daylight afterwards for photos then we party for 3 hours and it ends around 8:30 which is a good time for a Sunday night for eveyrone to get home and prepare for the weekday. BUT NOW florida government decides they may want to make daylight savings a permanent thing where we’re keeping the daylight longer and we wouldnt change the clocks back an hour in the fall on this day. That would completely screw up the timing of the ceremony and ending time of the reception! Does anyone know if these people wanting to screw with the times have made a decision if we’re keeping the time as is permantley now or if we are keeping it as it has been for years and years and chaning the clocks back on Nov. 4th?? I have had to call all the people i have booked with and say hold up we need a TBA time for now.
I mean if i still did a 4pm afternoon ceremony no matter what i would still have daylight but i just worry about it being too bright for photos and everyone will be squinting from the sun. I wanted close to sunset photos as that is considered the ‘golden hour’ for photography. God! Wedding planning stresses!!!
