    I wanted to do a sunrise wedding but I was overruled.

    I have been to many afternoon tea weddings and they are one of my favorite kinds. There are many perks: earlier honeymoon :p, no kids whining because it is late, lighter food, more time for visiting, more dessert choices (this is a must or I am not coming LOL), less lag time between ceremony and reception.

    I didn’t have a daytime wedding YET, but my ceremony next year will start at 12:30pm or 1. Sometimes I wonder if we should have gone for an evening wedding, but I’m glad we’re not. With the afternoon, we have cheaper vendors (because they can still work a wedding later that night), we won’t have to rush to get out and head to the hotel while dead tired, and I don’t want to have to wait all day to be married! Also, Fiance family lives 1.5 hours away, so it allows time to travel back that doesn’t make them leave the reception early or get home at midnight.


    But I definitely agree with you about the Vegas stuff!

    You might want to bump this post to a more general board, like “receptions” or “recaps.”  I think that because this is a local board, there’s less traffic.

    More brides who have already had their weddings (daytime or otherwise) might be patrolling the recap board- so you’ll get more responses!

    That being said, I think that you could compromise: have your afternoon wedding, which I’m sure will be absolutely lovely, and then get bottle service at a nightclub and invite your guests.  That way you get alone time with your new husband, maybe even a private dinner, and then later on the party can continue for those who are up for it!

    Hope this helps, good luck!

    I went to an afternoon wedding last year, I loved the venue but hated the fact that we had to leave after 3 hours…the partying afterwards was horrible…staying at the venue would have been best.
