Our alone time will be after the reception when our guests go home for the night! I think it’s tough for you to get an hour of alone time in the middle of the day unless you are providing some sort of activity for your guests (cocktail hour, city tour, something like that).

Are you trying to schedule the alone time between pictures and setting sail?  If so, why don’t you just leave whatever location you are at and have people meet up at the dock where you’ll be sailing.  If there is a place by the sailing point guests can gather and mingle, that would be ideal.

Our alone time was after the ceremony, during cocktail hour – when we were with our photog.

I’m seriously considering a morning ceremony, so that we can have the afternoon to do things together. I’d hate to barely see my own husband on our wedding day.

we are leaving the ceremony alone in a 47 cadillac limo and then doing pictures alone for about 20 mins then pictures with wedding party, then leaving to the reception alone again in 47 limo. i thought about that too, im having a huge wedding against my wishes and i dont do “very” well in crowds, so this is my “take a deep breath” time. ill even arrive to the ceremony alone, just to give myself time to have absolute quiet and take a few deep breaths before saying “i do”

We’ve rented a Rolls Royce to take us home after. We got it for 2 hours, so we’re going to take a ride, have some champagne, and just enjoy each other.

ETA: Now that I’ve finished reading your post, I’m concerned that you may be overestimating the amount of spare time you’ll have between pictures and sailing. If you think they’ll take a certain amount of time, add another hour. For some reason, every wedding I’ve ever been in has gone over on the pictures.

If you’re only doing bride and groom pictures, maybe an hour to an hour and a half? Obviously more if you’re doing bridal party/family pictures too.

We didn’t have any alone time.. we spent the majority of our wedding mingling with our families.

We have the next 3 weeks purely alone together so we just enjoyed our wedding with our family and friends.
