    Don’t be upset! Sunday weddings may not be drunken “party til dawn” events, but people will still have an amazing time. Spend a little more time figuring out your timeline so that if some guests leave a little earlier, all your “must-have” moments will have happened (for example, you could have your first dance when you first enter the reception, before dinner is served, or cut your cake as dinner is finishing. On the DST issue, put a note in the invitations reminding everyone (ie ‘don’t be late! Remember DST starts/ends today’ with a little clock picture or something). I’m a little confused on that point as it looks like your wedding is next march? If it is really this fall and invites have gone out, you could always send a little postcard to guests the week before. Good luck!

    Could you do an earlier in the day wedding? Most people will have to work on Monday so they won’t ant to stay out late. If you did your wedding and reception earlier in the day it shouldn’t be much of an issue unless a lot of your guests are traveling. I don’t think that most people will have trouble remembering about daylight savings time.

    OK I see from an earlier post you’re in NZ. So it’s the end of summer, everyone’s clock goes back, so everyone gets an hour extra sleep the night before or gets up early. The good news is no one will come late for your wedding, but a few might come an hour early :). It might be wise to put a reminder on the invitations though.

    Because it’s the end of daylight saving, I think you can get away with having the wedding an hour earlier than you would otherwise. So if you were planning a 3pm wedding, consider doing 2pm instead. Everyone will probably get up early, so will be having an early lunch, so a 2pm wedding would be no problem. Also it leaves more daylight for your photos.

    You’ll be fine. Don’t change your date. But consider doing it all an hour earlier.

    Since daylight savings goes into affect late Saturday night/early Sun morning…most people should be reset and good to go by the time your wedding evening approaches.

    Is your date the 30th or the 31st? Because Sunday is the 31st, not the 30th in 2013.

    Also, I realized that your date is Easter Sunday. That may not be an issue at all but have you talked to your guests about it?

    @blueskies7:  you’re right about Easter, but daylight saving in NZ ends on Sunday April 7, 2013, as far as I can tell. OP, is April 7 your wedding date?

    Just make sure that you communicate to a core group of people that you would really appreciate them staying the full time. Some guests may leave, but your girlfriends and close family can party all night 🙂

    We married on a Sunday and it was great!! Nobody left early!! Sure, the party ended about midnight and that was enough. We left for our honeimoon the next morning and i know a couple of people took minday off to rest but most went straight back to work. Also, as it was in June we had plenty of light!!
