I think it could potentially work, but you’d need to talk to your venue about how late your wedding can run and be aware that some guests may leave early if they’re not in a late night party kind of mood. I’d also suggest planning to get a lot of your pictures done before dark. If you want lots of photos of the ceremony, they may not come out that well in low light. Just some things to think about.

My cousin is getting married on June 25th and her ceremony starts at 7 in the outdoor gardens of the venue. It’s so pretty at night. Then she’s having a cocktail style reception starting at 8. It can be done.

I had a friend that got married and had her reception in a similar place… The used so ways to bring in a little extra lighting ie. candle light and then I think a String of ligths around a patio area and all her pics came out GREAT! it looked beautiful.

i think it owuld look great, very romantic and cozy, my only concern would be about pictures. Would you take some day time ones too?

Here are some pcis of some night time weddings to show what i am worried about.

Do you know what i mean? you lose the groomsmen..heck you lose the GROOM. Im sure a great photographer could correct this though….

I love the idea, I think it can be done for sure.  If you are having a full dinner reception you may want to cut or do away with cocktail hour and just start with announcements.  You may want to do photos prior to ceremony if you are up for that.  If not, I’d make sure you meet with your photographer and become on the same page for your timing/expectations. I think it just takes more planning and time conscious for the evening.

A night wedding is a great idea.  I think it would be beautiful, romantic and cozy.  You won’t have to worry about the gap between ceremony and reception that many brides worry about.  I think the main things you have to worry about are 1) what time it will actually be dark outside in late June where you live and 2) how late your venue will let you stay.
