How to Time Your Summer Wedding Ceremony

How to Time Your Summer Wedding Ceremony


Summer weddings tend to be more popular than any other type of weddings! If you have chosen to tie the knot during this glorious season you will want to make sure your Big Day is in sync with the season 

Before you start planning out all of the tiny details there are some technicalities you should tackle first.  For example, have you thought about how to time your summer wedding?  There are some things you should be prepared to look at when creating the right schedule  

We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.  

  • Start with your venue’s end time. When you book a wedding venue, you book it for a given amount of time.  You will be given a start time (which includes set up) and an end time. Every venue has different rules when it comes to this, so be sure to discuss the matter with your venue manager. Once you know the end time, you can reverse-calculate when your wedding ceremony should take place.  Don’t forget to take into consideration the amount of time you would like to set aside for dancing, dining, cocktails and your ceremony.  
  • Planning an outdoor wedding? This will probably influence your ceremony timing, especially if weather is a concern. You cannot plan the weather, but you can control how your wedding flows according to it. For instance, you might be able to start the ceremony later in the afternoon, to avoid the middle of the day, when the sun burns brighter.  
  • Do you have special plans for the sunset? If you want your ceremony or reception to take place on the outdoors, and you would like the dancing to start as the sun sets, you will have to time this accordingly. In general, sun starts to set at different times during the summer months – so keep this in mind when planning!
