The original plan was to get married on Friday, stay & help clean up and leave early Saturday morning for the beach...well I'm now having to move the wedding to Saturday and also leave for the beach on saturday. I'm not sure what time to have the wedding now.
1. I must have enought time to go have my hair styled.
2. the photographer says she likes to start pics 2 hours before the wedding.
3. Our honeymoon is 6 1/2 hours away & I'd like to get there before dark.

4. We're only having finger foods, is it wrong to have it at lunch time, with no meal?
5. Also, we'd be paying for Saturday and not actually being there for it.

The beach rental office said they could set us up with a lockbox so we can get in, but I want to make sure we're in the right place & would feel much better about it if it was daylight.
My fiance has a really bad sense of direction and I don't want  to be lost at night with no place to stay.
This date is about the only one we can have our wedding and our beach rental will be from Saturday to Saturday only.

Does anyone have suggestions?

can you provide more details?  this would help plan.  I would also give yourself 7 hours to drive.  saying goodbye could also take longer than expected.

--what time the sun sets in your area, or where the beach is? 
--what time of the year might also make a difference. 

i.e. In Minnesota in July the sun sets at 10 p.m.  In Minnesota in December the sun sets at 4:15 p.m.  Of course, you wouldn't be visiting a Minnesota beach in December... hee hee!! Smiley

i think starting the ceremony at about 1-ish would be a good time... by the time the reception started it would be after "lunch", and thus a good time for appetizers or finger foods.  also, it would probably give you enough time to get to your honeymoon spot afterward, and definitely give you enough time to get your hair and pics done beforehand.

i care about you a homemade oven mitt's worth.

the wedding will be in may. since work is preventing us from having it on Friday the 23rd. i think i've actually just changed the plans, to having it the next friday, which would be the 30th. this way we can have time to clean up & stuff. then we will be leaving early saturday morning to head to the beach in charleston, sc. I just don't see getting there after dark saturday night , since we'll be paying for saturday, i'd like to atleast speend half of the day saturday in our rental condo.
