What Time Of Day Do People Get Married?

Wedding times can vary greatly depending on the couple’s preferences, their cultural traditions, and the type of wedding they’re planning. However, in many Western cultures, weddings occur in the late morning, early afternoon, or evening. Here are some typical times:

  1. Morning Weddings: These often start between 10:00 and 11:00 AM. A brunch or lunch reception usually follows morning weddings.
  2. Afternoon Weddings: These usually begin between 1:00 and 3:00 PM. A late lunch or early dinner reception might follow afternoon weddings.
  3. Evening Weddings: These commonly start between 5:00 and 7:00 PM, allowing the ceremony to transition seamlessly into an evening dinner reception.

Remember, these times can be flexible and should suit the couple’s desires and the overall structure of their wedding day. The venue, availability of guests, lighting (especially for photography), and budget can all influence the wedding time. Communicate with your venue, planner, and vendors to choose the best time for your specific situation.
