Wedding tradition and wedding options can be confusing for couples who want to do things differently – but if you’re in love with the idea of a daytime wedding, you will definitely come to realize there’s absolutely no reason not to have one. They’re less expensive, they’re fun, they’re classy, and they can definitely help you create unforgettable memories!

How to plan a daytime wedding? Here are the absolute basics to keep in mind.

  • Yes, you will have to wake up earlier, at about 6 am (since your wedding will start at 11 am). However, the great news is that you can actually spend your evening napping, taking advantage of the hotel spa, or simply spending time with your (now) spouse.
  • You shouldn’t serve heavy foods during a daytime wedding, particularly because it will most likely be around lunch time. A luncheon will be perfect as a seated meal, but if you want to, you can also serve a brunch buffet with a variety of delicious foods.
  • As the bride, you can dress however you want. However, the other guests will dress according to the dress code – and yes, it can be formal or informal as well. Keep in mind: a formal day wedding is not as glamorous as a formal evening wedding!
  • You are totally allowed to serve drinks – but our advice is to stick to lighter wines, rather than liqueur. It is quite unlikely that people will consume a lot of alcohol given the circumstances, so this is perfect if you want to limit the alcohol (or not serve it at all).
