Morning Weddings Are a Big Thing Now – Here’s Why

More couples are opting to celebrate their weddings in the morning.

This year’s expected wedding boom means there are a shortage of prime time slots available at venues; so some are choosing to get an early start on their special day.

Also, some couples want to extend the party time.  Sandy Pena, a wedding planner explains, “They want to celebrate all day long rather than just in the evening.  There was a time when couples only wanted evening ceremonies, [but] many have waited one or two years to get married.  Now they don’t care what time it happens, they just want to get married.”

She adds that she’s working on about 70 nuptials, just for this year, and that “more than 90 percent” are planned to be celebrate before 4 p.m.

Pena says that morning weddings offer great natural lighting for photos.

They can offer a more intimate ambience, in part, because venues can be less strict about required capacity.  And they allow for less formal attire.

Morning weddings can also be less expensive.
