What is the best time of the day to get married?
When it comes to the time of the day to have your wedding ceremony, most couples choose a time between 11 am and 1 pm. Historically, these have been the most popular times for wedding ceremonies.
Many choose the most popular time for a wedding which is generally a Saturday evening, but there is no hard and fast rule saying you can’t get married at other times or even days of the week. In fact, considering alternative times can actually save you a good amount of money.
Kick off a weekend of celebration with a daytime wedding instead of waiting until 6 pm!
Morning weddings have grown in popularity and can start at around 10 am, which can be ideal and be more relaxed atmosphere for the wedding party.
Having breakfast or rather a brunch meal, after having exchanged wedding vows can be just as delicious.
Below, are some suggestions that our Granny Mouse Country House & Spa culinary artists have conjured up for your special morning celebration:
Some great breakfast serve ups can include spinach omelet, eggs in spicy tomato sauce, fried eggs with truffles, scrambled eggs with chorizo, eggs benedict, and even Italian egg sandwiches with some mimosas and Bloody Marys to wash it down.
A brunch or breakfast wedding also provides you with your entire day to mingle and doesn’t have a limit on time and traditions and also if guests are driving after the proceedings they don’t have to leave late at night and especially with Covid 19 curfew regulations, this alleviates the stress for the guests who may not be staying over with you.
The time also allows you more flexibility on taking photos and using good light and you also get time to do some afternoon and even evening shots to include for the album capturing all the memories of your wedding day.
Whether you go for a quick continental breakfast or a full-blown brunch spread, serving breakfast food at your wedding is always going to be cheaper than an afternoon tea (late lunch) or dinner menu.
The biggest cost is the bar bill, and that is sure to be way cheaper even if you can afford an open bar.
The final pro is that you won’t be as tired, as this wedding time tends to be a little more relaxed and you get to spend part of your wedding day with your new spouse and to top it all off, you can stay that little longer in the Granny Mouse honeymoon suite!
