South Carolina-Charleston

What time of day???

I am getting married in Charleston, SC at the end of July!  Our ceremony will be outdoors but under a covered pavilion with fans and our programs will serve as fans too while my reception is in a ballroom indoors. I thought about having a later time wedding like around 6 or 7 but then i thought about doing it early around 1 or 2.  I dont want my guest to suffer in the heat.  Our other problem is that we are only serving finger foods not a full sit down dinner or buffet so we dont want to serve our guest during a scheduled meal time. HELP!!

    Those both seem like meal times to me. Well, maybe not 2:00, but 6 and 7 definitely are, and 1:00 is pushing it in my opinion. How long are you planning on your ceremony being? I'd probably go for 2:00 and try to keep it short. It might be a nice gesture to make sure water bottles are available either way, because it's going to be hot for sure.

    I agree with Manda - 2:00 is your best option if you're trying to avoid a full meal service. But definitely have fans, water, etc. for your guests. It's going to be REALLY warm in July.

    HTH! :)

    I am wanting an early wedding but i just dont want to burn up my guest.  I thought about the water bottle idea!  Our ceremony will defintely be very short maybe 20 minutes tops we would rather spend more time on our reception.

    Yeah, 20 minutes isn't so bad. Sounds like you're going to make sure everyone is well supplied to keep themselves cool, too. So I'd say 2:00 is your best bet!
