In the foggy months the best time of day in near 1 pm. This allows time for the fog to roll back.
Evening wedding offer the strongest winds and sunset weddings only give you about 15 minutes of light to shoot wedding photography in sweet light and then the full flash is used. If you have selected the outdoors for the beauty you may want to see it.

Avoid pitfalls by planning for them. Planning can make all the difference. Plan for sweet memories. Plan your attire to provide you comfort and ease but start your wedding planning by selecting your time of day.
