@SummerBird:  You could also make arrangements for your guests to park at a nearby parking lot and (arrangements with the owner of the lot to get permission) and provide a shuttle to the home.

Hi @SummerBird:  As this is your DEBUT Post on WBee… a BIG Welcome to “the Hive”

“Etiquette Snob here… lol” in so much as I have a lot of Traditional & Modern Etiquette knowledge.

You are basically organizing what one would call An Open House… at some point after your Wedding Ceremony which will be private (correct ?)

In which case, you can either stagger the Invitation time if you like as you have suggested or you can put on the Invite that it is an Open House from 2 to 6 PM (for example)

When there is an Open House, people tend to come anywhere within that timeframe… altho it is true that the majority of folks will probably come earlier then later.

As for Parking… I do like the idea that @julies1949: mentioned in Reply # 2

Hope this helps,
