I’d probably want to be at the church by 1:15 if I were you because your guests will start arriving at 1:30 and you don’t really want everyone to see you.  So that would mean leaving at 1pm, which is what time the limo should be there (or 12:45 to be safe) And I would count back from there.

I think this all depends on what you are doing to get ready?  Having your hair done at home?  Is everyone doing their own hair and makeup?  Are all pictures afterwards?

I like to be on the safe side…so I would have the guys meet at 11 am, but no later than noon.

depending how long it takes for all of you to get ready.   i would say have them come to your house for 12.  Have the photographer come at around 12:45.  that way you have time to just chill too and not rush.  have the limo pick you up at 1:25, leave your house in the limo at 1:30, that way you are giving yourself an extra 10 minutes… better to be early then late. 

I would have the guys be at the church for 12:45 – 1:00  … are they also going to be greeting people though or ushering??

I would ask the limo to come for like 1:15 that gives you plenty of time to get organized getting into the limo and get there.
I’d have the boys be at the church by 1:30.

Are you all getting your hair/makeup done in the morning? I think i’ve read to anticipate 30min per person for makeup and 30 min for hair.. so depending how many of you have doing this and such…. and then plan photog accordingly. make sense?

Then again…. i didn’t get married in a church, so i don’t know if that is different.  Is there a room there for you to hang out in before the ceremony?  do you want to hang out at the church for an hour before the ceremony?  haha  i don’t know.

are you have a photographer? And if so, are they photographing you all getting ready?

I just talked to mine yesterday, and we will be starting Pre Ceremony Pictures at 11:30. Our wedding is also at 2pm. So I am having my Bridesmaids arrive at the church and take ‘getting ready’ pictures at 11:00. (I will already have my hair and makeup done). Same goes with FIs groomsmen, they will arrive at the church at 11:00 for ‘getting ready pictures’
