We are having a Friday wedding, ceremony starting at 5PM, reception ending at 11pm. We’re hoping mostly everyone we RSVPs yes attends both the ceremony and reception, and arrives on time… to not arrive on time would be tacky! We shall see… eek!

We have attended a handful of Fridayn ceremonies over the past year.  I would say roughly half of the people at the reception were at the ceremony.  Sadly people see it as optional and don’t want to “waste” a day off for a wedding.  If the ceremony is at 6 versus 5 you probably would have more people in attendance too.

We had a different situation with our ceremony on friday but our reception on Saturday.  Also we didn’t invite everyone to the ceremony since we wanted it to be very private/family only.  But out of the people that were invited, pretty much everyone that we expected showed up.  It ended up being 37 out of 45 invited.  🙂
