We have a Friday wedding starting at 4pm with a reception at 6pm. We thought having it on a Friday would deter people from coming, but its actually been the opposite.

originally we were going to have it in the evening but now we’re going to do it at 3pm because we want to have a sort of “backyard bbq/family reunion” atmoshphere and we’ll be putting out lawn games like croquet to play. I’m a little worried people won’t come, but we decided we have to do what we want to and if people don’t come then that’s on them…

Because our wedding is a week after daylight savings time, we will be having our ceremony at 3:30pm. It’s only a half hour, and then we will have a solid hour of photos before the sun goes down. 🙂

We are having our ceremony at 6:30 with reception beginning immediatley after.  There will be no cocktail hour and we are doing pictures prior to the ceremony.  When everything starts we might as well just keep on going right into having a good time with our guests.

I’m not getting married on Friday, but another bride is at my venue.. which means some shuffling for the rehearsal dinner. No problem though 🙂 She is getting married at 7pm.
