okay this might sound pretty silly but i’ve only been to a handful of weddings and even fewer than that which actually started on time.
i’m working this weekend on putting together a rough timeline of the day of.
i want to have a 2 o’clock wedding with a desserts reception afterwards. with that being said when i put on the invites at 2 o’clock does that mean that my guests arrive at 2 o’clock and like at 2:30 the ceremony starts or does it mean the ceremony starts at 2 o’clock and the guests better get there before then.
i’m thinking it’s the later but i have no idea really. thanks for your input

For my wedding, I am starting at 5 which means I am walking down the isle at 5. I’ve been to a few weddings before and the times that they put on the invitation was the time they walked down the isle. Hope this helps!

All of the weddings i’ve been to, the time on the invite is the time the ceremony starts.

I was thinking about this too! I’ve put on my invitations that tit is 3 so I was thinking are people going to show up at 3 or will they read it that the ceremony starts at 3… confusing! I’m assuming that people will be there early cos the’ll assume the ceremony starts at 3… might have to play it by ear! LOL

The time on the invitation is the ceremony time. MOST ceremonies will start 10 minutes or so late to wait for latecomers but if you’re adamant about starting on time make sure to communicate that.
