@blinx:  No way!  This will give you more picture time between the two events.  You could always see if the reception coordinator can give you an extra half hour to see if you can open those doors a bit earlier.  This could work out for you though, since most of your family will be neeced for the pictures any way.

Also – if your contract for the ceremony says 10:00am start – they can’t change that.  If your dead set on 10:00am – tell them oh well.  You have it in writing – they legally can’t make you change the time.  I would tell them you want a price reduction to even consider it.  (That’s the lawyer in me!)

I would say that 9:30 should work. It is a little early, but if I was a guest for your wedding I would be happy to get up early to see you get married 🙂 A half hour really doesn’t make a difference anyway.

Do you know how long your ceremony is going to be? It’s likely that it won’t take a full hour, either, so maybe you could still do 10 and be done a little before 11?

If you had your 10am before this person got an 11am..then you’re in the right…they can’t make you change your time.

I agree, check your contract.  There is no reason that, if it is in your contract to start at 10, you should be asked to start earlier.

If it is not in your contract, then I’d suggest moving everything a half hour earlier.

People will make it to your ceremony- I wouldn’t say “optional.” It is early, but if you have to change it (like other bees said, check your contract!), it’ll be fine.
