    We had ceremony at 6PM (Friday wedding), cocktail hour at 6:30, reception started around 7:15, with meal served around 7:30. We had the venue until 11, and had an after party at the hotel bar. Was plenty of time for dancing- DH and I opened the reception with our first dance, then we did parent dances around 8, I think.

    @sleepyhead22:   I’m finally making some progress, FI is helping me plan otherwise I’d be way behind!  lol   We just chose our florist and DJ.  *whew*

    Now we have to buy our rings (we chose them, just haven’t pulled the trigger yet).

    Mostly I need to diet!!!!!  Hard to get out and exercise when it’s all snow around here.  

    I think your new plan sounds great.  Having the sunset photos will be terrific, not to mention the extra hour of rest!  🙂

    Ours is a Sunday, so we are starting earlier, but I like your second choice for the timeline!!
