We’re aiming to be done with our Sunday wedding around 6:30 or 7pm. We probably won’t leave until 8 or so, but all the “main events” (minus send-off) will be done by 6:30 so people won’t feel bad leaving.

My Sunday wedding ended at 11:00.  That’s probably my latest, too. I can handle being a little tired at work on Monday if I’m having a really great time.

We’re getting married on a Sunday – Halloween Tongue out  Our wedding falls under the ‘destination’ category b/c there are only 8 (including me and FH) people from WA and everyone else is flying into town – – thus – – our Sunday wedding is beginning at 5pm and ending at 11pm, or soon after Laughing

7:00 or 8:00; I’d want to be showered by 9:00 and in bed before 10:00. I’m in the office at 7am, though, sometimes 6:30.

Until it was over, ha! I would have no problem partying until 11pm, 12 am or later. (and I work a 9-5 job)

It would depend on:

1) how far away I lived and if I had to work the next day

2) my work schedule the next day

3) if I had to worry with a babysitter for my kids (would i have to get them at a certain time/be home by a certain time or if they were staying over at a grandparents…)

4) traffic

It would also depend on how late YOU and YOUR FI want to stay up! 

(We’re having a Saturday wedding, but since most of our friends will probably be staying over, it’ll run till REALLY late, lol.  However, if it weren’t for that, we’d be ending it early for some “us” time. 😉 )

Also, consider when you want to leave for your honeymoon.  If you’re having one. 

 (we won’t, since we have two kids.  We’ll probably take ours during the summer when we can leave the munchkins with one set of grandparents or the other.)

For me it would depend on how far away I lived from the venue.  If it is close, maybe 9 or 10.  A longer haul, maybe 7 or 8 – I hate driving far when I’m beat from partying hard.  🙂

It would totally depend on how close I was to the couple, and what the deal was for Monday. I normally work from home on Mondays, so I’d probably be more flexible abound Sundays, and if I was close to the couple, I’d suck it up no matter what and stay until it’s over. My Sunday wedding ended at 12:15am and while a bunch of people left in the 10-11 range, there was a good number of people by the end. It was perfect, because we were sent off by our closest family and friends.
