If you had a gap – did your ceremony & reception attendance vary?

I would assume that, but with a gap I’ve noticed that some people just skip the cermeony and go the reception. I think those that RSVP yes plan to attend at least the reception and more than likely the ceremony.

We had one ellderly man tell us when he rsvp’d that he would likely only be at the ceremony. We left an extra seat near people he knew just in case, buthe did end up leaving during the gap. I think that there were 2 other people who left in between as well, but i’m not sure if they ever came or if their sons just brought their present.

Also if your reception is at a brewery, I assume that your relatives will figure out that they can’t bring their kids. It just makes sense that they wouldn’t be allowed there.

StL.Ashley:  Your guests should definitely get the hint. We had a later wedding at a winery and no kids showed up, woo! I had some people not go to the reception after the ceremony, which surprised me. Most people did go to both, and usually when they RSVP it implies for the whole wedding, which was mostly true for us minus a few people. However, we had our ceremony and reception at the same venue so that was surprising to see people leave after the ceremony when the reception was RIGHT there. People are silly.
