@Jenoalee:  Ok, Latina (Mexican-American) bride here. The only thing that pops out at me, is that you’ll want to allow much longer at the church, after ceremony for pictures. Guests like to take pictures right at the church door and i’ve seen this take around 30 minutes to an hour (depends on how many guests). 

 

I’ve never heard of clean up afterwards, or who does it. I guess usually venues take care of it? If not, I’d assume closest family would deal with it. 

 

I can’t generalize on how much dancing is appropriate, but weddings / dancing part of it, will go as late as possible (i.e. it’s not unusual for evening weddings to go until the next morning) , especially if people are having a good time. 

 

I think you need to figure out what works best for both for your family and stick to it. Guests should be nice enough to abide by your event parameters. If you try to please everybody you’ll just be asking for major stress.

Well, that’s more like an early dinner no? It depends on your guests. if the ceremony is at 1, and I was a guest, I’d definitely eat just before it so as to not have to wait too much.
