Why not? It’s your wedding. Sounds great! I probably wouldn’t drink much, if at all, during the day but that’s not to say I wouldn’t enjoy myself.

In the UK, most weddings are in the morning.  We were actually originally planning to have ours at 10 am, but with an evening reception.  We moved it to 1pm to cut costs, so we don’t have to cater a lunch and a dinner.

I had a 10:30 wedding! Just make sure you get to the ceremony location REALLY early! I got there an hour early, and still walked down the aisle 25 minutes late!

@GingerSnap201 Yes, I think it is enough time.  When I said I wouldn’t drink much, I meant me as a guest – I wasn’t trying to suggest how much you should or should not drink. 🙂

At least from my experience, daytime reception = less drinking, leads to less dancing = shorter a reception. Again, that’s just from what I have seen. In no way is that a bad thing. I think you could do a really elegant lunch / brunch buffet and serve mimosas if you want to offer alcohol. So yes, I think that is enough time for guests. Hope that clears up what I meant. 🙂
