    I definitely wouldn’t want to attend a wedding and then come back a week later after the couple went on their honeymoon for a reception. I think that’s kind of asking a lot of your guests. I’m also of the mindset that the wedding is for the bride and groom and the reception is for your guests. They come to celebrate your love and in return you throw a fun party to thank them. Why do you have to have the reception later in the evening?

    @livelaughlove245:  Is something going on at the reception hall when you want it? Not sure why there’s a problem. I voted to have the reception somewhere else.

    Can you shorten the time frame between wedding and reception? People will want to attend a reception after the ceremony, not a week later or even a few hours later (if you can avoid a big delay).

    Honestly, I think you’ll lose half/most of your guests if you do it either way. I would try to follow the ceremony immediately with a reception.

    I think the best way is to have ceremony at the church, then reception somewhere else.  Isnt that how most weddings work?

    Do you have to have the wedding in the morning?  I also do not understand what the problem is…

    It’s pretty typical for religious weddings to have a gap between the ceremony and reception (a tad annoying, but expected), but not a WEEK long gap. The sooner together they can be the better…does your church onyl allow morning weddings? I know some are like this.
