I’m trying to figure out what time the ceremony should begin. I’m probably making this more complicated than it is.
What I only know so far is the reception HAS TO be 6-9
Dinner starts at 7.
Cocktail hour starts around 6 (its in a historical museum and guests can tour part of it during this time so they shouldn’t be too bored if kept waiting)
I believe we were told guests can’t start arriving at the reception location before 5:30 – I need to double check this
Its about a 10 min drive to get from the ceremony location to the reception
We’d like plenty of time for pictures between the ceremony and reception. We’ll take some with the wedding party, but we’d like most of just the 2 of us.
The ceremony shouldn’t last more than 30 mins
So, what time should our ceremony be? We’re thinking about 4:30?
We wont have exclusive use of the property for the ceremony (which is also a historic site/museum), and I figure that could make the picture taking last a little longer with random people hanging around. The guests could tour this site as well to pass the time.
At what time should we arrive at the reception?
Thanks in advance!
