I havent been to a Sunday morning wedding, but I know other bees have.

A jazz trio isn’t crazy. What about a jazz brunch? I think that could be really nice!

  • Wedding: September 2010

We had a Sunday late morning wedding.  Our ceremony was at 11:30, and our reception went until 4:30.  Everything was in the same location.  It was a beautiful oceanside ceremony filled with family and close friends (a bigger guest list than you, but I have a big family ๐Ÿ™‚ and didn’t want to celebrate without them).  We invited all the kids (and there were a lot) and ended up with a very laid-back, catch up with everyone, family party.  Which was what we wanted.  It was great.  We wouldn’t have wanted it any other way, we didn’t have to wait all day to get married (OMG, we would have been a mess!), we had the rest of the night to visit with people, and get some sleep (we were exhausted from not sleeping well leading up to the wedding). ๐Ÿ™‚  No one had to leave early because of work, the kids didn’t get cranky.  

If that’s what you want, do it!! ๐Ÿ™‚  And enjoy it.  Don’t worry so much about creating a “wedding”, but make a party that you and your new husband want to share with your guests. ๐Ÿ™‚  Good luck!

Personally I would think 10 would be too early after you take into account the time that you need to get ready and if you are doing pics before the ceremony.  Also factor in the travel time for your guests, if anyone has an hour or more to get there, they will have to be up very early to get there before your ceremony starts.  I think 11 would be fine.

That being said, my ceremony is at 11:30, our venue told us to put 11 on the invites and they would have a room setup with a continental breakfast for our guests. The reception ends at 5. We had quite a few reasons for wanting a daytime wedding and the fact that it was cheaper was just an added bonus.

@msgraphics – I bet your guests enjoyed the breakfast.

11 is a good time. Most worship services start at that time and so I don’t think anyone would think it odd or be put off by it.

Sounds nice.
