    I’d want to start earlier in consideration of folks who have to work the next day.

    @youngORbride:  How far is the ceremony from the reception? How long is the ceremony (religious 1 hour mass or 15 minute civil ceremony?) I would leave travel time and the cocktail hour inbetween the ceremony and reception start times, so if it’s an hour mass. Ceremony at 3. Over at 4. Half an hour travel? cocktail hour at 4:30, dinner at 5;30, night over by 10:30 easy peasy.

     

    If not, let’s say it’s all at the same place. 15 minute ceremony. 3 Pm ceremony. 3:30-4:30 cocktail hour, 4:30 dinner to 9:30.

    For a Sunday wedding, earlier is better, especially if you have people traveling. For our Sunday wedding, we had our ceremony start at 1pm, and the reception went until 7pm.

    I’m having a Sunday wedding and I plan on the ceremony being at 3. I figure 3-3:30 for the ceremony, then the reception will go until about 8. I don’t want it to run late since people have to work Monday, and our reception/ceremony (one location) site is about 45 minutes from the main city we live in. We’re also doing a first look so we can join the reception asap. 🙂
