ok heres a odd question (im thinking way to much into the wedding stuff) if our ceremony begins at 3, should that time be on the invitations?
i have it worded like this
“Ceremony to begin at 3:00pm at (ceremony location)”
by the way this are already printed and ready to go… is it ok??

Your wording sounds good and yes, you should have the actual start time instead of an earlier time.

You should never list an earlier time, so at least it’s accurate

AndysCraftsNmore: Definitely only list the time that the ceremony actually starts. There were a couple of weddings we attended that I am pretty sure listed a time that was forty minutes earlier and I was kind of ticked off to be waiting for well over an hour. Point is, your invite is perfectly fine. On our wedding website we reiterated that the ceremony would start promptly at 3.

On ours we put to arrive by 12:15 even though the ceremony only started at 12:30 (and guests knew this). Our venue was in the middle on nowhere so we knew it would take guests a little longer to find it, worked out perfectly. Most showed up between 12:10-12:20 so they had time to use the bathroom, get a drink and walk around the garden before the ceremony started.
As long as you don’t have a hard-to-find location and okay with waiting for possible tardy guests then putting 3 is fine.

At our wedding we put that the ceremony was to begin at 11:15am when it actually began at 11:30am. We knew that our friends and family are notoriously late for everything, so it was no surprise that guests were still parking when I got there at 11:15am. So glad we did or people would literally be coming up the aisle behind me, expecting to be seated.
