Help I have a 5pm ceremony and will get to our reception venue at about 6.30pm, I want my guests to eat as soon as possible so the bands can start. However I have put on my reception invites start time 8pm and buffet. Could I do a large buffet for 6.30pm then another finger buffet at 8.30pm? without disturbing the music and dancing?

I don’t think you can unless you inform your guests to come to the reception at 630. If I got an invite saying that the reception didn’t start till 8 but the ceremony was at 5. I would think there was a gap between the 2 events and might actually go somewherre else instead of to the reception venue.

I think you need to make sure your guests know what’s going on if you’re going to change the schedule.

@Hermoine: what do the ceremony guests invites say exactly? do you say you are feeding them at 8? if so you have to feed them at 8, or change the invite to 6 and then again soemthing at 8.
