I’m super confused. Did you send out invitations? If you put 5pm on an invite people would still show up at 8pm?

I’m confused too.. Are you even going to be able to find a new venue on a months notice?  and then you’d have to inform every guest that you changed venues.  I think you’re just stressing out and need to take a deep breath. 

And why can’t you make an entrance until all guests arrive?  It’s their fault if they don’t make it there for 5:00 as the invitation says, not yours.

I think you should stick to your venue and your time, and not worry about it.  If people don’t show up on time and wait to go until 8:00 because it’s “too hot” that’s their problem (and I think that it’s very rude of them).

I’m confused too.

What time did you put on the invitation?

Are these guests invited to just the reception? Or ceremony too? Sorry I’m just confused.

Um I would go about my day as normal. If you receive an invite for a WEDDING starting at 5pm your ass better be there and in your seat to see it happening on time. Being late on purpose is rude and I would not wait around for other people to show up.

If your invite said 5 and people show up at 8. Their problem.

You’re not going to stand in the wings till every single guest arrives. That is not how it works.

Plan your schedule. If you set to make your appearance at 6 then you make your appearance at 6. The other thing to remember is your venue/caterer has a set schedule as well. So you can’t just push things back by 2 hours and expect the same amount of things to get accomplished.

Have you contacted your venue about timing yet? They may be able to provide insight on timing and where the sun will be at that time, etc

@CurlyWurly:ah, got it. i understand the cultural thing of showing up late now.

go with your planned schedule. whoever is there by 6 will see your grand entrance, and whoever shows up late won’t. as long as the important people (like your family) are there on time, that’s all that matters.

Oh sweety, I can only imagine. Now I understand the culture difference and the SUPER hot weather. I think it is really too late to change venues at this point.

To be honest, I think you will be so wrapped up in the moment with your new husband that the heat and construction won’t be on your mind at all. If your guests are accustomed to showing up late due to your culture, then let them. Savor every moment you get to have as the newly, minted Mrs. before everyone gets there and you don’t have time to share any quiet time with the Mr.

Just trying to think on the positive.
