I think that after 6 is evening officially.  I think because some people work until 6?

I have always counted evening as starting at 5:00 based on events I have been a part of.

I always think of that time as sort of a gray area it’s pre-evening. But I’m with you that I would rather it say evening than afternoon. If thats what you want make them change it.

I didn’t think evening started until 6:00.  5:30 is still afternoon to me.

I like the sound of 5:30 in the evening better but I guess that’s because I’ve always considered around 5 to be in the middle of afternoon and evening for some reason.  We actually just put 5:30 but we were going to put in the evening if we had put something after that.

Ours is starting at 5:30 and we’re saying in the evening. I think it just sounds better that way even if it’s technically afternoon.

ETA: That’s not to say that someone having a wedding at 2 should write evening because it sounds better… 5:30 is one of those in-between times and our reception will deff be in the evening, so for this one I think it’s okay to write evening!

i agree, 5:30 in the evening sounds better. i wouldn’t care that evening technically starts at 6.

I don’t know where the work ends for all at 6 comes from.  MY FH ends soon after the market closes EST at 4, so many after work events (non-dinner) start at 5 or 5:30.  Generally, cocktail parties start in the 5s for us, and then we may have dinner plans afterwards.

@nmsoonerbride: To me, anything after 4:00pm is the “evening”.

If you want it to be evening, then this is the one time that I think you can pull the bride “it’s my day” card and make 5:30 an “evening” time 🙂

This post makes me think of that song “Five in the Afternoon”…. which I always thought was a funny play-on-words type song, because my afternoon ends at 4:59pm. 5 o’clock is definitley evening in my world.
