    If you don’t want to pay for more time; you could suggest an after party location.

    I am having my wedding end at 10pm with an afterparty! The afterparty will be in a different room/ area at the venue, and I am just thinking of ordering some pizzas.

    Have the afterparty somewhere near the main hotel yoru guest stay at.  A local bar, or maybe that hotel can offer you a private room for 2 hours (or just book a large room there??) then the party can continue and again, pizzas are a nice cheap and appreciated way to go! Have the guys bring some 6 packs 🙂
    We are not paying any of our vendors extra to stay later (no dj)

    I said 10 because I’m not really sure why there an hour between when the wedding ends and when you start cleaning.  I would think you can clean right at 10 when everyone leaves so you’re still out of your venue by 11.  Obviously this is only possible if you want to pay the DJ for an extra hour.

    Who is cleaning up?  It shouldn’t take 2 hours- Assuming you’ll have more than 1 person cleaning, 1 hour would be fine, meaning you can end the reception at 10.

    I would also take a look at your timeline.  You’re only giving 30 minutes for food to be served and eaten, but 15 minutes each for a 1st dance and a garter toss?
