    It would depend on travel time for me. If I could get a cab or public transport there in half an hour or less probably 10am? That gives a little bit of a sleep in (compared to when I’m normally up for work) plus enough time to shower and get ready and arrive a bit early. I would still attend the earlier weddings though (even if it was 6am if it was a close friend I’d just do it!) but 10am would be my earliest “comfortable” time.

    Well I mean I’d go to an early morning wedding of a good friend at anytime but if it was any earlier than 10am (or any earlier than 11am if it was a fair distance to drive) then DH and I would whinge about it to each other.

    9 am is too much like a work day. It’s very rare for me to be ready by 9 am on a weekend, so I’d call that too early. (I’d probably still do it, but not be happy).

    10 am is on the early side, but I’d do it, so I voted 10 am.

    I have attended at least one 11 am wedding so I know I’d be ok with that.

    I voted for 10am, but I wouldnt be happy about it. 11 am is better, 12pm would make me very happy. 

    Anything befor 10am and I would curse your marriage…

    If they meant enough to me and vice versa for them to invite me to their wedding, any time that was asked of me. You want me there to watch your 6 a.m sunrise ceremony? See you at 5.

    if it’s before noon I would probably laugh and RSVP no. just my honest opinion. I like to sleep in until around 10 on the weekends so by the time I got up got ready and got out the door it would be around 1130 at the earliest.

    10 am. I take at least an hour to hour and a half to get ready for a wedding. I don’t care how much I love the person but I’m not getting up the same time I do for work, or earlier, to attend a wedding.

    I could do 9:30, but 9 is too early. Being somewhere at 9 or earlierand not being paid for it is awful.

    Anytime. If it’s an out of town breakfast, I’d try to come in the night before.

    julies1949:  I laughed at this because I seriously feel the exact same way. 

    There’s little chance I would look put together enough to attend a wedding any time before 10:00 a.m., and I probably still wouldn’t look my best. I have this horrible vision of myself at an 8:00am wedding with massive bags under my eyes and a streak of my leg that I forgot to shave. That would so happen to me.

    While I think ten or eleven would ideally be the earliest, I’d attend a wedding at any time of the day if someone invited me.
