    Later. Then it goes later. 10:30 is incredibly early to end the night IMO.

    @MrsN14:  I will say that I don’t think you have nearly enough time for the receiving line.  You will have less then 10 seconds per guest.  And each person is going to want to say Congratulations, you look beautiful, and you thank you for coming with both you and FI. 

    You also haven’t accounted for any time to get to the locations, or the time it will take to gather up the bridal party, (someone will have to go to the bathroom), then get to the picture location.
