    I picked 6. I think when you have a Friday Wedding it’s best to push it as far back as you can. So that way if people are working they can still make it.

    @Jane77677:  I got married last Friday at 6pm, and I think thats a perfect time. That way people who live locally don’t need to take much time off work, and people who are travelling just a couple of hours can take just a half day.

    @TwoCityBride:  +1

    The later the better for the people who are working.

    So if you start at 6, is that a cocktail hour from 6-7, ceremony from 7-7:30, then dinner from 7:45 or 8 to 8:30 or 8:45?

    I would be STARVING by then!

    I think if you’re going to start with a cocktail our, I would have the start time at 5, ceremony at 6, and start dinner at 7!
