We need to choose 11am or 3pm due to registrar availability if we want a Saturday summer wedding.
We have the reception venue all night, so my first thought was to go for 11am to make the most of it, but now I’m not so sure! Given the following, which would you guys go for?
–Wanted to have a first look, but it will be quite busy with tourists for photos later on in the day in the place we’re getting married. But then again, 11am means the first look would have to be quite early,
–Most people will be traveling from far so will need to spend 2 nights regardless.
–We are morning people, not so much party animals!
–We don’t want to do too many posed photos (30min max)
–I liked the idea of having some chill time for yoga and prepping with friends in the morning but…
–I know I’ll be so stressed out if I have to wait until 3pm!!
–We’re planning to do pizza and taco food trucks so not sure how we could spread this out throughout the day with an 11am wedding; but at the same time, 3pm seems like we’d have trouble to cram it all in.
I also thought that if we do 11am we would tell everyone the reception starts at 2 or 2:30, so if you want to walk over with us meet us at 1:30, otherwise just chill and enjoy the town until then (it’s very pretty and quaint!) Drinks reception would last about 1 hour from 11:40.
i have no idea what I’d do leading up to a 3pm wedding– would have to fit lunch in with getting ready, and it would feel like half the day has to go by…. but it would be really nice do yoga in the morning which will be harder to fit in with 11am….
We do want it to last until 11pm/midnight so it properly gets dark and we can do a bonfire.
