I’m having such a hard time picking a ceremony time, does anyone have advice? My options are 2pm or 5pm, and cocktail hour at the reception venue 15 minutes away can start at any time. I had originally wanted a first look and to get pictures done mostly before the ceremony, so that would favor the 5pm to avoid a very early morning getting ready. But the con of the 5pm is that dinner wouldn’t be served until 7pm or so, and I worry the reception will be so short that way! Has anyone had a 2pm wedding with some pictures beforehand, yet didn’t feel too rushed?

@DustyRose: I’m throwing in a vote for the 5pm for all the reasons that you said! I don’t think a 7pm dinner would be too late at all.

@pengoala: Thanks for the reassurance, I think I’ll go ahead with 5pm =)

@DustyRose: 5 pm is definitely better so you have more time to get the “first look” and wedding photos out of the way and you can have a more relaxing day overall. My Fiance and I are having a 6 pm ceremony and our reception is 30 minutes away and dinner won’t be served until 8:15 so don’t feel too badly about the 7 pm dinner! 🙂 Glad you decided to do the 5 pm! =)
