I’m sorry that you’re having to deal with this, but if it’s over at 2, you should be fine. Guests usually arrive about 15-30 minutes early at the most, so that will give them time to clean up and be out of the way. I would be more worried that you aren’t on the schedule then about some cupcakes in your way. Good Luck!

I would continue to call and email the Pastor (or Pastor’s secretary) until you get them to promise to change the time, location, or date of the bake sale.  Imo, since your wedding was scheduled way before the bake sale, they should accomodate you first.  Even if they just moved it up an hour, it would make a big difference.  I would be pretty upset about that, too.  And I wouldn’t mention anything else to your great aunt; it seems like you should only talk to the person in charge because she is causing a lot of unnecessary drama.

I would also see if you can get the bake sale moved up one hour to account for tear down. At my church there were weddings scheduled at 10, 2, and 5. It amounted to about a two-hour window between each wedding and it worked great. I had the 2 o’clock slot and didn’t see anyone from the previous wedding, and we left before anyone after us got there too (and we stayed until 4 p.m.).

If your grandmother plays a big role at the church, I would ask her to help you resolve this issue. The two of you should go to the church and personally talk to the pastor, if you do it face to face, this may help the pastor see how upset you are.

Something like a bake sale, IMO, is flexiable, so ask if they could switch to the following weekend, or perhaps have it changed from 10AM-1PM or 9AM-1PM. Explain your reasoning: that you want to ensure everyone has a place to park, that you want everything to be cleaned up, etc. You could also put a spin on it saying that you don’t want the church members that are overseeing the bake sell to be uncomfortable if your family is going to be setting up/guests arrive early. Say that you don’t want them to feel that they are in the way. That way the pastor will think you are thinking of others as well and trying to make it best for everyone 🙂
