- Wedding: December 2011
Naturally, I ended up choosing something that is likely going to end up a bit challenging.
Here’s the challenge – we are getting married about 30 minutes from the reception venue on a Friday afternoon in December in the Philly area. The traffic is notoriously bad in the area around the holidays…we’d like to have the reception cocktail hour to start around 5:30 or 6. I am considering a 3 or 3:30 ceremony (45 mins for ceremony, 1 hour for receiving line and photos).
Should I consider scheduling the ceremony earlier? People seem to be very concerned about what the guests will do between the ceremony and reception. My fear is that if photos aren’t done until 4:45, we may not make it to the venue in time given traffic.
I know I’m not the first one to deal with a challenge like this – so bring on your ideas ladies!
