I went to a friend’s wedding party that was three hours. The ceremony happened privately for family only, and the reception itself was the full three hours. It was a buffet-style lunch with dancing. I actually thought it was the perfect length. There was plenty of time for conversation, cocktails, food, dessert, a special music performance, the first dances, and an open dance floor.

The bride texted me later that she and a few people were having “afterparty” drinks at a local bar, plus there was a dinner the night before that I was invited to, so those were nice opportunities for me to catch up with the couple more personally (since no one ever really has a chance to talk at the wedding). But even without those extra events, I thought the wedding was just right. I haven’t read your other posts, but maybe you can extend the celebration in other ways/at other times?
