    We are planning on leaving our reception at 9:30 pm.  We have a feeling that a large number of our guests will be gone by then, which kind of sucks, but we wanted a set time for a “formal goodbye” so we aren’t roped into staying later. If everyone knows that we are planning on leaving that night, no one will be expecting us to stay and party down all night with them, you know? 

    I think it just depends on what you and your fiance deem appropriate.  It is more important to us to spend the wedding night together before we get tired and cranky, than to party it up with our families and friends…but it’s totally understandable if you all want to stay and party with your guests.  What does your fiance think?

    We are leaving at 10 and the reception ends at 11.  That’s a long enough day for me!

    We’re staying till the end 10:00pm and then heading out with the rest of our bridal party and anyone else who wants to come to our local pub.  Sounds strange but the pub is where all of our friends gather so it just seems normal.  We want to drag the celebration out as long as possible.

    Hey Miss Chocolate – me too, love the sparkler exit and I hope our venue will allow it. Even though we too will only be going down the road to the same hotel that most of our out of town guests are staying at, my FH actually brought the idea of leaving before everyone.
