+1 for all pp that said afternoon ceremony and reception witLatin after party. i think logistically that would be better for you and the guests.

If you are spending the money on a BBQ party as the rehearsal dinner why not just have the BBQ party as the wedding reception? If the BBQ party is how you would like to celebrate your wedding then do it. There are no rules on what a reception should be so why can’t it be a big backyard BBQ party?

You could have the ceremony and serve some apps/cocktails and then shoot off for some pictures whilst everyone else goes back to the BBQ party.

I can’t imagine sitting through a ceremony after essentially celebrating a wedding the night before.
