Just found out my reception venue closes at 10pm. I originally planned for a 3pm ceremony at church, 4:30-5:30 cocktail, 6-7pm dinner, 7-8 (dance, cake cutting, etc), 8-11pm open dance. Since open dance will be cut by an hour, should I move the ceremony to 2pm? What do you think?

well, I don’t know the norms of the place where you are getting married, or even where your getting married, but 3-11 seems extremely long to me. So, I think you would be fine with keeping your wedding at the same time and just ending an hour earlier. I definitely dont think you will miss out on anything you would want to do.
Our wedding is an hour shorter than I originally wanted due to a overbooking by our recpetion venue, but we are doing Ceremony at 1 Reception immidiately following and then ending promptly at 5
