@lala3005:  I agree with you on a start time. We actually had a different location, but only 5 minutes away, and we had our dinner start at 6:30 I believe as well, but we had a 4:30 wedding (omg was it 4 or 4:30? My old married brain can’t remember lol).

Either way, you’re asking guests to eat about 30 minutes later than she is. I would go later just in case you are running late at some point because even though you expect your ceremony to only be 10-20 minutes, it might not happen. Everything seems to go slower on the day than in rehearsal and planning.

No way it’s not too late! 

We will be having a ceremony from 5:30-6, with a cocktail hour until 7, and then dinner around 7:30 (after dances). I think as long as you feed your guests 8pm or before, you are still in the appropriate dinner time frame. 

(Of course, I’ve only been to evening weddings like this, so…)
