- Wedding: January 2012
Okay, so some background in case you don’t all obsessively read everything I’ve ever written (whaaaa??)
I’m having a morning ceremony and a brunch reception. We’ll be having a string quartet for the ceremony and first half of the reception. We technically have the space as late as 3:30 but I doubt we’ll stay that long.
Here’s a rough outline of my day of timeline so far.
11:00 am guests arrive (guests are seated at the reception tables, no room change)
11:15 prelude music starts
12:00 ceremony end, postlude, MC welcomes to the reception
12:15 brunch begins, mimosa bar opens
1:15 music ends, toasts, cake cutting, dessert buffet
2:30 couple leaves
3:00 guests leave, parentals clean up
What am I missing? I don’t want to plan on keeping everyone there forever since it’s in the middle of the day. But I also want to have a chance to see everyone, hold all the babies kiss all the grandparents, etc.
Anyone else have a midday reception? How’d you fill the time?
