I came across the same situation. I was NOT going to change my day, too much meaning behind it but the evening slot was taken. My wedding will be over by 4. My close family were grumbling about time. As I see it, it’s only one day! I’m sending out my STD so everyone has more than enough time to request this day off. About 90% of my guest are coming from out of town, this should give them enough time to be back home and ready for the next day… or they can go to the “after party” house. I have a few options for houses to host that are close by :0)

I, personally, like the idea of day weddings. Sunshine makes me happy.  We are having an outdoor wedding that will likely start in the early afternoon and extend into the night, but the daytime is what I’m really looking forward to.  

Also, it might save you some money on alcohol, as people are less likely to drink as much during the day.  

I say go for it. 🙂

Mines on a Sunday from 2-7! Nothing wrong with daytime 🙂

My reception was 1-5, and that timing was perfect. It was a heavy lunch, with primerib and shrimp, but you could also do an extended cocktail hour, with just lits of tiny bites. Personally, those meals are my favorite 🙂
