msdosra:   While it is perfectly acceptable to have a daytime ceremony followed by a lunch reception, you have to expect some resistance from the older family members. For one thing, they are probably not used to driving 2 hours for lunch, much less a wedding reception lunch. It may appear to them that you are simply avoiding hosting dinner.

Are you having a large gap in time between the end of the lunch reception and the evening after party?

I think it sounds great- although I have sticker shock! : )

I know a lot of people have daytime weddings, so I’m not sure what the objection is. Just make sure there is enough food and drink and they’ll all be happy,

And, where exactly should we be meeting you for the after-party??

I think it will really be fine. There isn’t even much time between each event, and you’re clearly not being cheap. Some people can be very small-minded when it comes to weddings, but I’m sure that when they see how it all turns out, they’ll love it.

Just one thing: 1pm-2am is a very long time to be partying. Expect some people to leave early, and others to be uh… deep in their spirits!
