    We are having a Friday night ceremony, and our plan was to do the ceremony at 7, be to the reception by 8, serve heavy apps, and dance the night away until midnight-12:30ish (we had to be out by 1).

    i think having it at 7 will allow people more time to get ready and be there on time for the ceremony…leaving work early for one day as imprtant as this one shouldn’t be a problem for most people i think…

    I think since you’re doing heavy apps, you don’t have to worry about avoiding dinner time, so I picked 7:00pm just to give guests extra time to get there.

    But I also think it depends on how long your ceremony will be, if you’re having your ceremony and the reception at the same place, and how long after your ceremony concludes you plan on serving the apps.

    If the ceremony is super long or the ceremony and reception will be at different locations, start the ceremony earlier, so your guests can eat at a decent time (not too late). I think 8:00pm would be the very latest you should have them start eating, especially if they’re coming straight from work.

    @christalynn11: Oops, I meant more along the lines of coming without having dinner first– not exactly straight from work.

    With your additional details in mind, I think 7pm would be great.

    I voted for 7 p.m., because we’re attending a Friday night wedding in a few weeks and it starts at 6 p.m. We are both going to have to leave work 2-3 hours early to be able to make it on time in rush hour traffic. 7 p.m. would still require us to leave early, but we wouldn’t have to take what practically amounts to a half day off – I think it’s a good option.
