@MrsDrRose612: perfect time. It’s still light out and people have plenty of time to get out of work. The Friday weddings I went to this past summer started at 6:30.

Good question – we are having a Friday wedding and getting into the start time discussions now. I don’t think it’s too late – are you having a dinner too? If so and people know that I think as long as they know to eat in the evening then shouldn’t be an issue!

My wedding is Oct 12 and My Ceremony Starts at 6:30, 7- 8 Cocktail hour and 8 -12 reception. Dinner will be served at 8:30. Now i understand this will be late for some people and honestly i can’t help that! Your time sounds PERFECT

A lot of the venues I was looking at wouldn’t start the ceremony until 6 at the earliest on a Friday because they booked the venues for other things during the day. I think that for a Friday starting later is fairly common, so 7 should be fine!

Our wedding is on friday and the start time is 6pm. Sort of bummed because it won’t be dark outside, but it allows the max time of the reception. I guess 7pm is ok if you don’t plan to have a long ceremony. For a typical 20 minute ceremony, you should be fine. We’re doing our pictures BEFORE the ceremony. If you are waiting until after the ceremony to do pictures, you will have a short reception.
