For my own wedding and others I’ve been to, the groomsmen got there 45 mins before the ceremony start time.

Do you have a photographer and are you doing pictures before or after?  My photographer made a schedule of how our pictures will go, and that helped me determine what time to tell everyone to be there.  Our ceremony starts at 3:30 and the pictures with the wedding party will be starting at 1:30.

Ours showed up about 30-45 minutes prior to the start of the ceremony. I think the wedding coordinator at the church said for them to be there 30 minutes ahead of time to greet/usher the guests.

My ceremony was at 2pm and the Groom got there about 12:45/1pm.  There wasn’t really anything for them to do at the church since they got dressed already so they all sat in the bus and drank a few beers haha.

Our guys arrived a half hour earlier.  There was a wedding before ours and we weren’t allowed to be there any earlier.  They were dressed, and all they had to do was put on their bouts and greet guests.

Ours were not supposed to show up any sooner than 30 minutes before, because that was when the last mass ended.
