    Ours is 1 hour. My photographer tried to convince me to make it longer, but we can’t. I’m afraid guests would get bored plus we would need to pay for even more appetizers and drinks. Don’t want guests to be stuffed/drunk for dinner!!

    Ours will be approximately 1 hour..however since its Croatian tradition to do your receiving line during this time, it may run 1.5 hours.
