Personally, 6 hours was more than enough time for my wedding!  Hope this helps…

I had my venue for 6 hours (5 PM to 11 PM). This did not include any setup or breakdown time. Our ceremony was at 5:30, and was pretty short (probably less than a half hour). Our reception was immediately following. The 5.5 hours we had for the wedding ceremony + reception (5:30-11) was a good amount of time. It included a 1 hour cocktail hour, dinner, and then about 2 hours of dancing. I would not have wanted less time than that, though.

we have our ceremony at 4:30 (about 30 minutes) and then reception from 6-10. All of the wedding receptions I have been to though I have died off after 3-4 hours (none have lasted longer than 4). hope that helps!
