I would think that generally most of the guests would leave right after you and your husband make your departure, so if you leave 30 minutes before 8, I would think that most guests would be gone by 8. As for transitioning… after the ceremony, have your officant tell the guests to go enjoy the cocktail hour while you take pictures or what not.. then to end cocktail hour make your new “entrance” (even though they will probably still see you the whole time, I’m guessing?) as Mr. and Mrs. then go into your first dance, then others will start to join in dancing… depending on when you want to eat dinner, maybe have the dj or whoever announce that the buffet is open or that dinner will be served and to please take their seats. After dinner do the cake cutting, then mingle for a while, do the tossing of the bouquet and garder (if you’re doing that) then make your departure. This is how I would do it! Hope this helped!

If people see you starting to clean up they will either leave or pitch in to help.You won’t have to make any announcement at all. I couldn’t watch a bride clean up her own wedding and not pitch in to help.

Can you put something about when it ends into the invite?
