So, they get to the location and start having some nibblies and drinks, then the ceremony happens and then everyone gets to walk over to the reception site.  Correct.  I think that sounds lovely and fine.  Just to make sure everyone knows the deal put out a little sign, a program or a mention on website if you are having one.  For post ceremony picture time you could set out a type of game (quiz about you guys as a couple? ) and/or have a photobooth (homemade works fine) or a game that fits with your boardwalk theme.  Signage helps everyone to know what they can/should do so they don’t feel awkward.

Wouldn’t bother me at all. Sounds like fun. Your guests will not be confused as most tend to go with the flow.

We did cocktails before the ceremony for a few reasons and people really enjoyed it. We did put on the invitation:

5:00 Cocktails and Hors D’oeuvres

6:00 Ceremony

Dinner and Dancing to follow

That way people knew what to expect. Also, it gave a good buffer time so if people were running late or got stuck in traffic, there wasn’t any anxiety about missing the ceremony.

I don’t think it’s annoying at all–not sure why it would be.  Make sure the programs reflect the timeline and you’ll be fine!  Sounds like so much fun!

We are doing cocktails and photos pre-ceremony at 4/4:30, the ceremony at 5:30, and dinner at 6.

Which beach and Boardwalk? There’s a few things I’d consider,first being where will the cocktail hour be and will the venue go along with it? You won’t be able to have any glass on the beach, and have you found out about having music or electricity available for your processional, and even chairs?
