I wouldn’t be annoyed. I’d be a bit confused at first because the norm is that you have the ceremony then cocktail hour, but as long as you either spread the word about your schedule or make sure your waiters/caterer can field questions like “did I miss the ceremony?” or “whats going on?”, I think you’ll be fine!!

Sounds fine to me! If anything, people might be confused.. but not annoyed. I think people (as in, me.. haha) are only annoyed if they are waiting around for long periods of time with no food/drinks! As long as people know what’s going on, it sounds like a good plan.

@abbie017: Thanks! I think I have decided to have programs for guests as soon as they enter with a schedule and possibly even a big DIY chalk board/sign for those guests who don’t look in the programs. I also already put it on our wedding website to get people acquanted with the idea in advanced so they know what they are going to be getting themselves into.
