How long is your ceremony?  Will you start on time?

Fiance and I aren’t doing the first look either and are trying to cram all our pics between the ceremony and start of dinner.

No one will expect you at the cocktail hour and you can make your grand entrance after everyone has entered the reception.  The only reason to show up earlier is if you want to see how it all looks (maybe you can get a friend to take some pics for you, if you can’t make it there).

Is there a lot of drive time between the ceremony and reception?

I’d carve out some must do pictures/locations and make sure you get those.  I’d think you’d want some non-reception pics with you and your hubby and your photog will make sure you get those.

We talked to our photog about wanting to do it this way and she thought she could pull it off – but warned us it would be tight.  We are extending the cocktail hour to an hour and a half to get both family photos and couple shots in.  I’m bummed out we won’t be enjoying our cocktail hour, but it was worth it to not see Fiance before the ceremony!!

I’m a little nervous about rushing all the pics too – but I think it will work out ok!!

p.s.  TALK to your photog about the timing.  The most important thing is that they are on the same page with you and understand the kinds of photos you want.
