@GrumpyPumpkin: My planner said that for logistics, an hour should be set aside to clean up. I think if you do your last dance at 9, make a speech thanking poeple for coming, you should have everyone out by 9:30 and you will have time to still clean up.

If you try to wait until 9:30 to get everyone out and clean up, it likely won’t happen!

I wouldn’t feel rushed. There are posters on here who are doing wedding ceremony, pictures and reception in less than 4 hours!

You might want to make it part of your itinerary for the guests however. Perhaps stating that the ceremony will begin at ___ at this location, then the reception will be held at ____ at ___park. And maybe a “Please feel free to join us at _____ (bar name)_____ at 9:30 for post-wedding drinks.” By giving your guests a clear timeline of when they are required to leave the venue so they can decide how they want to spend the rest of their night 🙂
