- Wedding: November 2011
Ok I know this is ridiculous because it is only 30 mins difference, but I’ve been going back and forth on the ceremony start time and I need to print out my ASAP! Which would you prefer to see on an invite? 3:30 PM or 4:00 PM? (By start time I mean time for guests to start getting there. Since we need a shuttle to transport guest to the ceremony location, the actual ceremony won’t start until 4:00/4:30).
Our wedding is at the beginning of November in Orange County.
The pros of a 3:30 start time: Since ceremony and reception are outdoors, people will be able to get inside to the reception hall before the sun starts going down, (and maybe before it starts getting cold? or will it be warm? CA weather is hard to predict!! haha).
Pros of a 4:00 start time- it looks better on the invite and doesn’t sound so early. Worried that a 3:30 start time will mean people will plan to leave earlier in the night because for some reason it makes the day sound much longer.
I know I’m overthinking this, but please vote as to which you’d prefer (even if you wouldn’t really care either way, what sounds better to you?).
