On the one hand…you can do whatever you want. It’s your celebration.

But on the other hand… I do think it’s a little…weird.

The JOP idea isn’t a bad one, if you’re open to that.

We kind of had something like this – we got married in the middle of a hockey game. So our reception kind of went on the whole time. When guests arrived at the venue, the could have apps & drinks in our reception room, watch the game,mingle.. We did a  “first look” with me & the girls arriving at the reception after the guests and guys. Then it was announced for everyone to their seats in the arena because the ceremony would begin shortly. After the ceremony, it was back to the reception where the dinner/cake/etc was served. After the game guests were invited to skate on the ice.

The timeline was different than most weddings, the venue was different. Ultimately, the wedding is yours. Do what makes you happy! 🙂
