even with activities, as a guest, 2 hours seems like a long time between ceremony and receiving line/apps

I’ve never heard of a receiving line AFTER pictures. I thought it was always done directly after the cermoney as the guests were leaving the church. So how are you doing a receiving line post pictures?

@katebell17:  This is the way every wedding I’ve ever been to has been. There is always a break between the church and the meal when the bridal party gets thier pictures done. Most people here have arrangements for meeting at friends houses, having a few drinks etc until the dinner.

I think when it comes to asking for opinions you need to take into account what is “normal” for other regions. Having at least a 2 hour break in between church and dinner is totally normal / standard where I come from. Cocktail hour etc is not very common. People usually stay at the wedding then until well after midnight.

 Sometimes, I go to ceremonies in the afternoon in somewhat dressy clothes, then before leaving for dinner is when I really get dressed for the party! It’s all about what your guests expect to be honest! It would be recived as a perfectly normal wedding here where I live.
