    June bride here but popping in to day this is exactly our schedule (and at close to the longest day of the year!). Proceed, August brides. 😀 ETA: Ours is on a Sunday, which is part of why we are doing it so early – to allow people to get home in time for work.

    July 30th bride here… so ALMOST august … haha

     

    I think 5:30 is perfectly fine. I’m doing 6pm just because I wanted a bit more picture time. But if you have a lot of young families or older people attending, they will likely thank you for eating at a “normal” time. I personally hate fancy events when supper is served late because I usually have to eat a light supper before i go out! x)

    I think 5:30 is fine. People will probably be hungry by then because of sitting through the ceremony and having conversation, etc. I usually eat at 6pm, so 5:30 is not that bad. They may get hungry later though… say 9pm. By then the party will almost be over 🙂 Actually, by then they will be eating cake!
