@NovaGrey:  7 hours sounds like more than enough to me!

I’m doing a Saturday Brunch wedding – we don’t need to worry about set-up and tear down, so keep that in mind.

“Getting Ready” at home 6.30-7:30am

“First Look” and Photography at home 7:30-8:30am

Photography at the Location 9:00-9:30am

Ceremony 10:00-11:00am

Reception 11:00-2:00pm

Our total amount of time at the place for pictures, ceremony and reception will be 5 hours.  It seems like 2 extra hours for set-up and tear down are reasonable.

I think 7 hrs will be enough time.  The ceremony, cocktail hour, reception is from 12-5.  We plan to set up from 9-11.  We are having 100 guest so I think this should give us enough time with 5 people setting up. Its really just table and aisle decor.

So think about how much you have to do in terms of set up and how many people will be working on that, then decide about how much time it will take them.

Our brunch wedding is this Saturday! We are setting up the night before, getting ready from 8-10, ceremony at 10:30, reception around 11:30, and I expect people won’t stay past 2:30 or 3:00. But, I don’t know how we’d fit in decorating/set up the morning of and I only have 35 guests.
