Have you explained these reasons to him? What are his reasons for wanting a 2pm ceremony?

Just explain that from a guest’s point of view, it SUCKS to have to wait for hours between the ceremony and the reception.  Trust me, your guests will thank you and you will have more time for pre-ceremony pictures, to get ready, and less stress!  You might also mention that you really want him to wear a tux and it is considered against etiquette to wear one for a 2pm wedding (I don’t know if you actually want him to wear a tux, but it can’t hurt mentioning it if you do!).

my question also – WHY does he want a 2:00 ceremony? And when is your reception?

Find out WHY he wants that – maybe it’s something you hadn’t thought of.

Otherwise – I’m with you.  Ours was at 6.  We did first look at 3:30, I started with my hair/makeup appt at 12:10.  I got to sleep in a little, have a nice breakfast, and make sure everything was ready. 

We went right from ceremony to reception so people didn’t have to find something else to do all afternoon.  I hate that. 

ETA – read your reply.  That’s adorable.  Do a first look and pictures early so you can share some time and see each other earlier in the day, but your guests won’t have to hang around all day.
