    I don’t mind either, but I’m a bit of a night owl. We also had a Sunday evening wedding (ceremony at 5) and we went until 11:30 at which time I CHOSE to shut the party down because I was exhausted. It could have easily gone longer, but we had a younger crowd which helped. 

    Whichever you prefer will be lovely.

    I am also have a sunday wedding and my wedding starts at 5:30.  The reception is from 6-11… and it’s not on a holiday weekend.

    I would say an afternoon reception would be best. That way, people may not feel so rushed and lunch receptions are far cheaper than evening ones. On Sunday evenings, people are thinking about work and getting the kids to bed.

    A Sunday lunch reception would be lovely. A Sunday night however would be really hard for me, I would only attend for family members or a really really close friend.

    I’d be fine with either. 

    FWIW, we had a Sunday wedding. Our ceremony started at 5:30 and our reception went until 11pm. We had over 100 people (out of 140) still left by the time 11 rolled around. About half had flown in for the wedding. Our wedding was the weekend before July 4th (it fell on a Wednesday) so some people had a three day weekend. All of the kids were on summer break, so my cousins stayed till the end since their kids didn’t have to go to school. A lot of our local guests don’t have tradition M-F 9-5 jobs so it worked out.

    I would prefer the afternoon if I had to travel home for work the next day.

    We had a Sunday reception (wedding) that started at 6 and ended at 10.  It worked out fine.

    I went to a Sunday wedding that started at 11am (ceremony) and was over before 4pm.  There was still dancing and lots of fun to be had.
