@sugar_biscuit:  I would say 7:30. Typically guests are there on time, but I don’t know about 25 minutes before so if they really want all guests there by that time I would state the time a half an hour earlier than the actual wedding.

@sugar_biscuit:  Put the time on the invitation that you want people to physically be there. I agreed with the PP that 7:30 pm should be fine. I wouldn’t fudge the the time any more than that as it is annoying as a guest to have to sit forever and wait…been there, done that.

On your invite, put the time at 7:30. That gives you a 30 minute cushion for late comers.. if its a DW type deal.. people may be less likely to be late.

I know I’m late for everything at home, but was early for the last DW I attended simply because I didn’t have all the distractions of my everyday life.
