rashidah824:  Congratulations! I don’t think the reception is too late. Kids can stay up a little late for such a special occasion, or if it’s that big a deal, parents can head out a little bit early leaving the partiers to finish out the night. That gap is pretty bad though. I’ve been to one wedding with a 1.5 hr gap and it was extremely tedious. Will there at least be a cocktail hour? If you could keep your pictures to an hour and will be hosting guests during that time, that should be ok. If you’re leaving them waiting for an hour and a half with no hospitality, that’s not good. I’m sure someone will be along shortly with a detailed timeline that should be helpful. Have fun!!

Fun venue! I was just at a wedding there in October. The wedding was at 430 and reception 530-1030, it was absolutely fine with an hour in between but any longer would have been too long. The guests have to leave the reception area as they change it from ceremony to reception, so all the guests went outside and watched pictures kind of waiting for cocktail hour to start. Do what’s best for you, people can take kids home early but I’d suggest 530-1030 🙂
