    My ceremony is starting at 3:30p, but it will be about an hour long.  Cocktail hour starts at 5p, dinner at 6p, dancing at 8p.  So I think 3pm is a great option.

    We’re having our ceremony at 1:00 and reception from 5:00 PM to midnight.

    I would look around for another officiant, you might even be able to have a friend licenced.  My dad is ours, it took me ten minutes and 10 dollars.

    I would keep looking. I know how hard it is to find a good officiant!! 🙁 But I really think the timeline is so important.

    It’s very common here to have a large gap between the ceremony and reception.

    Ceremony will go until 1:30, the the receiving line will probably last until 2:00. Then we’ll stick around until 2:30/2:45 taking pictures with family.

    After that we’re taking off to a park to take pictures with the wedding party. Those will take a couple hours.

    Both our ceremony and reception are also in the same place. But a lot of the guests are staying in the hotel so they have lots to do during the gap.

    What’s your timeline look for the evening? If you don’t have a preference, I would say go with 7pm! I think it could be made very romantic. 🙂 If you’re not pressed for time, I think I would go with the officiant you like!
