- Wedding: February 2017 - historical mansion
Ours was 5 hours, but I was adament that the reception part (i.e. the fun part) start by 7:30. So the party was 7:30 to 10, and I didn’t think it felt too short. We had a 25-minute ceremony, leading into cocktail hour. Dinner was 6:30 to 7:30. We did our two dances (DH and me + Family Dance) and then the dance party started. We didn’t cut the cake. We just announced that cake and other desserts were available and people could go help themselves.

I had a ceremony for half hour and then 5 hours reception so in total 5 and a half hours. I think its normalish but if you can extend 1 hour maybe do that.
