That’s a lot of time, from 4:30 to 6:30. If you’re having a hosted cocktail hour so people will be occupied, then that is fine. Otherwise you need to adjust your schedule.

Personally, I think it’s fine. I don’t think you need to worry about adults being bored or having nothing to do. They are adults, they can figure it out on their own. As long as they know the time the reception starts, that’s fine.

I think that’s not too bad, I’ve recently been to a wedding where the gap was from 2.30 to 7pm – luckily it was my fiancés relative otherwise I wouldn’t have attended. I actually find it very difficult to figure out what to do during that time, all dressed up, my make up tends to disappear or smudge during that waiting period, and I can’t eat because it’ll be dinner reception …argh!

your time frame seems ok though 🙂 perfect time for a coffee catch up with other guests

Most people have a cocktail hour for their guests to drink, mingle and have some snacks while you take photos. What would they be able to do otherwise?

sarahroby:  How far apart is ceremony from the reception? Are you having a cocktail hour? Will the reception be near where people are staying (hotel)?

As long as you have entertainment and refreshments for your guests between those times I think you’re good…if you could cut it back to 6 that might be a bit better, but do what you think will work best! I mean hey, if you guys get done sooner than planned then you can join everyone for the fun early 🙂
