    I answered for a wedding not my own, but for a friends wedding this past weekend. The dancing commenced at 11:30 most guests left as “most” were family.

    I wasn’t paying close attention, but most (if not all) people stayed at least for a little while. There were some older/sick people who didn’t stay for long, but we had a great band and the dance floor was full for a long time. Our dancing started before 7:30, so people shouldn’t have been tired.

    No one left after dinner, since we purposely had dinner at about 7:30p. However, we did a wardrobe change and I would say a good 40% left during the 20 min wardrobe change.

    However, the fact that we had our wedding on a Sunday, may have played into it.

    @bobsoon2bewife9887: We had the wardrobe change at about 8:50p and came back in at 9:15p. It wasn’t that long but I would say that I noticed that the guest count dropped from probably 190 people to 125 people.

    I was okay with it, most of the people who left were people who were obligatory invites from my parents and I didn’t know who the majority of them were.

    @YS Queen: Did you do your first dance, cake cutting, bouquet toss and garter removal before you changed? I’m trying to figure out a good timeframe to change at my reception. Our wedding is at 5pm and I plan to be starting reception by 7pm so hopefully guest will be eating by 7:30pm.

    @nonchalant04: We didn’t do garter removal, but we did do everything else before we went to change. The only thing left that we did after we changed was to have a night snack.

    Our reception officially started by 6:45p with dinner starting by 7:25p.
