@niicooleejean:  I think Monday would be difficult for a lot of people because it is a work day and the start of the week. I would suggest maybe trying to move your wedding date to a Friday or Sunday? I know a lot of places offer various discounts and stuff for having your wedding on those days. But then I also think it depends on how many people you are inviting and how formal or informal your wedding is. Cool

Are all your guests comming from nearby? It may work out well if so, but I would say 6:30pm should be fine. If it were me I would want to go ahead and get it out of the way, and hopefully not stay too late sicne I would have work the next day.


How long will your wedding be?

As long as everyone is local, 6:30 might be okay- the problem will be if people don’t leave work until 5-6, it might be cutting it close to get there.

We were married on Wednesday and had our reception from 4-6:30. It worked for us because our VIP guests either came from out of town for the wedding, or were teachers etc. and were out of school. The rest of our guests were mostly from righ tin town. We also had a full dinner, but not a program or anything, so people could come, eat, socialize etc. as worked for their schedules.

Oh man, Monday would be rough. If I were really close to the couple of course I’d be there, but I would have to think about anyone else. Friday would be better because at least I’d feel like I can enjoy myself. I’d be constantly worried about the time and what I drank on a Monday.

6:30-7pm is best for start time so you allow for people to get through rush hour traffic.

Monday would be rough – even for local people. I work until 7pm (12 hour shifts) and my Fiance works until 6pm most evenings. I don’t think we would be able to make it without requesting to work 1/2 days which can be troublesome.

we are doing a thursday, and having a private ceremony around 3-4ish.. with the reception starting at 5 but dinner not starting until 6.. i think as long as you give your guests enough notice and dont expect everyone to be able to make it, it will be fine!
