    No…and I was shocked! Our make up lady talked an extra Bridesmaid or Best Man into getting her make up done. By the time we got to the location, it was 12:45 and I had 15 minuets before my walk! I was dressed and ready to go in 10…then we were just waiting on the boys.      = )

    @MSomar: It was my own fault because the same person did hair and make-up for like 8 different people.  Yeah we started VERY early in the morning, but if I could go back I’d have one person for hair and one for make-up.

    No, but I was late to pretty much everything else that day.  Late to the hair appointment, late to start pictures, etc.  But for the ceremony, I was right on time 🙂

    Nope.  Our ceremony was set to start at 2:30.  I had my dad check his watch before we took our first steps down the aisle, and it was 2:31!

    We weren’t late to the venue (We arrived about 30 min before walk time) but we didn’t start on time to allow for the late people.  I think we started about 15 min late thanks to them.

    I have no idea!  I didn’t have a clock on me but I think we were pretty close to on time…

    i think it was Noelle ine one of the early bridezilla shows that was about 40mins late for the wedding and there was a wedding booked after her and then she had an attitude because the priest cut alot out of the ceremony due to time lost – i felt like smacking her over entitlement

    anyway no i wasnt late for the ceremony, im rarely late for anything and find it rude but i totally understand how things happen on the wedding day and being 5mins late is acceptable considering the logistics and its a wedding

    I voted “no.”  But I think you need an option that says “No, and I was surprised to actually be on time for once!”

    I was early. I was the first one to the church (and my sister who drove me). Before the Priest. Before the photographer. Before my parents. 

    It kinda sucked for a bit cause I just hung out feeling a little lonely.

    I was watching Four Weddings blunders show last night and they had a bride who was so late to her wedding all of the guests had to leave the ceremony area and be moved to a smaller area only to have to wait again for a funeral to be over with. That would drive me INSANE as a guest.

    I don’t think I’ve ever gone to a wedding where it started more than 10-15 minutes after the stated time.  We were on time, maybe 2 minutes behind, not sure, I didn’t have a watch and no ones watch agreed but 2 minutes I count as on time.  My husband and I are usually not so punctual.

    I’m anal about time too, but on my wedding day I decided not to stress about anything. I don’t even know why we were late, we were both there, we did the ketubah signing and were ready to get married but they had us sitting in a room for a while. Like I said though, I just didn’t want to stress out, and at that time I didn’t care.

    I went to a wedding once that started almost 90 minutes late and it was outside and hot. They are now divorced.
