Between something like a photo booth, your guest book, drinks and some music- your guests should be able to get along for an hour without you.

Would you be willing to do some photos before the ceremony, such as first look, if you’re concerned about the gap?

Are you providing the drinks from the bar? An hour and a half isn’t too much but it’s on the cusp when you’re just standing around with drinks and then to finally be seated and maybe wait through speeches and etc before dinner might make guests impatient.

Can you do some photos beforehand? That might cut it down to an hour, and then it can just be during cocktail hour. Even if you don’t want a first look, you could do bride w/ bridesmaids, groom w/groomsman, bride with immediate family, groom with immediate family etc.

We did a first look and did all of our pictures before the ceremony. That way, we got to spend cocktail hour with the guests, which was really nice!
