- Wedding: August 2012
EDIT: save the dates went out 11 months before the wedding (in case that changes anything!) 🙂
Things you need to know:
1) I am getting married on a Friday of a long weekend … Friday is NOT the holiday, but most people leave work early on this day anyways
2) The ceremony is at either 3 or 3:30 in the afternoon
3) There is some travel time (40 minutes? absolute max is 1 hour)
My question: is it rude to have my ceremony at this time of day?
I do not want the “first look” before the wedding, so pictures are happening between the ceremony & reception… and I cannot change the start time.
But I just want to know.. do you think it will piss a lot of people off? Or do you think that since it’s a wedding… since most guests leave early from work on the Friday, since it’s in the summer, since it’s a once in a life time thing, people will be HAPPY about leaving work a couple of hours early to be there?
I appreciate the advice in advance! 🙂
My cousins wife was just saying how she “doesn’t understand why we would get married at that time of day on a Friday of a long weekend.. it just doesn’t make sense to her… she just doesn’t get it” — very rudely, I might add 🙁
Anyone else getting sick of other peoples rude opinions!?
