I thought it would be interesting to see what time everyone’s starting their ceremonies!
There weren’t enough options to put a half hour in (plus that would be a HUGE graph), so just vote for the hour and don’t worry about the minutes, i.e. ceremony start time of between 4pm and 4:59pm would go under 4pm.
We’re doing ours at 2pm… I hope it’s not too hot! But we needed the time to get ready in the morning but also to have photos after the ceremony (we’re having quite a traditional wedding). Fi was adamant he wanted to see me for the first time walking down the aisle lol. Why did you pick your time? How does your day flow?

5’ish, I think.
[Maybe you could write “1pm hour” etc. on the poll options (I know from personal experience that not everyone always reads the posts before they answer/comment, haha). feel free to ignore this if it’s an unwanted suggestion, I won’t be offended – hopefully you’re not either!]

Oh good idea, thank you daydreamwanderer! I hope I didn’t mess up the vote for whoever put ‘after 5pm’ (now ‘after 6pm’) – I realised the 5pm hour was already taken care of 😉

7pm! It’s a Friday night ceremony, so we want to give people time to get there after work.

We’re walking down the aisle at 5:30pm. In Chinese traditon it’s good luck to get married at the half hour because from then on the hand is moving in a positive directioin! hehe. Silly I know.

Wow, I’m surprised there aren’t more late afternoon votes (I’m at 4:30). Rock on all you morning and evening gals!

I walked around 4:30ish. The ceremony took place at the reception venue so we had the luxury of walking when we wanted to.

1pm. Wish we could have it a little later, but the church was only available at 1pm. We are victims of what is known “the wedding gap”

We’re starting at 2 pm. With a full Mass it may go as late as 3:30 pm, then by the time everyone gets to the reception it will be about 4:30ish (not that it takes that long, just people might start chatting outside the church etc… and we’re doing pics). The cocktail hour should start around 4:30/5 pm then we’ll probably get introduced around 5:30/6 pm and have dinner etc… It will probably be a late reception – I’d be surprised if it’s completely finished before 11/midnight…

here’s our schedule: our invitation calls for 7. ceremony starts at 7:30. cocktail hour at 8. reception 9-1am.
i like it this way b/c we’re doing cocktail hour on a rooftop (weather permitting) so the sun will be setting.

4pm! We’re getting married at my parent’s place, so we could just choose whatever time we wanted.

We’re scheduled to start the ceremony at 6pm. Everyone’s been telling me I will be late, but I HATE being late! Maybe I’ll be one of the few brides that are on time?

our plan is for 4 pm. Everyone (or, most everyone) will take the 3:30 ferry over to the island, disembark, have a drink, be seated for the 4pm ceremony, short civil ceremony, and then the festivities begin and go until the last ferry departs at 10:45!!

My ceremony is starting at 430, with guest arrival at 4pm. I plan on walking down promptly at 430, I hate being late!
