    We’re thinking 4:30, however we may go to 5:30 depending on the number we have attending (no alcohol, so we don’t want the reception to be suuuuppeerrrr long!)

    Ceremony starts at 5:30, so I will be walking down the aisle at approx. 5:32 🙂

    We are doing photos before, so it is straight to the reception after the ceremony.

    6:30 ceremony ends, travel to reception
    7:00 cocktails hour
    8:00 dinner

    I’m getting married on a Sunday so it depends on if someone rents the venue out that Saturday.  I’m having both ceremony and reception at the same location.  If we can decorate the Saturday night, then we will start at 4ish.  If we have to decorate the Sunday, then it will start at 5ish.  Most of the pictures except with the groom and I will be done before.

    We have our ceremony from 2.30 for 30 minutes (simple Anglican ceremony) followed by pictures outside the church for 30 mins then 45 min drive to the reception/photo place. Guests start their canapes at 5.45 and we enter at 6.30.

    Food/speeches until 9-9.30 and then party along until 11.30 when we leave well ish lol

    Follow up question:  First of all, I want the ceremony at 4 (we haven’t sent out invitations yet and we’re the only ones getting married at our chapel that day so we can do it whenever we want)… but I’m afraid that if I say 4pm on the invitation some people will be late and then I won’t walk down the aisle on time and it will throw off my schedule which will turn me into somewhat of a Bridezilla.  Is it silly to put 3:30 on the invitation knowing some people will be late??

    12-1 – church ceremony

    1-2 – beach photos

    2-3 – canapes and venue photos

    3-5.30 – reception meal – speeches

    5.30 – 7 – mingling, photos, children entertainment

    7-1am – evening reception

    @jflindall:  Please don’t. I’m always 15 minutes early for weddings and while I have sat there for 45 minutes waiting for the wedding to start, it’s never pleasant. I think that most people will be courteous.
