    Our bar will close at 1:00 AM, and we’ll start encouraging people to leave around then. Everybody has to be out by 2:00 AM. That’s pretty much typical here. I’ve been to weddings where the reception lasted until 4:00 AM. I can’t imagine the reception ending at 10:00 PM, that’s usually when the party is really getting started for us. In my experience the bride and groom usually leave long before the party is over, although I think my Fiance and I will be an exception to that rule.

    Our ceremony starts at 7:30 and the reception will end around 12:30. It’s on new year’s eve, so it’s going to be a big party.

    We both want an afternoon wedding with no meal.  So we’ll probably end at 5 or 6ish!

    @excitedtobeMRSF:  You won’t be too tired, as long as you don’t drink a lot.  I didn’t have any alcohol at my wedding so by the time we got to the B&B, I was ready for bed but still had a little left.  You are still on such a high.

    Our’s will be ending around 1 AM which is too late in my opinion but for religious reasons, we cannot start the ceremony until 7:30 and it is a 5 hour wedding pacakge.

    Oh well!

    Our ceremony started at 4:30 as well and though it only lasted 20 minutes, we had been told to expect it to last about 45 minutes to an hour. Therefore, we planned for the reception to start at 6:30 (it was at our home 30 minutes from the ceremony site). We had the end time as 10:30 but ended up having the DJ play the last song around 10ish because honestly I was just ready to be done for the night!

    I want a Sunday wedding so we have the weekend to spend with family beforehand so we will leave at 9pm at the latest since its a weeknight.  Also my family has to tear down decorations and I don’t want them there till midnight or all hours of the night.  Also I want to be able to enjoy our first married night without being tired
