    We had a 3 PM ceremony.  It worked great for us.  We were able to get ready in the morning without rushing.  I am not sure what time our dinner started because I was so busy and not paying attention.  There was a ton of food during cocktail hour though that no one would have been too hungry.

    Ours is going to be around 2pm. We didn’t want people to be starving when they came to our wedding since we’re only having finger foods, cake and drink at the reception. 2 seemed like a good time for that because most everyone would have had lunch.

    6:30pm for us!  Figure out everything you need to get done beforehand and then see when youre ceremony CAN be.  I wanted 6pm originally but needed to push it  back.  But that’s with doing a first look, professional hair and makeup.  

    Ask your Fiance if he wants to see my timeline LOL I’d have to get up at … nope, wait I’d have to go to hair and makeup immediately after the rehearsal dinner to have a 10:30am ceremony.

    Plus, what are you doing for a reception?  What kind of gap would you have to have to make it to the dinner hour?

    We did 4:30 and it was perfect.  Let him know that the earlier you have the wedding the earlier you have to get up to get ready and you and your wedding party are not going to be happy if you have to get up at 4am to get ready for the wedding.

    It will be at 3:00 pm and cocktail hour starts at 5:00 pm so guests will only have an hour to burn in between.

    Our ceremony wasn’t until 6:30pm. Then the reception started at 7, with dinner around 7:30. We started getting ready around 1, with our first look and other various pictures starting at 4. What time is your reception? What does he think the guests are supposed to do all day??
