    Will there be a cocktail hour?  If so, are you planning to go to it?

    it completely depends- are you doing a first look?  how many photos do you want? do you have a big wedding party? do you have a big family? do you care about “getting ready” shots? you should talk to your photographer about your options and how long she estimates it will take

    we are in the same situation as you and doing everything in one place.  we are doing all the formal pgotos before hand with the entire bridal party and then when they are changing the room over, we’ll do some photos with the extended family.

    if you want a lot of photos, i would try and take as many as possible before the ceremony.  if you don’t do a first look, you will of course have to take your couple and entire wedding photos and family photos after the ceremony, which means you will definitely need that cocktail hour (which you are debating in your other thread).  again, though, your photographer will be the best source of info for this.
