The idea sweetie and I are currently playing around with is having a formal morning wedding and brunch. Taking a break and doing some fun activity. Then having a less formal, fun, funky reception that night. I just worry about people sticking around for the night reception. We our having our wedding out of town (a 4 hour drive for all guests), so I’m thinking a lot of people would just leave right after the morning wedding and go home.
So my question to you is, would you stay or would you go? What are your thoughts on this idea?

If you were my family or my BFF I would stay. However, I don’t think older guests would stay and what are the guests that don’t know anyone going to do for the hours in between?

I think it depends…if I were an acquaintance or general friend I’d leave. If I were a close friend I’d probably stay. Sounds fun 🙂

I would stay because if it were a 4 hour drive for me I would prob get a hotel. But I know there are a lot of other people who would I leave. I was contemplating doing lazer tag in between ceremonies 🙂

I’d honestly be more worried about people skipping the ceremony (especially if early morning) and coming to the reception only.
If it were me I’d go to the whole thing because it’d be rude to do one and not the other.

Another thought…if you had an afternoon wedding and evening reception, either way I would stay. But given the option of morning ceremony/brunch reception, I might come in the night before and then go home same day as your event.
