I was wondering about having more time in between the ceremony and the reception. We have ours at 430, and then reception party at 630. I think judging by most of the responses that will be enough time, but I like that you've given yourself ample, so you don't have to worry about it!
Our ceremony is at 1pm and then cocktail hour is 5:30pm. Then reception start at 6;30. We are not doing first look so we need a longer time inbetweeb to go to the park. Ceremony and reception at the same place. What is your thoughts on our timeline please ...
My plan is a timeline like this: 3pm - private ceremony 3:30pm - pictures 5pm - cocktail hour at reception site for guests 6pm - wedding party entrance and dinner
I figure this way no one has to wait around forever while we're taking pictures and then we're not rushed. The ceremony site is small, so it'll be immediate family and a few select guests only and most of them will be in some pictures anyway.
Our ceremony is from 2:30-3:30 and our reception starts at 5:30. We will be chasing the sun for photos because the sun sets at 4:50 on our wedding day. Plus our reception is a 15 minute drive from the church.
We are still planning it but look like we will start at 4h-4h30 to have time to do first look before. After that pictures with everyone as we have a tiny wedding of 40 guesses. After 5h30 to 6h30 cocktail and then 7h00 reception. That is the plan up to now
2pm ceremony and 5pm cocktail hour except not really bc it’ll pretty much start right after the ceremony. We’ll have games, snacks and drinks for guests after the ceremony and then a more formal cocktail hour I guess will be in the tent at 5 and then supper at 6pm.
