Unavoidable Gap Between Ceremony and Reception
My fiancé and I are getting married at our parish and having the reception at the Mahler Ballroom. The parish only allows weddings at 11 and 2 so obviously we picked the 2 o'clock time. Our reception site only lets receptions start at 6. When we first put down deposits and made decisions, I didn't think the gap would be a big deal because these were both non-negotiable locations. But now, I'm getting worried. I know that as a wedding guest I wouldn't want to wait around for 3 hours.
Any suggestions? My in-laws are having their family hang at their house, but my house is far too small to house my family. Please help!
