My fiance and I ordered invitations the other day, and spent a lot of money on them so we won’t be ordering new ones. However, as I’ve thought about it more we probably wouldn’t have needed so much time between the end of our ceremony and dinner. So just asking for thoughts on how we can make our guests the most comfortable possible with this timeline:
Wedding Mass 2pm to about 3:15/3:30
4pm Social Hour (with wine and beer and snacks)
The reception place is about 10 minutes away. We’ll just spread the word that it will be open right after the wedding.
My thought is we probably would have been fine with a 5pm dinner (we’re taking pictures in between but it shouldn’t take too long). However since we wrote 5:30 dinner on the invitations, my thought is that we would just come in around 5 or a little after for our entrance with our wedding party, and then greet some guests before dinner starts since we’re going to be doing table visits instead of a receiving line. Then we would have dinner be served promptly at 5:30.
Thoughts? Any other ideas?
We also have space outside so I was thinking of putting a couple of lawn games out and maybe even a couple games inside in a basket just for something different for people to do.
