My wedding is on the 12th in Ohio so it'll get darker a bit earlier. I have no idea when! The ceremony was going to be at 4:30 P.M. and then the reception immediately following but that would make the reception end at 10 and that's just way to early, especially when the open bar would end at 9:30 P.M. so we do not want that.
We then wanted the ceremony at 5:30 then the reception following at 6 for cocktail hour but we can't do that either because another couple having their reception in the same building will be having their guests come at 6 pm. Which I am mad because we booked first and I thought we would have been asked first but anyway.
Now we only have two options, to have it early which we absolutely do not want or to have our reception cocktail hour start at 6:45 PM. Doesn't that seem late? Dinner wouldn't be until 7:30 if we did that.
I am mostly worried about it being light after the ceremony for family pictures etc. Luckily we will be seeing eachother before the ceremony for all of those pictures.
What do you guys think? When is your ceremony time?
