Picture and cocktail hour


Our wedding will start at 5:00pm on May 8th. Should we take photos before or after the ceremony (which will probably about half hour)?

We will have a one hour cocktail hour when guests enjoy drinks and hors d'oeuvres. If we take photos before the ceremony, then what should we do during this one hour? I know this question may be silly, but just wated to know your suggestions.

    Take your pictures earlier. Enjoy the cocktail hour with your guests as PP suggested. Mingle, greet people, thank them for joining you on your big day, enjoy.

    I would definitely do pictures before the ceremony.  Best light for photographers is mid-afternoon, unless you want a "dusky" look to your photos.

    Do pictures before the cermony. If you have the limo taking you from the ceremony to the reception, why not take a longer limo ride around town with your wedding party? Or, as everyone else suggested, enjoy the cocktail hour with your guests. :)

    ditto on visitng with your guests.  We did cocktail hour with our 100 guests and I still didn't feel like I got to visit with everyone.
