Hi, I am having a Friday wedding. The ceremony and the reception site are about 15 minutes away, and the reception site and hotel are about 5 minutes from each other, so everything is nice and close.
I'm not sure when to have our ceremony begin...we're thinking cocktail hour at 5:30, everyone seated around 6:30, dinner at 6:45-7ish. We are not seeing each other before the wedding, so I want to be sure to have time for lots of photos in between, but also don't want to have TOO much time (aka, huge inconvenience for our guests). We are having a shuttle van run from the hotel to the reception site, but since it's so close that will not take long.
I was thinking having the wedding start at 3 (we're having a catholic ceremony, but not mass). No receiving line. Just photos and party bus time in between!
Any help or advice is much appreciated!
