Getting Ready Time for Guests Question....
I'm wondering if I have left enough time for my guests to get ready at the hotel pre-ceremony.
We picked 5:00pm for our late October Wedding so we would have ample light for photography. As per the request of the venue and officiant we put 4:30 on the invites as the arrival time. Buffering for traffic we have then decided to have our shuttle leave the hotel at 4:00pm. Official check-in time at the hotel is 3:00pm (they say no early check-ins). That gives people one hour at most to check-in, get ready, get to the shuttle. I'm thinking I can tell the shuttle to leave at 4:15 for the people running late. Is one hour enough for guests staying at the hotel to get ready? Obviously not all guests will be staying at the hotel, Plus all guests who are staying at the hotel will have driven there, so last resort they can drive to the venue (not ideal).
I just need to know if I"m over thinking things now... plus my invites are already printed up with 4:30 arrival time
