Time of wedding... need advice

Hello ladies, 
The church we are having our wedding at booked the Time/Day combo we wanted before we could snag it, so now we either move our day to 2 weeks later at the time we want or move it back 4 hours. Nothing else is booked yet so it doesn't really matter, but what do you think is better:

    Our ceremony starts at 2 p.m., I do not think it would be a big deal.

    I voted for 6, but ours is at 7, so obviously I'm biased :)  I really don't think it matters!  I've been to 2 weddings these past 2 weeks and one was at noon and one was at 4.  Next weekend's wedding is at 2, so it's really what you're comfortable with.

    Well, what are you doing for the reception? How far is it from the church site? What time are you thinking of starting the reception? How many OOT people vs. locals are there?

    I'd take these questions into consideration :)

    HTH!

    Three hours for cocktails??? WOW! I would be so bored sitting around for three hours! that's a long time for your guests.  Are you expecting most of them to go to the reception and skip the ceremony?  I'm sorry, but that just makes for a long day.

    What month are you getting married? I would check sunset times and base the ceremony around that.. the best time to take pictures would be about one hour before the sun sets... everything will look more beautiful in what photographers refer to as "magical lighting" 

    Whatever time you choose if you would like outdoor pictures I would make sure that you have time to take them in that one hour time frame... 

    Good Luck!
