FH and I are having our reception at M&T Stadium next June. We haven't booked a church yet but the one we're looking at (Catholic) will do ceremonies at 3 and 5:30. We're not doing a full mass, so it'll only be half an hour or so.
I don't want our reception to start at 4 - we've been planning a night wedding - but it's not far from the church to M&T - about 10 minutes barring traffic. But I don't know how our guests would feel about an hour gap in between.
And consensus seems to be that 5:30 is too late.
Those of you who've gotten married in the Catholic churches downtown, how have you dealt with this?
