I am having my ceremony and reception at the same location. We plan on starting the ceremony at 5:30pm.
My question to all of you- what time did you put on your invitation? Did you put the actual start time or something earlier?
I am on a tight time schedule with my cocktail hour starting at 6pm so it would be nice to have some padding on the time, but I don't want to be rude and have guests sitting around for awhile.
