invite question- again!

Sorry for another post about invites, but this is turning into a bigger deal than I thought.Did you put the start time of the ceremony on the invite, or the time guests should arrive?Do guests know to arrive early if you put the start time?My chapel opens its doors at 2pm, I planned on starting the ceremony at 2:30. Any suggestions?

    People go both ways on that.  If your ceremony started at 2:15, I think it would be maybe okay to put 2:00 as the start time.  But if the ceremony starts at 2:30, I wouldn't put 2... some people will certainly arrive even earlier with the assumption that the ceremony starts at 2, and you don't want them to be waiting around for 45 minutes (or longer if the ceremony starts late).  I've been in that situation many times, and it SUCKS as a guest.  I'd put the real start time.  These things usually start late anyway.

    put 2:30....people know that if it's starting at 2:30 to get there early.  If you put 2 and don't start to 2:30, people will be annoyed that you told them 2.

    you should put the START TIME.  do not lie, do not think you know when people should arrive.  as a guest, i am always early and do not need to sit there an extra 30 minutes because you think i'll be late.

    Agree, put the start time of the ceremony.
