what time is your ceremony? and reception?

we have our contracts and are about to sign them and pay the deposit, but before we lock into times, i wanted to see what you all were doing.

right now, we're planning for a 3pm ceremony, with dinner starting at 6pm.  we figure we will open up the bar at 5pm or 5:30pm, so that guests have something to do shortly after the ceremony while we're taking pictures on a strip tour (although, if we only have a few guests, we'll invite everyone on the strip tour - depends on RSVPs).

do these times seem ok?

what time is your ceremony?  and what time is your dinner/reception afterwards?

    That's pretty much exactly what we are doing! Ceremony is at 3:30, reception is at 6:00. We will have our strip tour from 4-6 so we plan on getting there right when it starts.

    Our ceremony will be at 5pm at MB---our reception will follow at Maggiano's at 7:30pm---we're banking on about a two hour gap from the end of ceremony until the start of the reception.

    I am having a 7pm ceremony at Caesars and an 8pm reception at Maggianos.  I only have a small group of guests, so I don't think it will take long for a couple group photos after the ceremony and then on to the restaurant.  If we don't get to Maggianos exactly at 8pm I am not going to worry about it, as the whole group will be together.  We are doing a photo tour before the ceremony.

    We had a 7pm ceremony with an 8pm reception at Maggiano's.  I had the appetizers set up on a buffet for our guests to enjoy while they waited for us to get there.  I think we arrived around 8:30.

    Our ceremony is at 5pm at the Wynn, and the reception is at Maggiano's at 7pm. We will basically have 1.5 hours or so for photos... and I'm still not completely sure if that's enough time. Oh well!

    Our ceremony is at MB at 5 pm and dinner is immediately following at 6 pm, also in MB. We're doing our strip tour after dinner- from 8-10 pm (maybe 11), complete with a party bus so anyone who wants to come along can. I didn't want to have a time gap in between the ceremony and dinner because I didn't want everyone to have to find a way to entertain themselves and have to wait around for us. Doing the pictures afterwards ensures we can take our time and not inconvenience anyone, plus it's like an after party before our real after party :)

    ok.  i was worried about our gap a little bit, but that seems to be the norm.  i figure Vegas has enough going on that no one will have to look too hard to find something to do in between.  maybe we'll even pass out some Caesars chips with the fans at the ceremony as a "first hand is on us" gesture for the wait.  and we'll try to keep the gap between 1 - 1.5 hours

    thanks for making me feel better.  we signed the contracts and will be emailing them back tomorrow, after my fiance scans them into a PDF (i'm way too dumb with computers to try to figure that out!)

    Our ceremony starts at 530 pm  at PH  and the reception will start at 730pm.. 

    It gives us time for our strip tour pics and everyone to get to the reception site. I think  it will be fine with that hour or so gap between.... There's plenty for people to do until then :)

    11 a.m. Ceremony
    12 noon Cocktial Hour
    1 p.m. Lunch Reception

    Everything is at the Wynn.  We figure the bridal party doens't have to be at the cocktail party so it'll give us a little over and hour for pictures.

    7:30 Vista Suite ceremony, reception immediately following.  We're doing most of the pictures pre-ceremony, we'll grab the family formals while the guests are getting their  food.
    This is a neglected planning bio.
    This is a belated married bio, with no reviews yet because I'm lazy.

    Sometimes I feel like people think that brides are delicate little flower princesses who get all dressed up and pretty for one special moment of their dreams, when really they're just normal people who just happen to be getting married. Things shouldn't have to be sugar-coated for grown-ass women. -mstar284
