So I'm invited to a quince and the invitation says 230 and at so so.church
dinner/reception immediately following at
Blah blah hall
At 6
I fb messaged to see which one it is so I can plan accordingly. In reply the host said" caravan and photography is immediately after dinner reception starts at 6. I'm really confus.ed. What does that mean?

    So guests aren't included in the caravan and photography?

    I don't think they are. You can stick around to confirm, but I highly doubt it. It just sounds like you have a four hour gap.

    Well church is an hour. So from 3:30 -6 is it appropriate to pre game at a local bar? I'm not sure what else to.do.

    The mass for a Quince is probably around 90 minutes (if it's Catholic...which is likely). So it's technically a two hour gap....but still.

    It sucks, but no, the guests aren't supposed to caravan with the young lady and her court to the park or wherever for pictures.

    So im confused on why she gave me that answer instead of just saying reception starts at 6.

    Whoa an hour? Mine was 15-30 minutes. I don't remember (it was 6 years ago).

    I don't think people really care what they're guests do in the time between. I went to one with a similar gap and we went to McDonald's with a bunch of other guests. Then we hung around. Some people even went home and then showed up 30 minutes before dinner started.

    Uhg. It's a gap. Go home and take a nap or drink. Those are basically your only options, unless you skip the mass.

    OK good Im making a list is things to do since I'm an out of town guest on my vacation. A gap is good for me I'll make it work.
