We are just starting to plan our wedding. We have found the perfect venue for the reception, but are having trouble with the logistics for the church. Most of our guests are traveling 2-3 hours to come to the wedding. The latest the church can have our wedding on Saturday is at 1pm, which means many of our guests won't get to check into their hotels until after the ceremony. If it were me, I'd prefer to freshen up after a 3 hour car ride before going to the church.
If we do a Friday evening wedding then our guests have to take a day off of work to travel up to NH and then check into their hotel and get to the church by 4:00pm.
Not sure what is best here... any suggestions??
