    I just wanted to say, if your invites say 6pm start, your ceremony will probably not actually start until 6:10-6:15.  I would not expect the processional to start before the time on your invitation.  When guests read 6pm, they assume processional will start at 6, not that the talking portion of the ceremony will start at that time.  AND, guests are late, if you say 6, most will get there by 5:45, but many will get there at 6 and then it takes them a little time to find a seat, etc.  So while your ceremony may actually start on time, I always think it is better to error on the side of caution and build a little extra time into your timeline.
