We are having a Catholic ceremony that starts at 2pm (they hold mass at 4:30 Saturdays so it can't be later).
Our reception site is about a 20 min drive from the church. If our ceremony takes around an hour (including receiving line if we choose to do that), that will still mean they arrive at the reception at like 3:30ish...so early!
Have any of you had this issue? Do we have a super early social hour, and an earlier dinner at like 5pm? As a guest, I hate when there are big gaps in between the ceremony and reception, so I don't want to make guests drive around wondering what to do in between. Any suggestions? Did this work out fine for any of you in the same situation?
