So we are having our wedding at the Summerall Chapel at the Citadel. We have our date set but we need to pick our time for the ceremony. I have always assumed that I would have a 5 or 5:30 pm wedding.... but the Chapel only does 4 pm or 6 pm (because they may have several in a day). We definitely want an evening reception and for it to be a great party that we can enjoy. My concern with 4 pm is that with our short ceremony (30 min or so) the reception will be early and not seem as much as of a party as we would like. However, my mom brought up the fact that 6 pm may mean the reception starts kind of late (after pictures) and we have a short party (with many Charleston places having rules of when to be out).
Any advice on this?? Thanks!
