Our ceremony will be in the Catholic church. We just met with the priest last night. We were told that the only time allowed for weddings is 1:00. Estimating that the ceremony will take about an hour and then about 30 minutes to clear out the church... that means everything with the ceremony will wrap up around 2:30. We do not have a venue for the reception picked out yet but the size of our town will probably only require at most 30 minutes to get to any venue that we choose. So that puts timing around 3:00. I do not want to have a reception that starts that early. I'd prefer to start around 5 or 5:30. I have no idea what to do to remedy this. I guess I could just suck it up and do a 3:30 reception but that just seems too early. We could also do our pictures after the ceremony but that still does not prevent the guests from sitting around twiddling their thumbs waiting for us. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank you so much for any advice in advance!
