We tried to not have a gap between the cocktail hour and reception, but the resort couldn’t accommodate us. I really wanted the ceremony to be at 5 with a cocktail hour and reception to follow, but our ceremony is as 2pm, cocktail hour is 2:30-3:30 and the reception (dinner and dancing) is 6pm-10pm. Any other DW brides have this issue? Any ideas to fill the gap? All 70 guests are at the same resort so some people have suggested just letting them have a siesta for the 2.5hr gap. This is just everyone’s vacation and I hate taking up the whole day without having something for them to do.
