We got married almost 2 weeks ago. It was truly an amazing day! But seriously it flew by and of course now I'm just reliving the day in my head. One thing that bothered me was that so many of our guests left early.
We had around 75 guests. Our ceremony was 4:30-5:00 PM and cocktail hour right after. We did family photos and joined our cocktail hour, after I got bustled, around 5:30. 6:00 PM FH and I get introduced, first dance, and my mom's speech. Then dinner. We probably cut our cake around 7:15 PM and then did parent dances and people started leaving around 7:30-7:45. We had the venue until 10:30.
I'm kind of sad about it. The only factor that I think as to why is because our venue was considered out of town and was anywhere from 45 minutes to 4 hours away for people. We had a hotel and shuttle but even people staying at the hotel left early. We ended up with just 6 of us on the shuttle with around 40 people staying at the hotel. We had an open bar with beer and wine and seltzers and we had a DJ that played a variety of music. I guess it felt like people were just there to eat and dip out. Some didn't even say bye to me.
Did any of you all have a lot of guests leave Early? If so, did it bother you? Or am I just dwelling too much on something that shouldn't matter?
