Have you been to a wedding or are having a wedding where everything takes place at the same venue?

& How long did that wedding/will your entire wedding last? Smiley smile

    Same location, technically 6pm-Midnight (even though I expect many guests will leave earlier)

    Ours is from 3:30-10:30pm

    (Sun sets early in winter)

    So we'll be doing first dance, cake cutting, etc. Before dinner so it's not a super early dinner

    Ours will be in the same location - timeline 5-10pm.

    A friend of mine just did the same, as well. And some people (younger crowd and singles) were there til 10, but most started to leave around 9-930.

    Our ceremony & reception were at the same place. Ceremony started at 1pm, reception ended at 6:30. If I had a time machine I go back and add another hour because it went by so fast.

    Thank you for all of your responses! Feel free to keep them coming!

    Ours is 4:30-10:30 pm as of right now. Trying to figure out if that's a good amount of time or if we should add another half hour? Our dancing right now is only two hours. & I wouldn't want the majority gone by the end of the reception. Smiley sad
