    From the start of the ceremony to the end of the reception, 6 hours! Plus an after party!

    Our timeline isn't nailed down yet, but we're thinking about 6.5 hours.

    From the start to the end of the ceremony, about 20 minutes. Quick and easy!

    Including a gap is actually a great idea!

    Nope, just going out to brunch. Everyone will pay for their own order, lol.

    I know a lot of people are against the gaps but it takes 30 minutes in good traffic between the two. It could take an hour!

    Our ceremony and reception are at the same venue. Ceremony starts at 5pm and we have the venue til midnight but I doubt we will be there all those hours. Or maybe just maybe time will just fly by.

    Ceremony starts 2:30pm and reception ends 11ish. Long Catholic ceremony and a 10 minute drive between venues and then plenty of time to party! haha. All of my family weddings are that long!
