Morning? Afternoon? Evening? What time will your wedding ceremony start? Did you choose the time or was it set by your venue?

    Ceremony starts at 3pm. The venue let us choose, but since we're having a Sunday wedding, we figured an afternoon wedding would work for most people. 馃榾

    Our venue is a little different ... we have the venue from 3pm - 11:00pm - we are doing a welcome cocktail hour + before the ceremony, ceremony starts at 5:00 then right into reception.

    Starts at 4. We picked the time with the venue, working back from when we wanted the reception to end.

    Hahaha me too! How late will your reception be and are you doing a traditional sit-down dinner?

    5:00 on a Friday. We wanted to have it later since it's a Friday, we wanted to give our local guests time to get out of work and get there. 5:00 was one of the latest times that the venue would start the ceremony.

    4:00pm on a Saturday. That is the latest our Church will let us start since they have a 5:30pm Saturday Service.

    Evening! 5:30pm on a Saturday. This was the only option for our venue. Our ceremony is outdoors at a city owned garden, but the reception site is a backup in case it rains. But, if it rains we can't use the indoor venue until 5:30pm because they have a shop open up to the public until then. I wish it could have been earlier, but that's ok!

    Our ceremony starts at 6:30 on a Friday. Mostly chosen by the venue but I'm not sure I'd do it any earlier on a Friday anyway. I want people to have enough time to get there if they have to work that day
