The time of your Wedding Ceremony can make a HUGE impact on your Reception.
By Jeff Hayes
Did you know that the time of your Wedding Ceremony can have a direction impact on the success of your Wedding Reception? This answer may surprise you.
As your guests are planning their events on your wedding day, they will either plan something after your reception or they won't. If your ceremony time is too early in the day it will allow them to plan another event or function after yours. If so, then you may find that many of them may not stay as long as you have hoped.
Ask yourself these questions; 1) If I were attending a wedding at 3:00 pm, would it be the last event that I planned that day? or 2) If I were attending a wedding at 5:00 pm, would it be the last event that I planned that day? See the difference?
If you want them to stay late in the evening then keep this in mind while you are setting your ceremony time.
