Why even bother?


I didn't put the times on our invites at all.


I'm including it in their OOT bags (a timeline of events).


No one needs to know the ceremony/reception time until they get there anyway.

I thought 6:00 was in the evening.. not afternoon?


You could always put "Reception to follow"


What do you want them to do for the 1.5 hours between the ceremony and reception? Are you hosting a cocktail hour or will people just chill?

We used the Boarding Pass templates ... so it was 5 pages of info ... but this is really the only specifics we gave (except for travel agent info and resort name). We added our wedding website url and keep that up-to-date with specifics.


Please join family and friends

I don't think you need to include the time, and worst case, you could just say something like "beach reception that evening".

    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now. 
    • I think that would be a great idea. I have tried it once and loved it.!
    • That's really sweet. I am sure she would love that.!!
