    On my invitation do I put the time people should arrive at the hotel or the time the ceremony will actually start?

    We are planning for a 6pm ceremony - do I write "6 o'clock in the evening" or "half past five o'clock"

    What did you guys do? Unlike an AI wedding, I doubt many of our guests will be staying in our hotel so i don't want everyone to be late but I also want to do it in the traditional manner... thoughts?

      In mexico we're known for unpunctuality so I'd put 5 o' clock hahahahaha
      Though, if you're going to provide transportation you should put the exact timing.. (15-20 mins before for mexicans)

        rofl Anny. I wanted to say the same thing, but I thought- Anny's on here, I better not make any comments about late Mexicans- but you did it for me! lol

        I would tend to put the actual ceremony time in the traditional manner on the invitation, but I might put something on the welcome letter (or whatever else you're sending out ahead of time) about coming early...

                On my invitations I put the actual time, but in the email newsletter I sent out I reminded people that we would be starting ON TIME so we wouldn't lose the sunset. Amazingly, we did actually start right on time and everyone was there.

                  On our invitation I put the actual ceremony start time. I plan to give everybody a welcome letter that will ask them to arrive at the hotel 30 minutes early to enjoy a welcome cocktail...I figure that will be a nice bribe :)
