If DT confirms a ceremony time of 2:00pm, is it ok to start a few minutes later or are they pretty tight with the timing? I'm just not sure what time I should be putting on my invitations so that people are there and seated before the ceremony starts.
Hi Cookiemunchkin (love your user name btw!)
Why don't you just put on your invitation- "ceremony to begin promptly at 2pm". If everyone is staying at the resort- they shouldn't be late, they just have to walk on over!! We got married on the beach next to the seaside grill- so when everyone was arriving we just spread the word that they should meet AT the seaside grill at 330p (my ceremony started at 4p), no one was late except for me....
My mom and mother-in-law told me I HAD to be late (I'm a very prompt person) so they made me wait about 6-7 minutes before I headed down to the beach, so I was a little late! haha
They CAN'T start with out the bride!! so whatever! don't worry about it- they'll start when you get there!
(there was a wedding after mine though, so we did have to vacate the beach ASAP, so don't be TOO late)
