How much time did people allow for pictures between your ceremony & then dinner?

I am hoping to have the ceremony at 3:30-4pm, then have the reception at 6pm. That leaves time for the pics in between and all the guests can get freshened up and go have a drink after they get their pics taken. We are having a Nov wedding too, and that also works so that there is still good light for the pics before the sun goes down at about 5:45pm.

 

Our friends that got married in Cuba a couple years ago got married at 2-2:30 and the reception was at 6pm. After we were done in the pics, we went to freshen up and then all met up and had a couple drinks before heading over for supper. It worked out good.

We had about 90 minutes.

 

After the ceremony we had cocktails in the garden. Our guests could mingle but were still close while we were taking pictures.

 

There was about 15 minutes for people to freshen up before headding off to dinner.

We are doing the majority of our pictures together before the ceremony. That way we can have those first few moments of seeing eachother for the fist time, on camera. We are also having a smaller wedding (20ppl) and a very small wedding party, so the remaining pics after the ceremony will be fairly quick.

We are planning ceremony on the beach at 5. Cocktail reception on the patio overlooking the beach while we take pics from 5:30-7 and reception at 7. I am hoping I am doing it right, but this is what my photographer and friend assisting my planning that just got married recommended.

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
