      No one's replied to this in a while - but I'm curious. What do your timelines look like? So far this is what mine looks like...

       

      4:00 Ceremony on the beach

      5-6 Cocktail Hour

      6-10 Reception. 

       

      I was wondering if I should leave a little time in between the cocktail hour and reception to allow people to to settle in and find their places. I'm afraid if the reception technically begins as soon as cocktail hour is over it will take time for people to settle in and take away from our reception time. Should I leave it as it is or perhaps start reception at 6:30?

       

      Thoughts?

      Are the locations of cocktails and reception the same? or close?

       

      Personally I wouldn't worry about that unless they have a walk to a different location.  I think people will settle quickly and your MC can move stuff along.  People can sign the guestbook at various times during the night, etc.  Have them announce all of that.

       

      I would go with your original plan, you could push off the start of the reception, but you will have to pay for that time anyways, so just go with the flow!

       

      Since our cocktail hour will be where our reception is, I am hoping people will sign the guestbook and settle then so they are ready for when we arrive - is this an option for you?  

       

      Hope that helps.

      I think our timeline will go like this

      4:00pm ceremony on the beach

      Followed by champagne and a group photo on the beach

      5:30-6:30pm cocktail and appies at The Beach Bar

      7:00pm-12:00am Reception

      We have 13 kids coming so I figure some time in between the ceremony and cocktail hour is good so that they can play, snack, change...all those kid things, and we can do all our photos and then still enjoy the cocktail hour with our guests!

      We can't leave our location very easily - I had to pay for the golf cart to get our guests there!!  They can catch the Disco's shuttle to get back to their room at the end of the night.

       

      I was going to do a 3:30 pm start time, but have decided to change it to 3:00 pm in case things don't start on time - we lose sun at 5:30 pm and I want to make sure we have enough time for photos.

       

      So....

       

      3:00 pm ceremony

      3:30-4:00 pm - toast/appetizers, group photo

      4:00 - 5:00/5:30 pm - cocktail hour (?mariachi band) for guests while we do photos, then go wander to reception area and sign guestbook/mingle

      5:00/5:30 pm - 11:00 pm  dinner/reception
