    Ours is this Saturday! I am excited for it but also ready for it to be done!

    We can get it at 10 AM to set up (it's the Eagles club so they aren't so formal in their rules)

    We went with 5 hours:
    5:00-5:45 apps and people arrive
    6:00-7:00 Buffet dinner with our pic slideshow and ceremony video
    7:-7:15 first dance and cake cutting
    7:15-7:30 thank yous to family/friends
    7:30-10:00 dancing!

        Ours went from 6:30-11. We had a cocktail hour from 6:30-8, then moved to the dinner/dancing room, where we did our introductions, had dinner, ate our cupcakes, and had a great time!

          We're having a very traditional AHR, with hors d'ouevres, drinks, DJ, etc. We have the hall for 24 hours (midnight to midnight which isn't exactly handy for clean up so we're paying them to do that, and I can't say I'm terribly sorry about that situation), but I scheduled the reception for 4 hours, mostly to keep costs on food and drinks down to something manageable. :-)

            I have my venue from 5 to 10, but have the option to extend it to 11. We are doing cocktail hour from 5 to 6, then buffet dinner, then dancing.

              Well, we are having it at my Dad's art gallery that he owns so we are not limited on time. However, the invites that were just sent out do say "6:30-8:30". We are just doing beer/wine + hourdeurves (however the HECK you spell that!!! LOL), but we're also trying to squeeze in our legal ceremony. Personally I don't think 6:30-8:30 is enough time (my Grandma planned it tho - lol)... I'm thinking we'll stay and dance and stuff til at least 10... I think 4 hrs is plenty of time.

              We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!

              We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

                We are doing ours from 8-12 at a local Cuban restaurant. It is semi-formal. I am not even sure that I want to wear my wedding gown so I am thinking of getting a short, more casual one. We are having a buffet, beer, wine and Sangria, and the restaurant has a bar right outside the hall so if anybody wants to drink something else, it's right there. I have not ask about the set up time but since ours is the only one that day I don't think we'll have a problem with that the manager is so nice but I'll ask anyways. We are also planning on getting a dj and showing a slideshow of our pics.
