    We're planning a 1 p.m. ceremony and are looking for suggestions on how to handle the reception. Claudia, the coordinator at Dreams has suggested a brunch-style reception, immediately following the ceremony. Has anyone experienced that? Is this something guests enjoy? We expect between 30 and 50 to attend.

      Welcome to the forum. Are you doing pics before or after the ceremony?

                  you will probably need at least 1 hour to have group pictures + bride and groom pictures. The rest of your guest should have something to drink and eat while you do that otherwise they will be hungry !

                  Why not have your wedding at 12:00? Then you can all have lunch between 1 and 1:30... But if you are eating outside, you will be very hot under the sun !

                    I would think guest would have an early lunch before the wedding & hors doeuvres after. What time does lunch start at the hotel? If it isn't early (11-11:30), maybe that wouldn't work. I am hypoglycemic so I'm fanatical about eatting on time. But I guess if a guest feels the same way, they could always decide to have an early lunch on their own or have a snack. It's a tricky time, but you can probably figure out something.

                    Oh, & I suggest pictures right after the wedding so you don't have to keep your hair & makeup perfect that long. But I guess you could always eat right after, touch up & then take pictures. I always feel like the photography time imediately afterwards makes a lull for guests. But, I know that's what I'll want to do because I wont be relaxed until the pictures are done.
