How Long Between The Ceremony And Reception?

Posted on Posted in News

And other burning questions for brides looking for the best wedding cars Cheshire has to offer.

Planning the timing for the special day can be one of the most stressful parts of your wedding. You want to make sure people are fed and watered, and don’t want them hanging around for too long, but you also want to make sure that a traffic jam doesn’t spell disaster and lead to people being left behind on your wedding day.

Think about this particular crunch points to decide what is best for you:

How long will it take people to travel?

This is all down not only to the distance between the two, but also how au fait your guests are with the local area and how easy the venue is to find. Be honest with yourself if you are getting married in a rural backwater with no signal, over an hour from where any of you live, and plan accordingly.

Take a practice run, or preferably get someone who doesn’t know where it is to do a practice run to see how long it takes them to do the journey.  You should have staff ready to welcome guests for this length of time after your ceremony, but allow at least an hour and half for all your guests to arrive before the wedding breakfast is served

Obviously if you are having your ceremony and reception at the same venue then you can leave it up to the staff to manage the transition seamlessly.
