    I hope you bride/groom's to be can help me.

    I'm getting married at 1.30pm and the wedding breakfast will be served around 4/4.30pm.

    I'm worried the gap between the ceremony and food will result in bored guests.

    I'm getting married in November so it's likely to be cold and raining outside.

    Any ideas on keeping guests entertained?

    Depending on your budget and whether the venue has a room for your guests to wait in, possibly a singer or a magician.

    My cousins ceremony was at 2 and her food served at 5 so we had aaaaages to wait. All she had was a caricature come round and draw us and had little pots of ice cream for everyone. It wasn't much but it was in the middle of nowhere so it was a little boring as there was literally nothing to see/look at or go to. The first hour is normally pictures etc so you really only need to provide entertainment for an hour after that... which isn't long so I don't think you need to worry too much about that. Your guests will probably just mingle for the hour and chat and things so honestly i wouldn't worry about it. They might just get a little hungry. If you have children there, you can always put a few lawn games in the venue or a small craft table (nothing that will dirty them up though!! lol) hope you sort something out :)
