    Hi

    Just wondered what time of day everyone is getting married? I'm torn between 1pm or 2pm!?
    We are have a civil ceromony with a reading so I know it won't be a long ceremony but don't want my day to be rushed either!?
    Any advice would be great
    Thanks

    We have pulled our church service forward to 1.30 from 2pm because we needed more time to get to the reception venue.

    My friend had a civil ceremony at 11am and we stayed in the same place for the whole day. It was a beautiful day but it was very long because the service was so short so there was quite a bit of waiting around. Just something to think of. X

    We are getting married at 1pm but it's a church service so will last longer. But I have been thinking about moving it back to 12.30 as I think even 1 is quite late to start our day together if you know what I mean. We won't see each other before hand

    Either time would be good. We got married at 3pm, it was lovely as no rushing about in the morning, had plenty of time to get hair done etc etc etc.

    We had it booked at the church for 1.30pm but I was 20 minutes late.
    Either time you are thinking of would work.

    Thanks everyone, we have a magician booked to come at 6 so I'm not sure if we will get everything done with the ceremony, pics, drinks reception, and the meal finished if we get married at 2!?!?
    Thanks for your advice

    Sit down and write timings down for everything you want to fit into the day, that will give you an idea of the best time to start the ceremony.

    We are getting married at 3:30 and our meal starts at 6 so I imagine you would be fine! But then we are at the same venue for everything

    We are getting married at 12pm. It's a church ceremony so will be about 45 mins then photos after. The venue is about 30 mins away so hoping to get there for 1:45/2pm. Hour of welcome drinks and photos then sit down meal at 3:30pm.

    We're getting married at 2pm with a church ceremony then straight onto the venue for reception and party.
    I'm assuming everyone's already had lunch before the wedding by that time and we'll be opening the buffet around 5-6pm depending on how long the toasts and speeches go on for :)

    We're getting married at 2. We could have had any time we wanted but I asked the venue what their preferred time was and they said 2, so that's what we went with :) xx

    We're getting married at 3pm with the meal starting at 5-5:30. Our ceremony isn't going to take long and we don't have a lot of group photos planned as we prefer natural and candids. Evening reception at 7pm.

    We're getting married at 1, though it should have been 2 really as we've got makeup and hair for 5 of us that needs to be done. Hairdresser is starting at 8:30 a.m. and we have to leave at 12:15 to get down to the Waterside and get on the boat to arrive. Would like for it to have been a bit more leisurely.

    How many people do you need to get ready before the ceremony, and how far away from where the ceremony is being held are you getting ready? xx

    Our registry office wedding is booked for 11 am then having lunch at a restaurant afterwards then our blessing is scheduled for 4pm which is a few days later for around 35 - 40 people. We are classing the blessing as the actual wedding, the registry is just all the legal stuff.
