Is a one hour time gap between ceremony and canapes ok?Anna A
We are looking to have our ceremony at 3pm, and then canapes to start at 5pm, this means there will be a one hour gap from 4pm-5pm. Looking to have both the ceremony and reception at the same venue. Is it acceptable? To entertain guests, there will be a photobooth along with a few platters of snacks, and a bar tab on soft drinks and coffee/tea. Alcohol will be available at 5pm once canapes start. Or if they prefer, they can explore the venue gardens and take some photos.
We recently held a wedding ceremony followed by a reception with about one hour gap between the two. However, we did fill the hour with canapes and drinks so the guests were not waiting around. This worked really well and added to the wedding celebration atmosphere.
