We're getting married next month and have just had the final time line of the day through from the venue.
Wedding is at 2pm then drinks reception and photos from 2:30 with the sit down for the wedding breakfast at 4:15 and the evening reception starting at 7:15.
The guests will get prosecco at 2:30, wine on the tables at dinner and prosecco for the toast. We are paying for the bar.
The venue want to open the bar at 2:30 when the ceremony ends. Am I right about being worried about this? Admittedly I've not been to many weddings but the ones I've been to have only had an open bar in the evening for the reception before that you had to pay yourself.
Whilst cost is a factor I don't want my guests getting hammered before dinner and impacting the speeches etc.
What's the best thing to do here?
