When I was a young bride I got married at a ballroom facility. We had a 4 hour reception. It was over and we never knew what happened. The photographers took all of our time away. There were non stop photographs, We danced a few dances and ate our dinner very quickly. The whole thing was a blur.
I allow 10- 12 hours for your special day. You can come and get ready here. Have the ceremony, cocktails, dinner dancing and still get plenty of photographs. Typically brides arrive at 10:00 AM and the event is over by 10:00 PM.
That might sound like a lot but it goes so quickly. Its better to have more time then not enough. People will always be late. Its not unusual that things don't start on time so have a buffer.
