My invitation states 5:00pm as the start time, how and when does the ceremony begin?
Good question....whether you are having a black tie wedding, or a rustic chic barn wedding, it is never okay to keep guests waiting. Here is the rule. The seating of both mothers and even the grandmothers is considered the beginning of the processional. Therefore, if your invite says 5:00pm, mothers and grandmothers should be seated at 5:00pm, signalling the beginning of your wedding ceremony!
