Mrs Tif did a dress change, but not until like halfway through our reception.lol yeah true.. oh.. the bride changed into a tighter fitting dress to do their dance routine, and then the photographer yelled at her for doing so, so she changed BACK into the wedding gown for the rest of the day. lolPhotos.the wedding party arrives (back from their limo ride around town I guess).
Because they must be taken immediately following the ceremony when you're emotionally drained and everyone is waiting. Would be crazy to do them literally any other day.
That two-building thing, I don't know. That's pretty tough. First off, Sunday am timing would red flag the thing. We had our wedding on a Friday night because it was literally 1/4 the price for the same venue on a Saturday, and we had our pick of dates. But we knew going in that that timing would limit the size of the guest population, which was fine by us, as we only invited maybe 80 people and had a final guest tally in the low 70s.
If you can't afford to have all your intended guests in the same physical space for the reception, you're inviting too many people. It's a very east coast/mid-Atlantic ethos, but 200+ wedding guests is just silly to me, unless you're of a status where your nuptials garner media attention. Tbh, once I found out I wouldn't be in the same building as the wedding party, I'd have left immediately. Like, gift-on-the-table-butt-in-the-car kind of immediately. "Here's your stand mixer, enjoy your day."
