Guest Complaint #1: Your timing stinks.

Huge time gaps between the ceremony and the reception (you know, the ones where the ceremony starts at noon, but the party isn't until 7 p.m.) are annoying because you're often leaving us in the middle of nowhere with absolutely nothing to do. We don't want to kill time at a restaurant because we're hoping you'll feed us well at your reception. Same reason we're not going to hit a bar! And there's only so much lingering we can do at a coffee shop or a bookstore...in our dressy clothes! We'd much rather head straight to the party after the "I dos."
