Wedding Reception Etiquette: Timing a Dessert Wedding Reception?


I want an evening wedding, but I don't want to serve dinner. What would be an appropriate time to schedule the wedding if I just served cake, nuts, mints, etc.?


A dessert wedding reception usually begins at 9 or 10 p.m., well after the typical dinner hours, so you'll want to schedule the ceremony for no earlier than 8 p.m. Just be sure to let guests know on the wedding invitation that dinner won't be served! Something like "Please join us after the ceremony for dessert" will do just fine -- that way they'll know to get in a square meal beforehand.
