Most guests will try to follow the tradition of waiting until the bride and groom leave before they can make tracks - so maybe you could quietly let those people who you are worried about that you don't plan on leaving early and that they shouldn't feel like they had to stay.
I was at a wedding once where the couple planned to stay til the very end....but failed to tell everyone! Me, and lots of others, sat around for hours just wanting to go home!!! I think it depends on your guests....
That's brilliant advice, Scarlett - thanks heaps for that. We probably wouldn't have thought to do that but it makes so much sense. We've set up a wedding website with all the details and we'll keep updating it as and when we make decisions etc so we'll definitely put it on there. But I think we'll maybe get the groomsmen to pop round to each table during the meal and let everyone know that we'll stay till the end, in case anyone wants to arrange a taxi to get home earlier.
Ooh, this is such a good way to get great advice and opinions. Love it!!!! Thank you!
