9 /9.30 should be fine -what time do your band start? I'd rather have people coming a bit late, than landing in during desert iykwim :o0

They say allow about three hours for the meal and speches so if you're sitting at 5.30 say 8.30 - most people will be a little late anyway in case things run over
