        I have a timeline as well for our WC but I haven't shared it with her yet. I'm having a hard time letting go of the control. :-)

          our ceremony is at 4, I'm hoping to drag it out til almost 430

          I'd like to have cocktail hour start at 5, so from 430-5 do some group shots, and then we'll do our alone pics while our guests enjoy cocktail hour

          Dinner will start at 6 I think

          I'm really unorganized!

            I am guessing two hours after the ceremony. My ceremony and reception are so far apart that there will be no cocktail hour.

              see I thought 630 for dinner might be better too, but I wasn't sure if that was pushing it, thats what I'm going to do too, you made up my mind for me

                we had about an hour between the ceremony and reception. most of our guests either relaxed and had drinks in thie reception area or went up to their rooms to rest for a little bit. otherwise, i would say that family pictures took about 15 minutes (our photographers had asked us to provide them with a list of family groupings to take pics of) and then maybe like 15-20 minutes max for the two of us afterwards--which was more than enough time. and then we just relaxed for awhile before the reception! also, we didn't have any bridal party or groomsmen, so ours was likely quicker than other post-ceremony shoots, i'm guessing. hope this helps!

                  4:30-5:30 Photos with family/wedding party + group photo (all guests)
                  immediately to follow well wishes- romantic sunset photos for couple

                  First off, this is WAY easier than you think, if handled by a true professional.

                  If you want to have a group shot, TELL THEM prior to the ceremony date that you want everybody on the beach prior to the cocktail hour but just after the congrats and hugs you will get after walking back up the isle. you and your photog should be on the same plane with this. If he or she is one their game, they will make an announcement and call EVERYBODY to a location close by and set up the shot...likely shoot 5 or 6 frames to get 1 good one and then all your guests (except fam & bridal party) can jet to have drinks.

                  My formals are 10 minuets on average. 2 min per group. (usually 3-5 shots per group to get 1 good one)... You shouldn't need to budget 1 hour for them, for sure! If so, get shots with your immediate family on each group The group first has siblings & g-parents and then whittles down to mum's & pops... then switch sides and do it again.. Her family then his Fam. If everybody knows whats up, then its ON. Then, a few minutes with the bridal party ( a few poses )...and BAM, they go have drinks. EASY as it should be. Then, the residual time is spent with b&g chillin on the location, hot shots in and around the resort while the group is chillin on cocktail hour... If it were us, you would end up chillin with them on a few cocktails...

                  Answer to your question: 30 minutes MAX to have fam & bridal party away from coctail hour.

                  Formals are easy, and if planned, easy does it. I am a firm believer of simple groupings. B&G in all of them. Pre ceremony formals with bride & groom apart with their respective groups help minimize the post planning :)

                  Its all about an organized pro's plan and the wedding going along with it :)

                  hope this helps :)
                  Cheers,
