how much time for dancing?

Recommended Posts

here was our timeline:

6:00 ceremony- over at 6:15

6:30-7:30 cocktail hour (we took pics at this time)

7:30-8:30 dinner

8:30-8:45- cake cutting and toasts

8:45-11:00 dancing

 

well nothing ever runs on schedue and it take poeple a while to really get dancing- so i would recommend starting earlier than you would think you wanted in order to assure that you get enough time to dance and mingle at your wedding- i wish we had started earlier......

she said that sunset is at 6:30, and i'm ok w/ taking pictures before...HOWEVER i definitely don't trust her as far as i can throw her (and she may be 1000 lbs)...we're thinking about moving it up but i'm concerned about k's eyes (very sensitive and i dont want him wearing sunglasses during ceremony and he can't wear contacts)...for the 20 min, he may have to deal!

hrm, sunset about 6:16 in cabo (closest choice to pv)...maybe make the ceremony 5:30/5:45, cocktail hr 6-7ish, dinner 7-8ish, dancing 8-11ish....so that's 4 hrs for the dj, and 1 hr for the trio...excellent - THANKS!!!!

Good thread. My ceremony is at 3pm. I'm planning for the ceremony to be over by 3:30pm ... so I'm thinking that we'll do cocktails til 4:30-5 while we're getting pics taken. Dinner at 5. I guess we'll go til 6:30 with dinner/cake toasts and then start the dancing til 9pm. At 9 ... that will be early enough for the older guests to turn in and the younger guests to hit the disco/casino. But, we've also thought about just doing appetizers as well since its so costly for a full dinner or buffett for so many guests at our AI. Anyone not doing a full dinner?

Yeah with a february wedding, it will get dark earlier. If it says sunset is at 6:16 then you shouldn't get married then it should be before.

 

My coordinator said that our sunset is at about 8:00pm so having the cermony at 6:30 is good. I decided to go earlier and have it at 6:00pm. So I would say you should have your ceremony at about 4:30 so that you can do that and then take pics after so that you can get some sunset pics...
