    HI ladies...just wondering what your wedding day timelines look like. 


    Our coordinator is recommending a ceremony at 5:30 since the sun sets around 7:00, but my fiance and I just feel like that doesn't leave us much time since music has to end at 9:30pm. We will be having a cocktail hour, live entertainment for half an hour through dinner, first dance, father/daughter, mother/son dances, toasts, and cake cutting.  We probably will have to have our ceremony at 4:30???


    Would any of you care to share your wedding day timelines, or can help me please figure out mine? Thanks!

      Hi Renstar,


      My coordinator set ours for 4pm as the sun will set in Oct at 6:15 ish. She said that this was so you could get all those romantic sunset couple shots before you sit down for dinner. My guess is if you had something earlier and the sun sets at 7, then it might be a bit awkward to walk out for 20 min for the sunset shots........but might be worth while so that you can have a bit more time for everything else.

        It also depends on how many pictures you want of just you and your hubby.  If you wanted to go to a couple of locations, obviously you will need more time.  If you wanted to just do one location, it won't take as much timel.  Perhaps contact the photographer to see what they feel is best for the timeline for your pictures.
