This is the timeline my photographer sent me for my wedding that starts at 4 just so you have an idea.  

This is for 6 hour of photography but my reception ends at 10 pm. 


3:00 PM - 4:00 PM | Getting Ready
4:00 PM - 4:30 PM | Ceremony
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM | Cocktails + Sunset Portraits
5:30 PM - 7:30 PM | Dinner + Toasts
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM | Dancing + Reception Fun

I will be going over about an hour and would have to pay the photographer for an extra hour :(


1:00 - 2:00 Getting Ready

2:00 - 2:30 Ceremony

3:30 - 4:30 Cocktail Hour/Pictures

5:00 - 8:00 Dinner/Reception on La Barcaza Wedding Boat.

I don't know what happens after this. I may end up either extending the boat or everyone go to the disco at the hotel. (Not sure if there is even a disco there). I guess I should check that out.

Thanks for starting this thread! My ceremony will be at 4 which is kind of early for me!

This is my timeline for now - still toying with it.


My ceremony is early at 2pm, but it's in December so I'm okay with that (sunset at 5:10pm). It also gives us a ton of time for pics which is important to us. We're also planning on paying to extend our reception for 3 more hours than what is included :). We hired our photographer for 8-10 hours, and our videographer will be there for 8 hours probably



9:00 AM– 12:45 PM   | Hair and Makeup. Bridesmaids should be dressed by 12:45pm

1 PM – 1:45 PM         | Both sides getting Ready / Putting on Bride’s dress shots
2:00 PM – 2:30 PM    | Ceremony
2:30 PM – 5:30 PM    | Pictures w/ family, guests, wedding party, bride and groom pics, food and break somewhere in there

5:00 PM – 6:00 PM    | Cocktails
6:00 PM – 11:00 PM  | Dinner, Dancing + Reception Fun

We put a break in between the ceremony and reception. We figured we're all staying at the resort, so people can go take a nap, change, eat, do whatever they want in between. We don't want our reception to finish too early
