What Does Your Wedding Day Timeline Look Like?

Recommended Posts

I added to a thread on this topic but it's in a random place on the site so I'm posting again here lol Was curious as to what your timelines look like? I was wondering if I should leave a little time between cocktail hour and reception to allow people settle in to the reception area. Right now it's as follows:

 

4:00 Beach Ceremony

5-6 Cocktail Hour - During this time I'm assuming I will be off taking photos

6-10 Reception ( I will work on this specific timeline later on)

 

My fear is that with cocktail hour and reception in 2 different areas and reception starting the second cocktail hour ends, people will take time to settle in and find their place and this will take away from the actual reception fun time. Maybe I should put a half hour in between?

Do you think your ceremony will take a whole hour? I think they are usually done in like 20 minutes - so maybe your cocktail hour goes 4:30-5:30 and that gives you some buffer time for people to mosey over to the reception location!

@@beckys98 My original timeline had exactly that - 4:30-5:30. Then when I emailed it to my WC she put 5-6 in blue color next to my suggestion, which seemed like a way of her saying 'no it needs to be 5-6' lol I'm not sure why because I would have liked it immediately following. Maybe I will revisit this with her.

@@Lia33 I think she starts it at 5pm because they do the champagne toast with everyone after the ceremony and then keep some of your bridal party and family there for photos before they are escorted to the cocktail hour. If you look at the DJ timeline (if you got that yet) it says the reception starts at 6:15PM so not a half hour but 15 minutes for your guests to settle in and find their seats.

@ Ahh makes sense! I haven't received that yet but she did tell me she would send me the timeline. Thanks for clearing that up!

    • I and my partner are going to get married on August 12th. We met each other through a lesbian dating website. Both of us want that day to be a memorable day. We are in confused on which dress to wear for the wedding ceremony. Any suggestion on lesbian wedding dress? I prefer white, whereas my partner prefers of-white. Which one do you think will look good? Should we go for same dress or different one? Share your thoughts.
