I think it looks good, but I agree with the poster above that I would probably replace the 2 dance songs with the mother/son father/daughter dances. Dancing then dinner may be an odd start/stop as that is getting the party started, then cutting into it for something large like dinner.
Here is an idea of our day (ha I just cut/paste it from my review) I think it worked well for us, but we had a 6 hour reception.
TIMELINE (this is a general idea, some of it’s a blur)
9:00am – everyone had breakfast together (Shawn and I didn’t part until after breakfast)
10:00am-1:30pm hair/makeup appointments and quick lunch at the spa
1:30pm-2:00pm Men have getting ready photos, Bridesmaid’s get ready
2:10pm-2:40pm Kim getting ready photos, photos with bridesmaids and garden shots alone
2:40pm – 3:00pm Drive to ceremony location and organization of bridal party for entrance
3:00pm-3:30pm ceremony & toast (possibly shorter)
3:30pm-4:00pm group and family photos
4:00pm-5:00pm bride/groom shots – guests had cocktail hour with mariachi band
5:00-5:30pm? Entrance, housekeeping, speeches
5:30pm-6:30pm buffet dinner (probably shorter)
6:30-6:40pm people introduced themselves, thank you from bride/groom
6:40-7:00pm all dances (bride/groom, parent’s dances, etc.)
8:00pm-8:10pm cake cutting
8:10pm-8:30pm any photos people wanted with bride/groom before photographer left and PARTY
OHHHHHH and 1 month today! OMG you must be so excited.
