Nickig_4:  I would say that if you ceremony is not until 5, you should push the first look back a little. Our ceremony was at 4, we did our first look at about 1:30, then all the wedding party photos, and still had a nice break to relax before the cermeony. I also had 4 BM, and for the 5 of us to get hair/makeup done it took about 5 hours, we started just after 9

Also, is it a seated dinner of buffet? If buffet, I wouldn’t have as much time go by between the seating and the serving.

As far as the rest of the timeline, this is aapprox what we did:

Ceremony 4:00pm (approx 15 mins)

Cocktail Hour until 5:30pm

Everyone was seated at 5:30, and we made our grand entrance

Buffet dinner 5:30pm

Toasts 6:00pm

First dance 6:15pm

All dance for a bit

Cake cutting 7:00pm

Bouquet toss 7:15pm

all dance again until end of night


A little advice, make sure that you’re doing each thing in an order that will eventually lead guests back to the dance floor, otherwise they may stay seated a lot more
