    I voted for #1 because it makes the most sense to me (not starting too early) and I don’t think your cocktail hour needs to be more than an hour (as in #2).  I also picked 1 rather than 3 because you need to make sure you have cleanup time at your ceremony site, although I don’t know how much you’ll need to take down – that’s up to you.  Also think about WHO will be doing that – it needs to be done during cocktail hour/pictures, so you probably don’t want your families doing it.

    I like the photobooth during the reception, but that’s really just personal preference – I would want you guys to be able to pop in there at some point, but also I think it would be a nice “something else to do” if someone wanted a break from dancing, didn’t like the song, etc. 

    I’m sure you’ll figure it out!  There are a ton of good options!

    MissPoutine:  I voted for #1. Something to think about– we are coming in doing the first dance our toast, moh/bm toast, cake cut (for pic), dinner during dinner (after dad and i eat) we will do the father/ daughter, garter/bouquet, serve cake, and then open dance floor. 

    We are aloting our selves a half hour for all toasts, first dance, and cake cutting. 

    Dinner/Dance about an hour. Garter/bouquet 10 min total.
