It depends on your family and how quick they are, I guess.  Our plan with out photographer is photos before the ceremony with me and my family and me and my bridesmaids, then when we’re done they’ll do the groom and his family and groomsmen.  Then after the ceremony all we have to do is photos where the bride and groom are in the same photos.  We’re allowing an hour before the ceremony and 35 minutes afterwards.

We’re doing 30 minutes after the ceremony (parents, siblings, grandparents and wedding party). Since that’s basically our guest list, I’m expecting things to move along (especially since once the pictures are done, they get to eat!). Then, after dinner, I have about 90 minutes for “fun” shots before the cocktail reception starts and the other 190 guests arrive.

did you think about doing some pictures before the ceremony seperately? (bride with her side of the family, bride with bridesmaids, groom with his side of the family, bride with groomsmen). that can save time and get it out of the way so you have less to do after the ceremony.

We’re setting aside an hour after the ceremony for pictures. I’ve been told by many photographer friends that your pictures come out so much more relaxed this way.
