I think its great you had everything so detailed and it worked out for you.  However, there have been several weddings I worked where they had a strict timeline, first dance at 8:14pm, cake cutting at 9:58pm, etc and not one of them stayed on schedule.  It definitely helps to have a coordinator or someone to make sure you are on schedule, but allow some time for things to fall behind.  Our ceremony was scheduled to start at 6:15 but we knew it wouldnt start until closer to 6:30pm so we werent upset when we started late.  It seems like you built in a good time around each part of your wedding and reception to allow for extra time :)

That is a lot of detail. Anybody else have two different ceremony start times? (One that’s on the invitation and the website; the other being the one that the pastor and DOC know is really when it’s going to start?) :) Our venue is easy to accidentally drive past so we’re building in a small buffer.

Oh this is awesome! We also have a 3 pm ceremony, and I’ve been trying to work on our timeline this week.

Thank you, and congratulations!
