We didn’t have one. Our DJ announced when things were happening. As long as you don’t have anything special that needs instructions, I think you’re fine.

I do not think it is nessasary at all and Even though we had everything planned, things went a bit “off” on the wedding day and I was glad we didn’t have a big written out schedule for everyone to see how off everything ended up.

@MsPanda:  Haha! That’s a good point I didn’t think about.

@Mrs2b2014:  No they don’t. As a guest, you are going to be at the reception anyway, whatever time things happen.  And as for the menu, you want it in front of you when you make your choices.

I don’t deny that it’s a really cute notice board that gives the guests a feel for what to expect. But it’s certainly not necessary.

It’s so rare for everything to run perfectly to time – and often for good reasons – that I tend to think that it is better NOT to advertise your presumed timetable. It’s a cute enough noticeboard but not really necessary especially as it is yet another job to remember to get done and bring to the wedding!

I feel like it can just be announce.  Giving the time line to everyone will just cause them to stare at their watches, and judge you if things don’t run exactly on time
