@asianbarbie:  Overall, I think it looks really good!  🙂 The two things that really stand out as weird to me are the timing of the toasts and the first dance.  Maybe consider doing the toasts immediately following cake cutting, especially since it looks like you will be serving champaign at that time anyway.  This way it doesn’t cut into the middle of dinner.  

Also, is there a particular reason you have the first dance after the parent dances?  I personally would have couples first dance, father/daughter dance, then mother/son dance, but it really comes down to personal preference!  You could also do the first dance immediately after the bridal party grand entrace, but before the welcome and blessing.  That way you’ll truly have the first dance, and it opens up the floor for other couples to dance if they finish dinner early and feel inclined to!  Then after dinner, have parent dances before opening up the floor for the party.  

I hope that helps!
