    Looks good to me! My only comment would be that 2hr for drinking and dancing isn’t a lot, could that be extended an hour?

    @Kat:  Looks good (although I agree that 2 hr reception is kinda short?)…

    BUT, are your GMs gonna get annoyed that you’re telling them not to drink as if they’re high school kids?  Knowing ours, they’re going to have a couple drinks ahead of time and nothing I say could change that.  I think having a couple drinks is pretty normal.  But maybe your party is different, which is totally plausible.  In which case, why bother telling them? 

    I guess I just think that one of two things will happen: 1) they’ll be like “yeah whatever”, have a drink anyway, and think you’re being a controlling bridezilla…  OR…  2) they’ll be like “duh, we wouldn’t drink beforehand” and think you’re being a controlling bridezilla.  Ya know?

    Oh, last note.  It drives me crazy when people capitalize every word.  It’s bad grammar and really hard to read.  So maybe change that?

    Looks good, although after the ceremony, i’d be worried that that’s a tight schedule.. as long as everything goes EXACTLY as planned and on time, then ok, but if a couple things take even 5 min longer than expected, then that could throw a wrench in things.

    I agree with PP that 2 hours isn’t long for drinking and dancing. What about starting your ceremony at 5 or 6 even?

    My favourite part of every wedding is the dancing… I love when dinner is finally over and we can get out there and have fun. I’d be a little disappointed if we only got 2 hours to dance.

    Otherwise, seems ok!

    @Kat:  Ah I see!! 


    Yeah I think the timeline is good – works!  Everything is short and sweet (which is how mine will be too) – I really think it’ll be great, I’d just make an effort to keep things on track!  I imagine that between bridesmaids, the photographer, and event coordinator, everything will be smooth sailing
