I would let everyone eat and have a drink for an hour or so and then go into the toasts… These can take a while depending on how much your guys like to speak!

After the toasts it should be time for your piper to come and play, and then you can do your cake cutting and dancing after that.

Typically the traditional b/g, etc. dances ‘open up’ the dance floor to everyone else – you don’t want to clear people out of the dance floor once they get dancing because it could be a little awkward getting people back out there.

I would aim to do

6:15 – B/G Entrance

6:15-6:45 – Walk around and greet guests, maybe take some photos with guests with your photograper, grab a little to eat

6:45 – Toasts/Intro the piper

7:30 (or whenever the piper is done) – Dances

8:00-9:00 – Guest dancing/Limbo Contest (near 9)

9:00 – Cake cutting

And then the rest of the evening can be relaxed, dancing, etc.
