    Not sure how close your lodging is to your venue, but 30 min to eat and then have arrived is pretty tight unless you’re not really having a sit-down breakfast. The timing of getting ready depends on how many people you have including parents and if any of them are getting hair/makeup done. For example we have 5 BMs and 2 moms and me all getting updos- this will take prob 6 hours – ergo none of the female bridal party will be very involved in setup.

    you could try to give you and your groom a few mins right after pictures to touch up/ breath before walking down the aisle…

    hopefully you will have a coordinator or someone? This is a tight timeline. Good luck and props for getting organized!

    It’s tight, but you’ll be fine. Just realize that it’s not going to go perfect and no matter how much you try – the timeline will not be followed to a T.


    Also, side note. at 3:55, is it first look photos, rather than first touch? Wait until it’s official to start touching eachother 😉

    2:45 Bride Gets into her Dress / Accessorizes
    3:00 PM Bridal Party Photos

    The only problem I see is this part- 15 minutes is not much time to get in your dress, put on your accessories, and walk to wherever you’re taking your photos.  I’d say give it 30 minutes for dressing and budget in extra time for transportation/walking, too.  It always takes more time than you think to get dressed and out of the door in real life, wedding day is no different.

    The biggest issues I see are transportation–but I don’t know where these things are happening. If everything it happening in the same place then I think it’s fine. But if you’re going to a salon, etc. you might need to bake in more time to get from point A to point B.

    How many chairs do you have? 15 minutes to move chairs might not be enough if they also need to be in photos with you guys.

    Just remember everything goes slower than you think it will. I would have some contingency time baked in so your ceremony doesn’t run late if something goes wrong, and you have time to collect yourself/have some quiet time if nothing goes wrong.
