- Wedding: September 2013
Okay ladies, I need some help here! Our wedding ceremony starts at 6pm and then the reception starts at 7:30 pm (Cocktail hour). I know that it is kind of late for a wedding, but we really wanted a night wedding. What kind of timeline are you night wedding brides looking at? Also, it is super important to me that he sees me for the first time when I walk down the aisle. I know it would be easier to take all of the pictures before since we would like to enjoy the end of the cocktail hour with our guests, but I just don’t like the idea of the first look photos. (Side note: We are doing a day after photo shoot).
The plan right now is to take our pictures separate from each other before the ceremony with our bridal party/groomsen and family etc. Then after the ceremony we will take a few pictures together so that we can make it to cocktail hour. The only reason being at cocktail hour is important to me is because we our having our reception at our local aquarium and we rented the entire facility for our guests. I would hate for our wedding party to miss the cocktail hour in the exhibit space because we were too busy taking pictures. I feel like I’m trying to cram too much in and won’t have enough time to get everything done! Do you have any suggestions for a timeline? I am horrible with this kind of stuff! Any help is greatly appreciated!
