Just so I’m clear…there will be no cocktail hour or shortened version of this? With that said it sounds like you will be doing first looks…correct?

Here’s what I’d say is pretty typical


6:30: Guests begin to arrive

6:45: Ceremony Begins

7:15: Ceremony Ends (Unless you’re having a Mass the typical ceremony goes between 20-30 minutes and 30 minutes at the absolute longest)

**You need this 10 minute block for guests to find their seats, but to be safe feel free to add in another 5 minutes. During this time you may want the first 5 or 10 minutes alone with your hubby.

7:25: Bridal Party announced

7:30: First Dance

7:35: Toasts/Blessings/etc

7:45: Dinner Service Begins

8:50: Mother Son/Father-Daughter dance

9:00: Dance-Dance-Dance

9:30: Cake/Coffee/Etc

***Your event will end depending on the 5 or 6 hour window your venue gives you…hope all of this helps.
