This is pretty much the same timeline I have in mind for our wedding. We aren’t doing the usual traditional things either. I think we will do our first dance after we are announced. Like go straight into it. So, I would say 6:30.
Are you nervous you won’t have enough time for pictures? I didn’t know how much time to allow for the pictures. But I’m hoping it’ll only be about an hour. I probably feel this way because I want a few pictures with our families, which are nice size. lol

@jessyrez: Few questions for you:
1. How long do you expect the ceremony to go for?
2. Have you factored in time from when the ceremony finishes, to getting congratulations from guests to actually getting to where you want the photos taken? The last wedding I went to the guest held up the bride and groom for half an hour before they could leave to get photos on site.
3. Are you doing a 3 course meal?
I had my first dance after main was served and eaten
