I am having a wedding with no dancing. It will be on a Sunday from 11am-4pm. The only dance will be the first dance 🙂 I am not sure how my timeline should be for a wedding with no dancing…I do not have a wedding planner so please give me some ideas. I do not want my guests to be too bored, however the wedding is going to be pretty small (50 people) and everyone is family except a friend of the groom.

We’re doing a similar reception, but it’s shorter AND we’re not doing a first dance. Here’s our timeline! Honestly, guests are pretty self-entertaining- especially if they’re family, they’ll probably enjoy the chance to get to see each other.
2:00 Ceremony Begins
2:40 Ceremony Ends
3:00 Bride and Groom Enter Reception
3:10 Thank You Toast
3:25 Cake Cutting
4:30 Entire guest portrait
4:45 Bride and Groom Leave

I’m afraid I can’t help, but I’m planning something similar next summer (even the same number of guests) so I was wondering the same thing. Thanks for posting this!

I’m also interested in this! We’re not even going to do a first dance, so I’m trying to figure this out. Our time of the day is different, though, so I think it’ll be something like:
5:30-6:30: Cocktail hour
6:30-7:30 or 8ish: Dinner
8-11: Dancing, games, etc.
It’s going to be a pretty casual wedding, I really would prefer that people not feel like they have to just sit around and be bored if they’re done eating or whatever. We’re going to have some outdoor games that I think might be fun for people who aren’t interested in dancing, and stuff like that. But I think it still needs a little filling in, I don’t want anyone to feel like they don’t know what’s going on either!
