Looks good!  My cousin got married on a Friday night and I believe her ceremony started at 7:00 as well.  I think it worked well for all the people that didn’t take the day off work.  6:30 may be good too.

If you have a lot of older guests (grandparents, etc), you may want to move the events a bit earlier.  Most guests will not leave until after the cake cutting, but in your case that’s pretty late (10:20).  Just something to consider depending on who you are inviting!

are you having snacks at the cocktail hour? if not that seems like a late dinner to me, but then again I do eat pretty early normally.

I’ve heard a lot of peope will cut the cake just before dinner, so the catering can plate it while people are eating.  Then you won’t have a break in your dancing.  And you’ll have the choice to move up the bouquet/garter toss if you like.

Just a thought.  Otherwise your timeline looks pretty good!

We did our garter / bouquet right about when you did *but on a Saturday night* and we REALLY wished we had moved it up.  By the time the end of the night rolled around, a lot of people had already left and we were disappointed by it. That was the only thing we wished we had done otherwise – our timeline was the same as yours.

This is my one iffy area

08:40– buffet reception (around 75 people)

09:20- father daughter and mother/son dance

09:30 dancing

40 min. for everyone to hit the buffet and eat isn’t long. When you do your dance most will stop eating, and then you go right into dancing… so either people won’t dance… or they won’t eat. Personally, as much as I’m spending on food, I want the people to enjoy dinner 🙂 That’s just the one part that seems kind of rushed to me.
