- Wedding: September 2013
We’re getting down to crunch time and need to plan when our vendors should arrive, what we want in our service, when we’re getting to the venue, etc. Our ceremony is at 11 am, and I’d like to get as many photos out of the way beforehand, with additional photos after the reception if needed.
I’ve found timelines on the Bee, but no post-event wrap-ups.
In your experience, how much did your timeline differ from what you anticipated? What took longer? What freed up some time? What would you have changed/adjusted?
Here’s what I’m thinking. I have no idea if it’s realistic. Any thoughts/experiences?
