We are getting married in 16 days (eek!) and we are just trying to put together the order of events for the reception. i.e. What order should we do speeches, toasts, meal, cutting cake, bouquet toss, etc.
Any thoughts? We are having a sit down meal. Guests arrive at 6 and are taken in by horse drawn wagons for a 6:30 reception.

Here’s how ours went: Our wedding party was announced in first, then everyone took their seats. Toasts started immediately after, while guests were served salads. Following toasts, came the meal. After dinner, we walked around and said hi to everyone… and then we cut the cake. While cake was being served, we did our first dance, followed by father daughter dance. Bouquet toss and garter toss were done about an hour later, once everyone was dancing/having fun!
