    I don’t think I have enough info to vote.  The timeline you’ve shown doesn’t include set up/cleanup, the cermony, photographs, etc.

    Is the ceremony at 4pm with cocktail hour at 4:30pm?  When will you set up?  Do you have someone to set up for you? When are you going to take pictures?  I can’t imagine you having a ceremony and portraits all in 30min.  If you have to clean up and be out by 9, how can last call be at 8:45?

    I think your timeline looks fine!  We are also getting married on a Sunday, and our entire reception is only 4.5 hours.  Here’s our reception timeline:

    5:30-6:30 Cocktail hour       

    6:30 Introduction, first dance

    6:45 First Course and Toasts

    7:15 Second Course and Parents Dances

    8:30 Cake Cutting

    9:55 Last Dance

    Especially on a Sunday night, I think a lot of people will appreciate an early night.  And it seems like your timeline gives plenty of time for each activity.  If there’s too much time in between things, people might get bored anyway!

    I voted that it was a little rushed. But, if you don’t mind that you’ll be fine. It’s not that its an impossible schedule its just would be too much pressure for me! It is on a Sunday and people will have to work so you know that it will be great for them. The schedule will work great if you want it to!
