Ours goes something like this:

5pm-5:50pm – cocktail hour

5:50pm – DJ asks everyone to start moving inside for dinner

6pm – everyone is in the reception room (hopefully)

6:05pm – Bride and Groom Grand Entrance! 

6:05pm -7:30pm – Dinner service

7:30pm – Toasts

7:45pm – First Dance

7:45pm-8:45pm – Open dancing, etc.

8:45pm – Cake cutting and coffee service

10pm – Reception ends

We aren’t doing a bouquet toss or garter toss, but I would imagine those around cake cutting time (but other brides might disagree).  Hope this helps!
