jb2015:  We did the re-apply at my first wedding because they actually were a couple. And yes, they got married a few years later 🙂 

I’m still ironing out the timeline. It’s a little tricky because the ceremony and reception are at the same place, but the party will be leaving for a while to have pictures taken at a nearby park. So far, this is what it looks like.

5:00 Ceremony

6:00 Cocktail Hour Begins

6:45 Grand Entrance

7:00 Dinner (buffet – by table)

7:30 Toasts

8:00 Cake Cutting

8:30 First Dance

9:00 Bouquet/Garter Toss (this is still up in the air (no pun intended LOL) I don’t really want to do it, Fiance does

10:45 Last Call (bar closes at 11:00)

11:30 Last Song
