I’ve been trying to figure out my wedding day timeline, and I know I have a while to go but I really need to see it written out. Not many people have a schedule like mine that I can gather so I made a rough draft and I’m hoping the time allocations are mostly accurate…
Check it out below…
Saturday Morning/Afternoon Daytime Wedding:
6:45am Girls arrive on site and enter Bridal Suite -> Hair (fairly simple hair do’s, all will be blown out the night before) and Make Up; Strawberries/Champagne and light breakfast foods will be served
8:40 Bridal Portraits (girls continue getting ready)
9:10 Groom arrives
9:15am First look/reveal and portraits while girls /boys finish getting ready
10:00 Groomsmen arrive and take pictures with groom; bride and bridesmaids take portraits (Because we have a photographer + assistant photographer, we will each have our own person taking getting ready pics and fun portraits!)
Florist/DJ arrive to set up
10:30am Combined Bridal Party Photos ; Parents and Other Immediate family join in…
11:00am Guests begin to arrive, back to Bridal Suite, more pictures with Immediate family, flower girl and ring bearer
11:20am Line-up for Ceremony
11:30am Ceremony, 20 minutes- directly after, everyone goes straight to next space, a few footsteps away, Mr. and Mrs. take a 10 minute intimate break to collect themselves..
12pm Cocktail Hour (Bridal Party and Immediate Family also go straight to Cocktail Hour)
12:10, Mr. and Mrs. enter cocktail party informally and mingle with guests, take pictures with more family, posed and non posed as we make our rounds, eat! (this garden is circular and there are many great photo ops here)
12:40 Bridal Party and Couple Leave, prepare for entrance
12:45pm Guests are directed to tent area, another few footsteps away to be seated.
12:55/1pm Introduce family and wedding party officially and Mr. and Mrs., immediately go into our first dance.
1:10pm Toasts/ First Course
1:35pm Father Daughter Dance, Mother Son Dance
1:45pm Main Course
3:20 Bouquet Toss/Garter Toss (maybe)
3:30pm Cake Cuttingâ€¨/Immediately after change into short dress, and go back to Dancing!
4:00pm Reception over 🙁
Few more pictures as we leave…
Break (I’m assuming bridal party will help us gather belongings as we go to our home alone for a breather)
6pm-12ish Father of Bride hosting informal after party, catered sandwiches and finger foods; more eating, dancing, karaoke and FUN!
10pm Last outfit change=blinged out sweatsuits, personalized for the maids and bride with names and date in wedding color, boys in personalized t-shirts
12ish go HOMEEE <3 I’m sure we will stay later but we will be more than exhausted…
Sorry it was so long, but I really want to get an idea of the day. Does it sound workable? Any suggestions? Has anyone been to/ had a similar wedding to this? :)))
