Having lots of trouble figuring out the best schedule for my reception, basically this is the problem- im trying to fit in the 3 x 45 min sets for the band, plus the cutting of the cake which is served as our dessert, where would you place these ? i have no idea what i am doing with all of this 🙁
4pm Ceremony on grounds
5pm-6pm canapes and drinks for guests before entering reception
6pm- reception starts (5 hour)

@beautifullyboheamian: Talk to your banquet coordinator. I also had trouble and she helped me tons. She’s done this so many times and gave me good tips of when is the best time for what. Good Luck.

@SamanthaLovesJames: yeh she has been a godsend i just thought id ask on here, i know that we need to get the cutting done so that it is ready to serve immediately after dinner.. toying with the idea of being introduced and cutting the cake immediately?

@beautifullyboheamian: yes, I had to do the same thing. After introduction, we cut our cake because they need to take it to the back and cut it just in time for dessert. I found that awkward since our salads weren’t even served yet, but that’s the best way it worked for the banquet.
