I will post mine in case it helps. My wedding ceremony was at 2:30, lasted until about 3:30. Cocktail hour began at 4:30, dinner and dance right after, ending at 10.


4:30 PM – Wine & Cheese Begins

5:30 PM – Announcement for guests to find seats, Blessing, and Dinner Service begins

6:30 PM – First Dance, Father/Daughter Dance, Mother/Son Dance

Dance Floor Open after

7:15 PM – Announcement that champagne is available for the toast at the bar

7:30 PM – Toasts (2), Cake Cutting

Dance floor back open after

8:30 PM – Bouquet Toss, Garter Toss, Aggie War Hymn

Dance floor open after

9:15 PM – Last Call

9:30 PM – Last Dance, Send-off

10:00 PM – Reception Ends


The last dance was “Friends in low places” because our guests were big country dancers, plus whoever didn’t dance belted it out at the top of their lungs. Fun for all. The DJ made an announcement for everyone to line the sidewalk outside for our exit, and we left! Hope this helps!
