    If I were going to do what you are planning (which actually isn’t far off from my plans…)  I think I would do 2 things differently.  First, I would switch the decorating with the rehearsal.  Basically I would have the rehearsal first thing in the am, take a few minutes to thank the ppl you want, etc, and then begin decorating with a nice breakfast spread out so that ppl can eat while decorating is getting done.  That way you eliminate the time set out for a full on luncheon, therefore gaining some time to possibly sleep in a bit…?  🙂  Also, I would add about 15 minutes more onto the time between ceremony and “dinner”.  Just pushing everything back a few will give you and your (by then) husband some time for a couple breaths…

    Otherwise I think the timeline seems solid.  🙂

    you ar enot leaving enough time for people to eat. you have the first dance set for 30 minutes after dinner and cake cutting- dont forget people like to toast. your rushing this part with 100 guests.

    dont forget toasts!  also it takes time to have the cut cake and plated for guests – ask about cutting fees and check timeline for that!

    I also think that you should give people a little more time for eating.  It takes a while to get their food and sit back down.

    but keep in mind as long as the food is served hot then everything else doesn’t matter so much.  If the dancing, cake or whatever are 20 minutes late it’s not the end of the world.
