So here is my basic timeline:
3 PM – Ceremony
3:30 PM – We leave for pictures, guests have cocktail hour
6:15 PM – Wedding party arrival
6:30 PM – Guests called up for buffet dinner
7:30 PM – Guests called up for dessert, coffee served
8:00 PM – Speeches, surprise for groom, cake cutting, moving of tables back for dance floor
9:00 PM: Special dances (mother/son, etc.) and then dance floor open to everyone
Now, my questions are:
1) When should I have my bouquet and garter toss, and when should I serve my late night snack? I was thinking 10 PM for the boquet/garter toss and 10:30 for the late night snack, but is that too early? Should it be more like 10:30 for the bouquet/garter toss and 11 PM for the food?
2) When should I go around to great my guests??
ETA: Our DJ is booked until 1 am so the party will go at least until then!
