    Looks good… I wish mine wasn’t as cut as as it is… I like that you have 2 full hours of uniterrupted dancing.

    just went to futuer bil wedding this weekend.  I’d ad din more time cushion, honestly you’d rather sit around with nothing to do then be rushed or behind.  nto sure how small families are, but with 1 sibling on his side and 2 on her side, family photos still took a full hour, then add another hour for bridal party and other fun shots of bride and groom. 

     

    their hair appts took longer so every one was then late, and they were still finishing photos 30 minutes before the ceremony was due to start and guests were arriving.

    also unless your decoaration are bare minimum you might be surprised how long it will take,

    I would give yourself more time for photos.  The number 1 complaint from a lot of brides is that they didn’t get as many pictures as they wanted, and the the number 1 complaint from photographers is that they weren’t given an adequate amount of time to work in.  45 minutes just does not seem nearly enough.

    It sounds like you might be a little rushed getting ready (only 30 min?)

    As long as you have a small family and small wedding party (and you aren’t traveling to take pics) then I think you will probably be okay. 

    Biggest issue I see is that there might not be enough time to eat.  Even if you and your family eat promptly at 6:30, this only gives them 30 min to eat before you make toasts, cut the cake, and dance.  I would give people an hour to eat before you do any cake cutting and dances (I think toasts would be ok at the end of dinner)

    I would decorate the venue earlier and allow more time for getting ready (especially if that part of the day is being photographed) and photos.
