Your wedding is next weekend and you’re now working on a timeline? lol I thought I was queen of procrastinating. ๐Ÿ™‚ Kidding. What are people asking for specifically? I assume they know what time the ceremony starts. Is your reception at the same venue or do they need to travel and figure out how much time it takes to change locations? Are they asking for a cocktail hour or dinner start time? I can’t think of much else where its necessary for people to know specific start times.

mathiasenn :  I literally laughed out loud and startled my fur baby. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Seems a little strange the caterer needs an entire day of timeline…I would think all a caterer needs to know is what time food should be served. And possibly what time you’d like to cut the cake if they are handling this as well? I’m clueless here but curiously following. lol Venue coordinator provided a very simple timeline and I had no objections.

I gave a suggestion for a timeline on your other thread. Did that not help?

Would you be able to work with a sample timeline and tweak it a little bit? 

It would be a good starting point to look at an example, keep some things or eliminate some things.

The caterer needs the timeline so they can make sure the staff won’t be serving/clearing dishes during key moments – it doesn’t have to be super strict, just general ideas of how long the alotted time would be. For instance, when you have the speeches you don’t want to have the staff clearing dishes, as this can be noisy/disruptive. And if you want to have a toast, the staff should know so they could go around and fill glasses in advance.

It’s also easier for the caterer to know that at 7:30 everyone will be invited to sit at the table, so the food should be ready to go at that time. Otherwise you risk it being prepared earlier and just sitting around.

But yea, this is something your coordinator should be able to put together for you. Why not just put the two people in touch and say that you’re available if they have any questions?

Do you have a Day of Coordinator or Wedding Planner?  If so, they should be helping you with this.
