- Wedding: August 2013
I need help figuring out the timeline of our wedding. Our wedding is a little under five months! We have our booked at our site from 11-4P. Our ceremony starts at 11A. My Fiance doesn’t want to do a first look (which I thought would be good for taking photos). We aren’t having a cocktail hour. We are taking our pictures at the gardens nextdoor to our reception site at 4P. I didn’t think cocktail hour was necessary since people will be starving for lunch right afterwards. There is a balcony outside of our ballroom that I figured could be used for family photos. I also thought of an idea of setting up somewhere to take family pictures, but I can’t figure out where in the timeline to do it. Our DJ is booked from 1030A to 3P so maybe after the music ends do family photos? I am freaking out so bad about this!!!
*FYI, I come from a Cambodian background (FI is not) where my side of the family is used to taking family pictures after the ceremony. I was never familiar with a cocktail hour until I decided to throw an American style wedding.
