Looks good to me.

The only thing I would do is check with your photographer to make sure you allow enough time for pictures.

What kind of dinner are you having and for how many people?  

If you have a good DJ and caterer then I think this is a good enough rough timeline to give to them (and other vendors) and go from there.  They will want to adjust as they “feel” the crowd.

I would start leaving a little after 10pm.  Some places just require your guests be out by 11….but then you have an hour to clean up.  Is that the case for you?

Our timeline was similar and we ended up way late.

Plan v real:

pre-ceremony photos of groomsmen, getting ready, first look

4:00-4:30 ceremony – actually 4:10-4:50

4:30 – 5:45 photos / cocktails – actually 5:00 – 6:00

5:30 – 5:45 guests get food and sit for couple’s entrance – actually 6:00 when we came in

6:30 – band starts – actually more like 7:15

7:15-7:30 cake / toasts during band’s break – actually closer to 8-8:30

9:00 cleanup

sadly we didn’t get to hear the band as much as we wanted, but it did all work out okay
