Here’s ours, but we’re still tweaking:

1)      Wedding party and parent intro

2)      Intro of Mr. & Mrs.

3)      First dance (Mr. & Mrs.)

4)      Blessing

5)      Let’s eat (Bride and groom doing table rounds instead of a receiving line)

6)      Toasts

7)      Father/daughter dance

8)      Mother/son dance

9)      Let’s party

10)  Generations dance (please suggest a time)

11)  Cut the cake (please suggest a time)

12)  The party continues

We’re still deciding if to move the toasts before dinner; the day-of coordinator suggested it but I’m worried we will be making people wait too long before they eat.

We’ll see.
