Can you suggest a timeline for my wedding day?

 In

I’d be happy to! The order of your wedding day is ultimately your own decision. If you work in the times from the previous FAQ into your schedule then I have no worries here. You can move around any of the events to suit your fancy but I can suggest two general order of events below! Our philosophy is to take up as little of your guest’s time as possible {this includes your family and bridal party} so they can enjoy the wonderful festivities you took the time to plan. Please add plenty of travel time between your prep // ceremony // reception locations.

 

First-Look Suggested Timeline

1:00pm            Photographer arrival // details (dress, shoes, jewelry, invitation suite & 3 rings)

1:45pm             Bridesmaids get dressed // photograph hair & makeup final touchups

2:00pm            Bride gets dressed // Bridal portraits

2:45pm             First look // Bride & Groom portraits

3:30pm            Bridal party photos

4:00pm            Photograph ceremony details before guests arrive

4:30pm            Ceremony

5:00pm            Family portraits (around 8 groupings, add 3 minutes for additional groupings)

5:30pm            Family portraits end // enjoy cocktail hour

6:00pm            Sunset (optional photo opportunity)

6:30pm            Reception // first dances // toasts // blessing // dinner
