When planning your wedding it can be tricky to figure out how much time to allocate to each portion of your day.
The trick is to find your happy medium, where you will have enough time to prepare and get what you need done. Remember, the bride and bridesmaid prep times are given here as estimates and you should calculate yours depending on the size of your bridal party and also travel to the wedding venue. Keep in mind that your wedding day timeline is just a guideline.
With our couples, we book in a phone call to discuss their vision and draft together a sample timeline similar to the one below. No one timeline is the same as you might have unique elements to your wedding such as a traditional dance or a first look.
Here are a few sample timelines based on 8 hour coverage to get you started. If you are interested in our wedding packages click here. Happy planning!
Having a group photo list makes the family photos run smoother. We have found the below sample group photo list is a great start that can be printed for the MC/Photographer. We suggest for our couples that they post this list on a Facebook/wedding website and let the celebrant know after the ceremony where this will be taking place. This way guests don’t disperse as it’s hard to compete with canapes and beverages.
