Time-a Line-a Ding Dong Day
The faster you read the title of this post, the more fun it sounds!
I think I’ve figured out a big-picture timeline of our wedding day:
12:00 Get Ready
2:00 Outdoor Pictures
6:00 Cocktail Hour
12:00 Good night!
This is definitely not set in stone, as we don’t even have a ceremony or reception site reserved! I found some more great references for creating wedding day timelines. For now, I only want a rough outline of the day—just to see what 8 hours of photography can cover. It looks like our photographer could come at 1:00 for some getting-ready shots, and then leave at 9:00 after capturing the essential reception shots (first dance, toasts, cake-cutting). As our day gets closer, I’ll refer back to the following sites to help me sort out all the little details!
- Kate Parker Weddings recently posted a wedding day schedule from her wedding planner-extraordinaire perspective.
- Weddingbee has a timeline Wiki with links to real bride’s timelines. Check out Mrs. Pomegranate’s for all the tiny details.
- Blue Orchid describes oft-forgotten elements and the importance of a (secretly) padded timeline.
- Bella Sugar created a useful beauty timeline for the big day.
- Anne Ruthman offers wedding day scheduling advice from a photographer’s perspective.
