    Time line of events. Help!

    Hello everyone, I’m looking for some advice, I have never been to a wedding before so I just don’t know what to do, I need some help with time line of events,

    im getting married at 2:30pm the service takes around 45 minutes,

    the drive to our venue is around 15 mins, 

    I’m not having a sit down meal as quite frankly we can’t afford it, but we are having a hot buffet for later, 

    all my wedding guests are evening guests too, haven’t got anyone coming just for the evening,

    myself my husband to be and our young son are going to be doing speeches, 

    really what I’m asking is what times should I do everything. 

    From photogrraphy to when the Dj should start playing music to speeches to first dance to opening the buffet. 

    I’m so stressed and other people that I have asked to help aren’t that much help lol, 


    thanks everyone and I hope someone can please help me! :)

    After shooting 100s of weddings here is what I would suggest.

    by 3.30 you will be outside with the guests congratulating you and bells if you have them.

    Confetti a couple of photos and by 4.00 you will be on your way so long as there are no main photos at the Church.

    4.15 arrive

    4.30 everyone else should all be there and ready for drinks and main photos.

    6.00 pm speeches

    6.30 buffet open

    (low key dj music)  

    First dance between 7.30 and 8.00.

    What Bill says....IF though you want a receiving line (which doesn't sound likely) do be aware that these can take a fair chunk of your time from somewhere.....
