    If you are looking to cut down the Recieving line time if you have a larger wedding like we did, we dismissed the rows in the church ourselves and greeted everyone as the filed out.. That way they tend to stand and chat less and just give a quick hug and do more of the visiting at the reception, because they know everyone in the church is waiting on them! Just a little trick but it helped us get to the reception alot quicker and not have that backed-up line ๐Ÿ™‚

    My advice is to set your groom and groomsmen’s time to arrive anywhere at least 15-20 minutes early. My husband and his buddies were catching up and playing XBox and totally lost track of time. Luckily for them, I had built-in this cushion of 30 minutes so they were technically on time ๐Ÿ™‚

    I just sent this to my friend getting married in June, I’m sure she’ll appreciate it since she’s doing everything on her own too!

    Thank you, thank you! We’re getting married July 5…we only have 5 hours at our venue from ceremony start time to us leaving…I was worried about photos too because we aren’t doing a first look, however, our photographer will stay the whole time, so I’m hoping for more action shots rather than portraits. Really nice to have a document that I can download and work with! 137 days to go and I can’t believe it!

    Thank you *so much* for the copy of your schedule and your tips! I honestly find the task of putting together a timeline for my wedding day so overwhelming. I don’t even know where to begin, or I didn’t until I read this post. I am definitely referring back to this post when it gets closer to my wedding day and I need to put together a schedule of my own. Thanks again!

    We had the opposite problem… The dj refused to follow any sort of timeline or playlist. So frustrating ๐Ÿ™‚ so we also did not get the dollar dance…
