Hitched Tip: Timelines

We asked you guys on Tuesday what tips you wanted to hear from our team, and several of you answered! First up, timelines. The bread and butter to any successful wedding is the timeline. It is a living document that changes even up to the minute. Unfortunately, there isn't a one-size-fits-all when developing this important wedding resource. There are several venues we work at throughout the year and have never reused the same timeline twice! Every event is different! Instead of giving you a generic order of events, we will give you a few tips on how to create your own if you don't hire our team, since that is something on our to do list!

  1. First, choose your ceremony time; everything will be structured around this time!

  2. Decide on a first look. First looks give you more time with your guests, but require 1.5 hours of photos before the ceremony.

  3. Make sure all of your vendors are happy with the times you put on your timeline. They need to approve as well.

  4. Add your sunset time. These are the best photos you will take all day, trust us!

  5. Do not wear a watch on your wedding day! It's okay if things go a little behind or ahead of schedule. Let your wedding planner take care of the timeline and on-the-fly adjustments!
