Do you have a Wedding Timeline?
Often times, many people confuse a wedding timeline with the wedding checklist. A wedding timeline or “run of show” often used by wedding planners, is just what it says, a timeline of your wedding day. It’s a detailed, minute-by-minute guide for every thing from before your wedding starts to after your wedding ends. It is important to have a wedding timeline and for it to be followed as closely as possible to ensure your special day runs smoothly.
Wedding Timeline | The Ceremony
It is very, very important that the timeline created for your wedding be followed as documented; as any delays result in a pyramid of delays throughout the following events. What determines if everything is on time is the bride, because she is the last one to get dressed, so it’s important to have everything on your timeline timed specifically to cater around her.
Wedding Timeline | The Reception
If all works out fine during the ceremony, the reception should flow accordingly. All vendors, specifically the DJ or whatever form of entertainment you hire should have a copy of the timeline, which allows everyone to be on schedule for each part of the wedding and know what’s happening next.
