5 Tips for Creating a Wedding Day Timeline

Maybe the word timeline has you silently freaking out. Maybe you have no idea where to start. I am here to help! Here are some tips to help you get started. If you are working with a photographer, I would recommend talking to them about how much time they would suggest for each portrait portion. The purpose of the timeline is to keep everyone on the same page: wedding planner, photographer, bridal party, etc. It is the wedding day game plan!

1. Start with ceremony time and any other non-negotiable starting/ending times.

2. If you are doing a first look, then block out a section of time prior to the ceremony for those pictures and calculate what time you need to be ready by (and travel time, if not getting ready where the first look will happen).

3. If you are not doing a first look, then block out a section of time after the ceremony for bridal party portraits, family portraits and bride/groom portraits.

4. Consider adding in a special husband/wife portrait time around sunset if the wedding takes place earlier in the day.

5. Add in other special things like first dances, toasts, bouquet/garter toss, etc.
