I dont really want the order changed, but I wonder if I've left enough time for stuff. We're having a small wedding of under 40 guests (including vendors ie photographer+ assistant, videographer + assistant, etc) so the family photos shouldnt take too long.

Thoughts?

We're meeting with the venue tomorrow morning first thing so just thought now we prob should have an idea of the timeline lol

Wow-you are so organised Wand33!! Looks pretty good. My only concern would be that you may need more time for congratulations and photos. Ours took much longer than we thought! Your photographer should be able to help you too. They gave us a guideline on what to expect for what we were after (unfortunately we didn't utilize the advice as much as we should have! :wink: )

Lol thanks I'm trying to be :)

I am a photographer myself, so I'm basing the time allowed on weddings I've photographed as well as sunset time (dont want to lose too much time into the reception) :)
