Thank you ladies, and Teena, I really appreciate your help!
Our venue sort of gave us a guideline as to how long the entree mains and dessert should take but they left the rest of it to us. Today I've tried drafting it out and it looks like this:
4.15pm Guests head to Cellar door for pre dinner drinks
5.00pm DJ and MC arrive, set up and get ready in reception hall, test microphone and run sound check etc
5.15pm Photographer will take room shots of the reception area
5.20pm – Bride gets changed into another dress
5.45pm Guests head into Reception area.
6.00pm Parents, bridesmaids and groomsmen enter
6.05pm Bride & Groom enter
6.15pm Entree Served
6.45pm Main Served
7.30pm Speech by Father of the bride
7.40pm Speech by Best Man
7.50pm Speech by Groom
8.05pm Dessert Served
8.40pm Bridal waltz
8.50pm Cake cutting, coffee and tea served with cake, bride and groom toasting
9.20pm DJ plays dance set
10.00pm Bouquet toss, garter toss, last drinks are called
10.15 – begin farewell
10.30 – bride and groom leave
10.40pm Guests commence departure
We aim to finish everything by 11pm so it does look like it's quite a rush.. what do you ladies think?
