Wedding Reception Schedule

Due the overwhelming confusion that takes place once a bride and groom reaches the reception center, I have transposed a schedule of events to make the reception flow smooth for the bride and groom. This schedule should be given to the photographers once the wedding director, bride and groom, and the professional Entertainment Company, TIM BROWN ENTERTAINMENT, has set it.

Depending upon arrival: Arrival time is 4 pm

4:00 pm:
Proceed directly to the area of the Wedding Cake. Complete all aspects pertaining to the cutting of that cake. Go to the Groom’s Cake and complete all aspects pertaining to the cutting of that cake.

4:20 pm:
Bride and Groom proceed to the dance floor. Have all Champagne glasses for bride and groom filled and ready for the first toast. The best man then proceeds to the location of the mic and makes the toast. Limit toast to 2 to 5 minutes.

4:25 pm:
First dance, Bride/father, Groom/mother dances are performed. Depending on the songs that are chosen, and the time they last, this part should not take more than 10 to 20 minutes.

4:40 - 5:00 pm:
Bride and Groom either meet guest or have meal.

5:00 pm:
If requested, have the Money Dance at this time. This activity should not last more than 20 minutes.

5:20 pm:
Garter/bouquet toss.

5:30 pm:
All required activities should be completed and time for the bride and groom to relax and have the rest of the evening to socialize.

Due to my many years of service and experiences with wedding receptions, I feel that this is the best way to run the entire reception and keep it moving to the point that the guests do not become bored and are ready to leave. Most photographers like to try to control what happens at a reception, and remember the longer you let them take pictures, the less time you have to have fun and relax. If you need additional information please feel free to contact me.

Very truly yours,
