Wedding day itineries

Hi all,

Ok, so I have no idea what to do when on my day.

Would some of you mind posting a timeline of events of your day? It would certainly help me.

Thanks so much!!

We're having an Escape, and our day is going something like this...

12pm - 1pm - ceremony
1 - 1:30pm - cake
1:30 - 3:30 - pictures
3:30 - 6pm - going back to my family's timeshare, my mom is going to put out wine and cheese, just little snacks
6pm - 8pm - dinner at Ariel's!
8:30pm - 9:30pm - Dessert party at Epcot!

It's a long day! I didn't want people to leave and have to come back, and I don't want anyone changing so I figured we'd just continue the party throughout the whole day! haha.

Can I ask what time you are going to start getting ready, how long you are going to allow for that, what time the photographer is showing up etc..?

Sorry it took so long to get back to you!

Well, knowing me I will be like a kid on Christmas morning and get up super early! I will probably get up around 7am just to make sure everything is in tact, make sure we're not missing anything, everything is together, and of course shower. I am not sure what time hair/makeup is coming (we have Patricia LeJuene), but she gave us a ready time of 10:30 and there is 6 of us getting hair and makeup done, so I imagine no later than 9. We have Misty booked for photography, she will actually meet us at the WP, as we only have her for 4 hours. My dad does photography as a hobby and he has a Canon Rebel, so he will take care of any getting ready shots I may want.

Hi everyone,

Thanks for your replies.

We are looking to have our ceremony at 12pm. This should last 15 minutes. Then we plan to have our photos until 1.30pm which is when our cocktail hour starts.

My question is this, do you think our guests will have a problem waiting around for the pre reception?

Thanks!

The whole point of the pre reception is so your guests have something to do while you and the groom are taking pictures. So your guests shouldn't be waiting for you they will be having some drinks and munching on some appetizers. Then you can join in twards the end of the pre reception.

Now you could do what I'm doing which is having a short ceremony and use the extra time to get all your pictures (formals, family, etc) and still make it to the pre reception with enough time to enjoy it. The party is important to us so we will sacifice some pictures so we can enjoy everything!

But then how do we get photo's of our guests? Especially the bridesmaids and groomsmen?

this is cool to see. we are having a 10am ceremony, but it will be a while before we get to get down to business with our planner and get the "nitty gritty" figured out. in my mind heres where i am:

I'm hoping to be staying by myself (or maybe with my grandma if she can make it) at our "honeymoon suite" at the GF the night before

0600 i hope i can wake up and work out!!!
0700 begin beutifyin' (!!) - order breakfast/snacks/mimosas to the room
0830ish photographers arrive/getting ready
0915 Bride/ladies to WP
10-11 WP Ceremony/staged exit/some pics/guests begin returning to
GF/Whitehall room
1100-1500 brunch/reception. not sure entirely how this will all organize out
yet
1500 wave "tata" and go up to our suite which i hope mickey will have had
mousekeeping make up already and fill with flowers. heh.
we are contemplating chefs table that night, but its so much food and we can't really afford to host everyone, but it would be fun with family there... may do some parks stuff, just be together and hopefully kind of on our own.

next morning we've got the zero dark thirty wake up call to do a MK photo shoot, then we head off for the Disney Dream maiden voyage around 11am!

phew
