How to Create the Perfect Wedding Timeline

To ensure that your wedding day flows smoothly, the biggest piece of advice I give all of my brides is to create a solid, well-thought wedding day timeline. Your wedding timeline is truly the foundation for your entire wedding day, and it is so important to have create the perfect timeline with your planner and photographer. 

When creating your timeline, this is my motto: give yourself more time than you think you need. If you ever find yourself wondering, "Is this going to feel too rushed?" - that means yes, and you need to add more time to that area. Inevitably your wedding day will fly by, and so you want to schedule enough time for each important moment to be able to soak it in! Being intentional with your time allows you to be more present and really take in this once-in-a-lifetime day.

Below, I'm going to show you a sample of my foolproof 8-Hour Wedding Timeline. While there are a few variables here, like your ceremony start time, the framework is solid. This timeline had been intentionally crafted through my experience on countless weddings and seeing what truly works best to ensure that the say goes off without a hitch, and you can relax and enjoy every second of it!
