The importance of the…TIMELINE!

A key element of a successful wedding or event that is sometimes overlooked is simply the timing. Creating a timeline and having someone manage it will result in your guests enjoying every second of the event, leaving saying “Wow, that was a really great time”. When there is not a well-managed timeline, your guests will be left waiting and looking at their watches. If a ceremony starts 30 minutes late, guests will be looking around wondering what is going on. If your photographer takes you to a far away location for photos after the ceremony with no timeline management, it could result in a longer than one-hour cocktail hour. This can lead to guests having a few too many drinks and if no one has updated the catering staff, the expensive meal you have planned could be served cold due to the delay. {Sorry photog friends, just being real here!} We love to manage a timeline to keep things flowing from start to finish, checking in with all vendors to ensure a smooth flow. An “event peave” of mine is when the guests enter the reception room and their is no music on. It’s awkward! Music sets the tone and can create a relaxing ambiance for dinner and more upbeat energized environment to get people on the dance floor. Here’s a snap shot one of our wedding timelines. We kind of love em. ❤Screen Shot 2015-03-29 at 8.00.00 AM
