Each and every Wedding is different, and your Timeline should be your own unique interpretation of your dream Wedding. While there are many traditions to consider, don't be afraid to mix things up and customize your Timeline to fit your style and theme.
Here's a few tips when creating your Timeline:
Don't stress too much on Time. While there are certainly some things that you'll want to start exactly on Time, it may be hard to predict how long some other events may run. The order of events is what's most important.
Be as detailed as possible. While you may want to simplify a copy of the Timeline to provide to guests, the Timeline that you provide to Vendors should be as thorough as possible so that everyone has all of the necessary information. It can help to focus first on the order of events, then add as much information as you can in the Notes or Comments section.
There are tools and resources available to you in the Portal to assist with things like Music Selection, but if you get stuck or need any assistance with planning, reach out to your DJ or to us directly. We are here to help!

Here's a few tips to consider when Planning:
When building your seating chart, be careful not to seat audio-sensitive guests closest to the speakers.
During your Ceremony, ask your Officiant to make special announcements:
"Please place cell phones on silent or off to avoid any distractions".
If guests are asked to stand for the Bride, make sure Officiant tells them to be seated after Bride makes it to the altar.
Officiant should end with post-ceremony announcements, ie: inviting guests to Cocktail Hour on behalf of the Newlyweds.
Sunset/Golden Hour Photos can be amazing, however, ask your Photographer to keep the session timing to a minimum so that guests are not bored waiting for the party to start
