Your wedding is one of those life events during which you want everything to go as planned. However, this can be quite challenging as there is so much to be done within a limited amount of time. To add to the complication, you’ll likely need to involve quite a number of people. These include those you know personally and service providers.

One of the ways to overcome this challenge is to have a good time plan for the event. Every activity should be allocated the appropriate amount of time. Any bride or groom wants to enjoy their wedding and remain relaxed throughout the event. Although this is possible, it also comes at a price – painstaking planning.

While it’s important to understand that you can’t control everything and things may not always go as planned, you also don’t want to leave things to chance.

The following post describes what you need to consider in order to prevent your guests leaving early and disappointed:

The quality of time people spend at a wedding is far more important than the quantity of time. As the bride and groom, the host and hostess of this party, it is up to you to ensure your guests will enjoy themselves.

If guests are invited for a seven P.M. ceremony, start the ceremony by seven-fifteen or seven-twenty at the very latest. Once the ceremony is over, if there is a cocktail reception it should last no longer than 45 minutes to an hour. Read more at Colin Cowie Weddings…

As the post above describes, when you keep your guests in motion, they will always be anticipating the next activity, making for a fun and interactive event.

A major highlight for many weddings is the dance party. How do you make it fit well into your time plan? The following post offers tips on how to do this:

“We do a lot of consultations with couples who are asking us one consistent question:  How long should my dance party be?  While there is no set-in-stone answer for this question, there are a few things to consider when determining how long to keep the dance floor open.


This is the most obvious one.  You need to have a good idea how many people you expect to be on the dance floor to begin with at the end of the night.  Guest lists with a large portion of older family members will most likely see a drop off some time after cake cutting.  Exhaustion will set in, and they will want to make their exit before the other guests.

One major wedding consideration that really affects your ability to keep to the set timeline is transportation.
