Sample Wedding Day Timeline: Wedding Wednesday

Indiana Wedding Photographer Photography Lafayette Indianapolis

Your wedding timeline is extremely important on your wedding day. It will make sure you stay on time and have enough time allotted for your portraits. I know sometimes putting together a wedding timeline can be pretty time consuming and scary so I have included the following sample timeline to hopefully help you a bit. This timeline is based off of a 2:00 p.m. ceremony but you can adjust it for your ceremony time!

Here's a breakdown of the minimum amount of time I need for the portrait part of your day:

1 hour | Bridal Details/Prep

1 hour | First Look/Couple Portraits

45 minutes | Wedding Party Portraits

30 minutes | Family Portraits

10:45-11:15 a.m. | Bridal Details

11:15-11:45 a.m. | Bridal Prep

12:00 p.m. | First Look

12:15-12:45 p.m. | Portraits

12:50-1:20 p.m. | Wedding Party Portraits

1:30-2:00 p.m. | Bride and Groom Into Hiding

1:30-1:50 p.m. | Reception Details

2:00-2:30 p.m. | Ceremony

2:40-3:10 p.m. | Family Portraits

3:30 p.m. | Bride & Groom Entrance Into Reception

3:30-4:30 p.m. | Dinner

4:00 p.m. | Toasts

4:30 p.m. | Cake Cutting

5:00 p.m. | First Dance, Father/Daughter Dance, Mother/Son Dance
