The Ultimate Wedding Day Timelines

Are you hoping for a really fun and (mostly) stress-free wedding day? Creating a wedding day timeline can be a big help for making your day run smoothly. That is why we are happy to present three Wedding Timeline Ideas that we have seen make for an amazing reception and event!

Option 3: Have Your Cake & Eat It Too!

Let your guests enjoy the sweetness of your cake cutting and your delicious cake immediately after dinner. By doing your cake cutting before dinner, you will allow your servers the time needed to cut the remaining cake while dinner is enjoyed.
