Schedule Recommendations

Recommended Wedding Day Schedule

Here's an outline of an ideal wedding-day schedule. This information should provide you with a good starting point for your planning.

This timeline presumes that your celebration occurs at a single location without any travel between locations. If travel is required, additional time in your schedule will be needed to account for the movement of you and your wedding party. 

This timeline also presumes a 30-minute ceremony. If your ceremony is longer than 30 minutes, you'll need to account for that additional time in your schedule.

For Jewish celebrations, additional time before the ceremony will be needed for the Ketubah signing and more time will be needed after the ceremony and during the reception for other Jewish traditions including the hora.
