Figuring out where to begin or how much coverage you need for your wedding day can be a bit overwhelming. Most people haven’t planned a wedding before, so it’s understandable to not know how much coverage you need! That’s why I’m here to help.
If you are having a smaller gathering, or coverage to the very end of the wedding isn’t as important, then the 6 hour package might be perfect for you. If you have a smaller budget, but still want to work with me, this is also a great option! Below you will see an example timeline for the 6 hour package. Of course you can easily change things around as much as you want!
3:00pm- Details photos/Venue photos/start getting ready photos (it’s good for the photographer to arrive in the last hour of you getting ready. Most brides do not want photos of themselves without their make up done, but of course that’s up to you!)
3:30pm- Get into dress and enjoy a couple moments with your gals!
3:45pm- First look with your mannnnnn (A first look is a great way to save time after the ceremony. It can also give you a few special minutes to soak in the emotions and show off that dress to your man!)
5pm- Family Photos, Wedding Party Photos and Bride/Groom portraits (to save time, it is best to keep the family portrait combos to a minimum. Plan for about 2-3 minutes per grouping!)
6pm- Grand Entrance and DINNER!
6:45pm- Cake Cutting/First dances
7:20pm- Get on the dance floor with your guests!
9pm- Send off! (Or keep partying the night away! Some people opt for a fake exit, others prefer to really exit, and others decide to skip the exit all together and just enjoy dancing!)
Your wedding day does not have to be stressful. If you want to enjoy time with friends and family, plan for buffer time. Hiring a wedding day coordinator will also greatly help with helping the day move along on schedule! One last thing: many wedding days tend to run behind schedule, which is totally fine! Be flexible, and remember that the whole purpose of the day is for you to GET MARRIED! Now go, enjoy making your timeline and reach out if you have any questions!
