For many couples, one of the most important parts of their wedding day is the reception. We get it, you want to get out on the dance floor and drop it like it’s hot with all your family and friends! But there’s usually a whole lot of other stuff that has to happen before you get to that part of the night, which means, there’s a whole lot of potential for major time delays and wedding day chaos.

So in this episode, we are talking all about how to fine-tune your wedding day schedule so that party time, actually starts on time. 

We go over:

  • What to do when your ceremony and reception are at two different locations
  • Why it’s so important to start your ceremony on time
  • What may get sacrificed if you shorten cocktail hour to save more time
  • How to taking advantage of a first look can save you lots of time later 
  • Communicating a time limit with your officiant
  • Why it’s important to OVER prepare for “the bustle” 
  • Really considering your guest count when it comes to planning the dinner portion of your reception
  • The best way to handle toasts at the reception
  • And a whole lot more!

    Bone Valley

    Bone Valley

    Bone Valley is a 9-episode true crime podcast. New episodes are available for free every Wednesday. In 1987, 18-year-old Michelle Schofield was found dead in a phosphate pit in Florida. Two years later, her husband Leo was convicted and sentenced to life in prison. Fifteen years later, previously unidentified fingerprints matched Jeremy Scott--a violent teenager who lived nearby. Jeremy has since confessed to Michelle’s murder. Yet Leo Schofield remains behind bars. In this groundbreaking podcast, Bone Valley host Gilbert King uncovers startling new evidence that Jeremy is responsible for a string of murders. King is the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning book, Devil in the Grove, which led to the exonerations of four innocent men. Bone Valley is a production of Lava for Good Podcasts in association with Signal Co. No1.
