Congratulations on your engagement!
To plan an effective and efficient wedding day, we would recommend listing all the key moments of the day e.g. first dance, cutting the cake, throwing the bouqet, speeches, etc.
Give a rough estimate as to how long each of the key moments will take. Armed with that information, approach your services and ask for their timelines. With the photographer - are they a journalism style or set piece type of photographer? The reason I ask is one doesn't need as much allocated time as the other.
Once you have your list of events and their timings, you'll need to list each of the events in order. It's best to give yourself a little wiggle room with each item in the list, so add an extra 20% to each timeframe just to be safe.
If you're able to, designate one of the bridal party or a guest to be the co-ordinator for the day, and provide them a print-out of the schedule to check off so that you don't have to worry about a thing!
