The Wedding Timeline will be the "playbook" that, as coordinators, we will refer to during your ceremony and reception. Creating your timeline now allows you to relax on your Big Day. It will be our jobs to make sure everything flows effortlessly behind-the-scenes. We will also share your timeline with all of your vendors ahead of time to make sure everyone is on the same page.
I have created a sample timeline for your convenience.
