I have been working really hard to make a timeline for the day of the wedding. You wouldn't think it would be that difficult; just get ready and show up, right? Not so much.
The general idea is to work backward from the time of the ceremony. I know we want to take our pictures before the ceremony because it will be dark afterward, and before that of course, we have to get ready. I'll have a hair appointment at some point that day, too, and I need to make time to eat. Also, I need to approve the floral setup and set up a few of my own decorations at the site.
I think the hardest part is figuring out how much time we need for each item. For example, at first I thought two hours would be the right amount of time to get ready, but then I thought, "All we need to do is put on makeup and slide into a dress. Am I going to sit around bored for over an hour?" So I've been rethinking and tinkering with the timeline. I'm not 100% happy with it, but we're getting there.
