Of course you want your wedding reception to be absolutely fabulous. One of the best ways to have a great reception is to have a solid timeline for the festivities. Traditionally, the wedding reception timeline follows a fairly set structure and it work out pretty well. It goes a little something like this.

In the Beginning – Hour One

The first hour of your wedding reception timeline should be the cocktail hour. This will give your guests time to have a drink and mingle while you and your new spouse duck out for photos and maybe a quick trip to the hotel room! Having a cocktail hour at the beginning of your reception gives you an opportunity to take care of pressing post-wedding details.
