Wedding Day Timeline

Hi Ladies,

what are your timelines looking like for the day?  our ceremony and reception are in 2 different places so we will have travel time between each.  we were originally planning on having dinner being served at 6:45 but that is the time the sunset so our photographer wants us to still be taking pictures at that time.  I feel like serving dinner at 7:30 might be a bit late....

what are you doing?  


Re: Wedding Day Timeline

  • We had our ceremony on Ulua beach (in March) and then had the reception at the Mala Wailea so not more than a 10 minute walk apart. Below is the rough time line I had with my photographers, we were also getting ready at the Marriott so we did not really have to factor in travel time to this. I knew my group tended to eat dinner late anyway so I was not worried about having a little bit of a later dinner. Also as soon as people were done taking pictures they headed up to the restaurant for cocktail hour while we finished our sunset pictures.

  • I haven't gotten married yet, but dinner is planned for 7 pm - as based on our caterer's suggestion after a 5 or 5:30 pm ceremony.  Appetizers  will be passed around so dinner a littler should't be a problem if you do the same.
