April 2012 Weddings

critique my wedding day timeline please?

for some reason the timeline is making me lose my mind, could you offer your brutally honest feedback please?   FI doesn't want to see me before the ceremony, otherwise we'd have the first look photos.  TIA!

12ish- girls meet up to get ready, is that early enough?
1ish- guys meet up to get ready
2:30- shuttle picks up girls to drop off at church for photos
3pm- shuttle picks up guys to drop off at church for photos (girls hide out when they get there)
3:30/3:45- shuttle guests from blocked hotel to church (10-20 min drive depending on city traffic)
4:30- ceremony begins (20-30 mins)
5:15- shuttle guests to cocktail hour (5-10 min drive) while WP/family/B&G take photos
6:30- seat guests for dinner (family style service)
6:45-WP entrance
7:30- toasts, cut the cake, make table rounds
8:45ish- first dance, then open dance floor.....?????  or is that too late?
11pmish- late night snack
dance floor stays open until we want to shut it down.  venue mgr will call cabs when people want to leave.

?????  i'm especially stuck around the get ready/drop off times at the beginning, and the cake cutting/first dance/etc at the reception.

thanks.  i hate the timeline.  :)
