    This was the reception order for my wedding. It went smoothly. We wanted to eat first then do the events back to back so our older aunts and uncles, grandparents, etc. would be able to see everything and most of our older relatives left after all the events were done. Then we partied!! • 5:50 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. – Cocktail Hour o 6:50 p.m. – Ring Wedding Bells = Announce Beginning of Reception • 7:05 p.m. – Introduce George and Victoria with their Wedding Party • 7:06 p.m. – Bless the Food • 7:05 p.m. – Dining with the Aceys o Serve the Couple (Hostess) o Wedding Party Table First o Tables Consecutively Following • 7:45 p.m. – Toast to the Couple o Tia o George • 7:50 p.m. – Cake Cutting • 7:55 p.m. – Bouquet Toss • 8:00 p.m. – Garter Toss • 8:05 p.m. – First Dance • 8:10 p.m. – Celebration of Marriage
