    I think it looks great, did you want to have toasts during dinner? If so, will it take an hour to get everyone through the line/served?

    hmm..Probably wont take an hour but this is just a "rough draft" good point though :) I'll have to take that into consideration when I make the final one.

    On that 'toast' line - I think we are doing toasts once everyone has gone through the buffet. Since we (the wedding party) will be done with our food at this point, we'll do toasts while some people are still eating.
    I love your timeline though! I'm going to print this out as a guide for me too. My ceremony is at 4:30 and reception at 6ish (grand entrance is planned for 6:15), so it seems pretty similar! Thanks for the help - even though YOU were asking for help!

    The only thing I would say since we are at the same venue is to look up the sunset time.  Ours is 6:45, so that may influence when you want to have the chairlifts?
