How long is your reception and what is your timeline? Need some help for a three hour reception.. gamma in advance

Re: timeline

  • What kind of reception are you having? sit down? cocktail? I'm trying to figure mine out as well because I'm having cocktail and most things online are for sit down...

    I figure talk this over with your band/dj and photographer. That was my plan.
