Timeline

My photographers/Videopgraphers are asking for a pretty detailed time schedule for the day, which I know I have to do but have been putting off :). Does anyone have their timeline put together, or still have theirs from there wedding? I don't know where to put things like parent dances, cake cutting, toasts, etc. Please share yours if you have it!
