I'm finally getting to plan our outdoor wedding for this upcoming spring. We know we want to do late afternoon/evening, but don't know a definitive time yet. I'd like to get some opinions/input on a timeline for doing photos and what-not.
We plan on doing a "first look" before the ceremony, so that we can get some photos before hand of the two of us together, and I would really like to go ahead and take all of the group shots then as well so that guests won't be standing around outside after the ceremony waiting for us to finish pictures before the reception starts.
About how much time should we allot for photos before hand so that we can still have time before guests begin to arrive to do any final hair/make-up/wardrobe touch ups and I can get back inside before anyone arrives? I know that guests can be unpredictable in arrival time (especially since most of them will be making at least a 2 hour drive out to my parents house where the ceremony/reception will be held).
