So our ceremony and reception are in the same location. It takes 5-10 minutes to flip the venue (tables set up they just have To move chairs) we are doing pictures all before the ceremony so we plan on enjoying cocktail hour with our guests. Passed apps and drinks.
Currently our plan is this
3:15 wedding starts
4:00 cocktail hour begins (roughly)
5:00 couple intro and first dance (since we are not doing grand entrance)
Dinner served immediately after first dance.
After dinner cake cutting (we are doing cupcakes but a cake ontop for us to cut)
Then dancing till 8 with mother son and father daughter dance thrown in.
Is it weird to have first dance then dinner?
