Planning your timetable with your wedding venue
Your wedding venue should be asking you for a detailed timetable of your day, well in advance of your actual wedding celebration. This will enable them to have welcome drinks, canapés and food prepared, not forgetting having the venue clean, decorated and organised in terms of staffing numbers for your day.
A well timed wedding reception will make a huge difference to your overall experience, and that of your guests too. Ask your wedding venue how much control/influence will they exert to keep things on schedule? Also, be sure to keep them up to date with the different elements of your day as your wedding planning journey progresses.
In the unfortunate occurrence that your wedding timetable does happen to steer in the wrong direction on your wedding day, well prepared staff should step in to speed things up and get things back on track where possible. Reading testimonials of recent married couples should give you a good idea on how their experience was with the particular venue on their special day.
