1. Schedule of Events

On your wedding day, it is all about the schedule of events. That means that every single event that occurs on your wedding day fits into a certain time slot. For instance, the time the cake cutting ceremony takes place or the first dance between the bride and groom. The overall success of how smoothly your wedding day goes is contingent upon the schedule of events, and how well they are organized and orchestrated by your wedding planner or month-of coordinator. All of the events of the day will be on your timeline. Trust me, you would want to hire a professional wedding planner or month-of-coordinator because you do not want to spend your wedding day ensuring all the details are taken care of. That's Why a Wedding Day Timeline is Important.

2. Wedding Day Vendors

Remember all those vendors you spoke with, visited, and booked for your wedding day, someone has to call them, confirm their time of arrival, and even make sure they are using the proper doors when they arrive at the venue. On average, a wedding can have anywhere from 10 to 20 vendors onsite at one time, not to mention the wedding party. Your wedding planner or month-of-coordinator should be the one they "go-to" for any questions, concerns, or mishaps that may occur throughout the day. This is another reason Why a Wedding Day Timeline is Important. Your timeline will include the name of each vendor, their contact information, arrival time, and so forth. Your wedding planner or month-of coordinator will be in contact with your vendors throughout the wedding planning process so you can spend all your time enjoying your day.

3. Creating The Timeline

When you invest in a wedding planner or month-of-coordinator, you don't have to worry about creating your timeline. Wedding planners are experienced in creating timelines and have educated themselves on all the details associated with a wedding day timeline. They also have tools and resources available to them that you may not have. Your wedding planner or month-of-coordinator will provide a copy of the wedding day timeline to all vendors who will play a role on your wedding day. For instance, the amount of time a vendor may need to set up, how many hours they have been hired for, and departure times are just some of the details provided to the vendors on the wedding day timeline. This is another reason Why a Wedding Day Timeline is Important.
