We are running late!


What happens if the weather gets in the way of your ceremony, and everyone is running late!

Don't worry, it's totally fine! I know you only have your DJ or Band for a certain amount of hours, and your photographer is going to leave in 6 hours. Don't stress, there are ways to fix your timeline in the midst of crisis.

Your ceremony is only going to take between 20 and 30 minutes. You don't want to rush the ceremony - this is the time you are actually getting married. But there are ways to move along your reception without seeming like you are forcing your family and friends out. And not make it feel as if you are rushing things along.

When you first arrive before dinner or  your meal, go ahead and do your first dance. Then eat for a bit, after you {the bride and groom} are done eating, mingle, greet your guests at their tables.

About 45 minutes later, go ahead and do the Father/Daughter Dances, and the Mother/Son dance. Open the dance floor for a bit, have some fun. Once your dancing slows, do the toasts, cake cutting and garter/bouquet... get all of the logistics out of the way, so that you can spend the rest of the night dancing and having a great time with your family and friends!
