Two Stems of Joy

I’m so excited to finally share these photos & flowers! This summer, I had the honor of being both bridesmaid and florist to my dear friend Grace and her now-husband Matt.

What you Should Know About… Your Wedding Timeline

Wedding timelines can be very confusing this post will look at how you can create a wedding timeline that flows, doesn’t feel rushed but also doesn’t have awkward gaps guests don’t know what to do.

timeline

The timeline isn’t set in stone, and things will often overrun so be flexible, for example it’s perfectly fine having your deserts a little later than you planned because the father of the bride gave a beautiful (if slightly longer than expected) speech. The start and end times are the important parts, everything in the middle can be slightly fluid. If you have a wedding planner they will be able to produce or at least advise on how to produce your wedding timeline.
