Obviously no Wedding Timeline is set in stone – it may fluctuate naturally a little here or there. It is hence the job of your wedding planner or on the day coordinator to adjust the timeline accordingly and liaise these changes with all the vendors throughout your wedding day. Be welcome to copy and paste this timeline and adjust it according to your own preferences and times and email it back to us to look over for you. We wish you every bit of joy and many happy memories for your wedding day.
