Planning your wedding order of service

A wedding reception can comprise a lot of formalities and it’s important to get them in the right order if your wedding is following a traditional format. Furthermore, if your reception is in a hotel or function centre, the general booking time is for four hours – some places may add a surcharge if your celebrations run for any longer than this. Choose the activities you’ll be including from our list (right), then decide when to begin and end each segment.

The master of ceremonies

Organising a master of ceremonies (MC) to oversee your reception is the best thing you can do to keep it moving along. Your MC may be a friend, family member or hired wedding professional who acts as a master of ceremonies, toastmaster and dance caller, plus helps to organise the wedding speeches. A sense of humour also doesn’t go astray! Don’t forget to provide your MC with a detailed time line (see below), then check that they know how to pronounce everybody’s names correctly!

Wedding dances

Traditional receptions may include:
1. Bridal dance (bride and groom)
2. Bride and her father dance 
3. Groom and his mother dance
4. Whole wedding party on dance floor

Your order of reception time line:

Time ____ Everyone arrives at the reception

Time ____ Wedding party and parents of the bride and groom form the receiving line

Time ____ Drinks and hors d’œuvres are served

Time ____ MC announces dinner

Time ____ First course and/or second course are eaten

Time ____ Best man reads the telegrams and emails

Time ____ Bride and groom mingle with guests

Time ____ Bride and groom perform bridal dance; guests dance

Time ____ Bride throws bouquet; groom throws garter

Time ____ Bride and groom say their goodbyes and depart

Time ____ Host and hostess farewell guests
