Wedding Day Timetable - How To Plan Your Wedding Day

When you've gone to meticulous detail in planning your wedding, it makes good sense to plan your actual day to avoid getting flustered on the day. Make sure all people concerned have a copy in their pocket so you can synchronise your schedules and watches.

Start by dividing your day into three parts - try to anticipate and take into account any constraints or particulars that are unique to your wedding.

We have provided you with a sample timetable for a 3pm wedding - add or alter at your discretion and simply print out.
