Perfect Timing for the Perfect Wedding!
Adapted from an article written by Heather A. Muckle

Hair, nails, make-up, dressing, eating---all sound like everyday activities. But, not when were talking about your wedding day! Before the big day comes, be sure to sit down and plan your schedule carefully so you don't miss a thing!

First of all, just planning the time of the ceremony and reception can be tricky. You'll want to plan your ceremony later, rather than sooner if you're looking to stretch out the day and relax while you get ready. Work backwards: Say your reception can go until midnight. Your DJ starts the dance music at 8:00, start your dinner at 6:30, and cocktail hour at 5:30. Then, depending on where in the Murrells Inlet Area you're having your ceremony, and how many pictures you need to take in between, you can plan accordingly. If your ceremony site is only 15 minutes away, you could plan a 3:00 ceremony, and have up to two hours for drive time and pictures.

Get up early enough to take a relaxing shower and eat a good breakfast. (Be sure to lay low on the cocktails and get to bed early the night before so this can actually happen!) You'll want to plan for showering, eating, getting your things together, and getting out the door.

Your hairdresser calls to say she is running an hour late. Code for your hairdresser is running AT LEAST an hour late and maybe two. Head back, grab your make-up and other essentials, and paint your face while waiting.

Don't forget to sneak in some time for lunch. Yes, there will probably be something you can snack on during pictures, but the bride is in every picture. No time for snacking! Be sure to take the time before pictures to eat!

Ahh..dress on, hair done - finally ready for pictures! If your photographer says pictures will take two hours before the ceremony, plan on three so you don't feel rushed. Also, inevitably someone in the wedding party will be late for pictures. Try to do as many pictures as possible before the ceremony. Once the reception comes, time will really start to fly!

Pictures are done and you've found your way to the head table and a nice big glass of champagne. If you're having a buffet dinner, it should only take an hour. But, if you are having a sit down dinner, it could be longer. Chances are that if you have a significant number of guests, you and your wedding party will be done eating just as the last tables are getting served. Make sure you get your music going early, when the majority of your guests have finished eating, so they may move to the dance floor.

Plan the garter toss, bouquet toss and other activities early. Older guests, or those who have to drive a long distance may want to head out early. Plan your reception activities early so everyone can participate.

If you are having a bar at your reception, you may want to close it 30-60 minutes before your reception ends for the safety of those guests who are driving.

Most importantly, find at least five minutes alone with your husband after you've been pronounced husband and wife! You'll need a few minutes alone to say, “wow, were married!”

 

Alternatives to the Receiving Line
Adapted from an article written by Angela Phelan

Your family and friends have traveled from all over the country (maybe even the world!) to see you and your fiance begin your life together at your Murrells Inlet Wedding. You want talk to them all and thank them for coming, but with all of the activity and excitement of the day, it can be difficult to share a special moment with each person. Traditionally, this is where the receiving line comes in, allowing each guest to congratulate the couple and say hello. However, in present times many couples opt for a more original approach to this tradition, incorporating something new and personalized to their wedding.

One option is to have the bride and groom dismiss each row of guests after the ceremony. Usually, the bride and groom will make their walk up the aisle after they are pronounced husband and wife, then they may either stay at the back of the church or go back up to the front to begin. They make their way up the aisle stopping at each row to talk to each guest. After the couple speaks to them, the guests may make their way out of the ceremony location. Many guests appreciate this option because they are able to sit and wait for the couple, rather than having to stand in a long line for an extended period of time. It also creates a more organized way of leaving the ceremony, rather than everyone crowding out at once. To let the guests know to wait in their seats for the couple to come to them, often the officiant will make an announcement at the end of the ceremony.

Another option is to visit each table individually at the reception. Many couples choose to do this during dinner or immediately after dinner, to make sure the guests are at their tables, rather than mingling. This option is a great way to create a relaxed atmosphere and it gives the opportunity to have a good conversation with people, as opposed to a quick congratulations. On the downside, greeting each table can often take a long time, since people tend to be more conversational during this type of greeting. Many times couples do not make it to all of the tables and miss speaking to some of the guests.

As a nice addition to greeting each table, some couples choose to serve the cake to each table themselves. This usually goes slightly quicker since the bride and groom still have to serve everyone else, but still gives them a chance to speak to each person. It can also create a relaxed atmosphere and is nice for gusts since they are able to sit. Make sure that you do not get held up talking to people, however, so guests are not left without their cake for too long.

You may also choose a more informal way to greet people, and simply mingle with the guests and greet them. During cocktail hour is a good time to this, while everyone is mingling, but you could also do it during the reception. Often, this option takes longer than expected since everyone wants to talk to the bride and groom and some guests may be left without a greeting. Sometimes it can also get a bit chaotic if all of the guests are constantly coming up to the couple to speak. This does work great for smaller weddings, though, and makes the guests feel more relaxed.

Whatever option you choose to do, the important thing is to speak to every guest to show that you are happy they could spend the day with you. By knowing your guests and your own personality, you will be able to choose which option is best suited for your wedding.
