Putting Together a Timeline

You’ve got your venue, your photographer, your DJ, your dress, and your caterer.  You’ve sent out invitations and gotten most of your guest list finalized (as a side note– what’s up with people not RSVPing?  How rude!).  It would have been nice to have a wedding planner, but the budget wouldn’t allow it.  Or maybe you’ve hired a day-of coordinator (very good move, by the way), but she won’t be on the scene until a week or so before the wedding.
In the mean time, your DJ and caterer have asked for a timeline, and you don’t really know where to start.   When do we do our first dance?  How long does dinner last?  Are people going to dance for an hour or two hours or three hours, or twenty minutes??  We have the venue until 10:00– is that enough time to fit everything in?  Or too much time???  Ack!
