Typical and Suggested Wedding Timeline

This timeline shows a typical sequence of events that help make the reception run smoothly. This is only a "suggested" timeline based on performing at many weddings and our experience with a variety of caterers and is not a requirement if you have an alternate sequence in mind. Times are approximate only and any traditions for example: the bouquet toss, do not have to be done. The band will play music if those traditions are being skipped. If there are any special dance requests, for example: ethnic dances, they work best when fit into the dance set after dinner.

The following sequence is based on a complete package with the ceremony beginning at 4:00 pm, cocktail hour beginning at 4:30 pm and the reception beginning at 5:30 pm. If you are not having CloudNYne Music supply you with these added events, please skip to the part that applies to you.
