Start fresh and use your ceremony time as a starting point. Make a list of all the tasks that need to be done on a special day and determine how much time it will take. You can plan your wedding day agenda accordingly.
Start Really Early
If your ceremony will start at 8 pm so you need to start getting ready around 3 pm. The bride will definitely take some desired time in the saloon to get ready. Then the portrait session will also take some time. So, starting your day’s preparation very early will be very good.
Consult To The Wedding Planning Experts

Add Some Buffers
There are going to be some very little (but important) details that you forgot to add to your wedding day timeline. Your wedding planner should be well aware of these things and can help you in this regard. If there is any kind of transportation involved make sure you allow a 10-15 minutes buffer in case there is unexpected traffic etc.
Photographer And Videographer
