ceremony / reception outline
This outline will help the DJ prepare well for your event. The more detailed information you can provide, the better I can serve you and your guests on your big day!

*IMPORTANT: This wedding planning timeline defaults to traditional wedding formalities, I am ready and willing to make adjustments to a ceremony and/or reception that flows differently. I am committed to inclusion of non-American weddings, same-sex weddings, and any other way we can celebrate you and your guests to the fullest!
GENERAL NOTES:
• consider your guests when sharing music selections (what do they want to hear)

• think through the timing of your reception (e.g. elders may leave after cake cutting, so if you have dinner at 7:30, it may not be ideal to wait until 10pm to have cake cutting)
