Scheme Events recently coordinated a vendor panel for the Las Vegas Wedding Network event at TPC Las Vegas. The title of the panel was “Whose Timeline is it Anyway”. A professional panel made up of onsite wedding coordinators, independent wedding planners, photographers, a DJ and a videographer talked about the importance of wedding day timelines. Each vendor’s timeline is crucial to make sure that the wedding day goes smoothly and according to plan. The venue’s onsite coordinator will have a BEO (banquet order of events) which will describe the set up of the room, the food that is being served and how it is displayed, and any other details of the day pertaining to the venue and it’s staff. The photographer and videographer have timelines to make sure they get every shot needed to tell the story of the day. The DJ acts as the MC and has a timeline to make sure everything is announced at the appropriate time and the correct music is played for special dances, cake cutting, etc. If you have hired a wedding planner, his or her timeline (or production schedule) will include everything from setup to strike. We consult every vendor while making our timeline to make sure that everyone is on the same page and has enough time allotted for the day. Our timelines include every detail about the wedding and are often 20-40 pages. So, whose timeline is most important? The consensus of the evening’s panel was that every vendor defaults to the wedding planner’s timeline. If you have not hired a wedding planner to pull everything together, make sure you contact all our your vendors to create a consistent timeline for the day. A good team of vendors will work together to make sure everything runs smoothly.
