Keeping track of time on wedding day

Hello! I was wondering how all of you have kept track of time during your wedding day. I have actually considered wearing a watch to my wedding but I figured that wouldn't look as elegant. . I would love to hear how you all kept track of time during the wedding. I have a timeline somewhat set (...

Hello! I was wondering how all of you have kept track of time during your wedding day. I have actually considered wearing a watch to my wedding but I figured that wouldn't look as elegant. Smiley laugh . I would love to hear how you all kept track of time during the wedding. I have a timeline somewhat set ( mainly in 15 and 30 min intervals) and am just wondering how I can try to keep within the time frames I set. I know I'm bound to go over on some things but I'm just curious how you all kept track of time for the wedding Smiley smile

    My DOC kept us on track. I had no idea what time it was because I relied on her.

    I am not sure why the bride specifically needs to know what time it is when everyone else (DOC/vendors/venue) know the day of timeline? It's pretty simplistic to know when the ceremony starts and your photographer will have the timeline of how long photos will take after the ceremony. Are you wanting to know like what time you do the bouquet toss or cake cutting? Because your DJ will know these things and prompt you or your hubbie. There's enough to stress about. The party should be a party, let lose and soak in the moment!

    Our venue coordinator did that for us. She told us when to be where and when the next thing was happening. It was great and one less thing for me to worry about

    I had absolutely no idea what time it was on my wedding day after I sat down to get my hair started. other people helped keep the day going, my photographer mostly. I never felt like knowing the time was important. I accidentally left my phone in the car and I didn’t miss it (except for
    when I went to take a pic of my husband dancing with his mom and realized I didn’t have it). It was great staying in the moment, taking it all in, not having to worry about what comes next or when it was happening. I enjoyed my wedding so much!
    The only thing that lm not happy about not knowing the time was I felt like we didn’t have time to take pictures before we had to at the reception, so we just headed to the location. I should have trusted my photographer to keep track of time because we had plenty and there were some shots we didn’t get. So trust your vendors and relax and enjoy your day!

    I can tell you for a fact that David's Bridal has dresses with pockets - I tried one on. Look at other sites like Mary's Bridal and New York Dresses. They also have dresses with pockets. I remember waaaay back when that was like one of my prerequisites for my wedding dress. Now I realize I don't want to be worrying about keeping track of anything except for my bouquet lol

    We have a coordinator to help us with the timeline. But if we didn't I would've more than likely recruited someone in my family to help us. Maybe an usher or the DJ can help if you're gonna have any.
