Wedding Movies: Romantic Movie Clips at Wedding Reception?

Q:

We are major movie fiends and thought we might create a short film compilation to play throughout the wedding reception dinner. We obviously want romance to be the theme. This can easily become cheesy, so how can we keep it simple and romantic?

A:

If you saw

Cinema Paradiso

, I bet you remember the final scene, when all of the forbidden kissing scenes were edited together. That might have been the most romantic 2 or 3 minutes of movie history! Why don't you and your sweetie create your own compilation by picking short romantic scenes from your favorite films? Go for classic kissing scenes (you won't want to make Grandma uncomfortable): Think

Casablanca

not

Basic Instinct

. You're sure to get your wedding guests in the mood for love!

What's the Basic Wedding Reception Timeline?

I'm not certain about the order of events at the wedding reception. Could you please give a rough timeline of the following events: receiving line, cocktail hour, first dance, champagne toast, best man's and maid of honor's speeches, dinner and cake cutting? I'm so clueless!
