i think it all depends on how much u need done.. some people have very intricate hair styles done that take hours.. whilslt others just require 20 mins with curling iron and some hair spray.. i think the time varies depending on the hairstyle, hair length &texture and dress type. some dresses take longer to get into than others.

I’m getting my hair and makeup done and it’s suppose to take 2 hours.  Then my alteration person said to allow 30 mins to get into my dress because it’s a corset back and needs to be laced up.

My hair took about an hour and a half, and my makeup 30-40 minutes.  I think two hours is usually enough… I’m assuming that for the other ceremonies you’d only be changing your dress, not hair/makeup.

When you have three weddings in one day, do you mean three ceremonies of your own or two other weddings to attend?! I hope to goodness you mean your own!!!

I had my hair done then I put on my own makeup the church was 35 min away from the hair shop.  I was ready in 1 1/2 hours tops walking down the aisle.  pic to show what i got done and as you can see i didnt wear a lot of makeup.  I suggest doing a practice run on your makeup to see how long and maybe a practice run on your hair that way youll know.  It wont take long to get dressed.   good luck and remember to assign the right people to the important duties.
