Does my timeline make sense?

shawna.darling4:  I think it seems a little rushed. Getting ready photos and pre-wedding photos are going to take waaaay longer than 30 minutes. If you only start them at 12:30, you leave hardly any time for the photographer to take any or give you and your bridal party time to get lined up before the ceremony. Most of the weddings that I have dealt with had these photos take place 2-3 hours before the ceremony. Also, I would begin the timeline with what time hair and make-up is to start. I would also include what time you would like your BM’s hair and makeup to be completed and when they need to be dressed.

I would likely just cut getting ready pictures.  Out of all of mine (and my Photog arived an hour early, so there were quite a few) I have about 3, maybe 4 that I like, and none of them enough to print.

shawna.darling4:  That changes the game then a lot. Even with two BM’s though, I would give yourself atleast an hour if you want them done. I’m assuming that you mean getting ready, bridal party, and groomsmen photos (if wanted). 30 minutes still wouldn’t be long enough to get these done, take a breather and then get lined up. I would go as far to say that it wouldn’t just be rushed, it would be impossible.

shawna.darling4:  I think it sounds pretty good. Just for your own sanity on that day, maybe aim to be done with any pre-ceremony photos by 12:30 so that you can breathe and get yourself ready for the ceremony. To make sure that you will have enough time to get all of the photos you want after the ceremony, I would make sure that you make a complete photo list. Then you can ask the photographer for his or her input on how long what you want will realistically take. Good luck 🙂
