I have been confirming times and details with the salon that is coming to my house the morning of the wedding. They just told me they will be arriving at 9:30. I told them that might be too late and they told me they can’t arrive any earlier due to other weddings that day. They are saying they will have everyone done by 1:00. Not very helpful considering my photographer arrives at noon and the bus is picking us up at 1:00. That leaves no time for photos and we’ll be rushing out the door.
I have 5 girls getting hair and 7 getting makeup. Honestly how long do you think it would take? Am I freaking out over nothing?

I think it depends on how many people are working on them. Do you have more than one stylist? Is there one person for hair and one for makeup?
For a friends wedding I was in she had five people all getting our hair done by one person. I would say each person took almost an hour but not quite. We started at 7am and got done around 11am. We DIY-d our makeup.
Her ceremony was at 1pm. We did not get her into her dress until about 5 min before she walked down the aisle at 1:15pm. If we had rushed a little more I honestly believe we could have gotten in at least 30 min of photos before the ceremony but she didn’t seem to care.
However, it depends on the people. If they’re an experienced team then I would trust what they’re telling you.

We have one person for hair and one person for makeup. I’m just thinking back to past weddings I’ve been in and we started around 8:00 for a 1 or 2 oclock ceremony.
Plus I don’t want to get done at 1:00 and be rushing out the door. Way too stressful.
