Hair/makeup timeline, will I be ok?

I actually think it would be a really bad idea to finish hair/makeup just before you leave for the ceremony. Because that stuff often takes longer than you think. So it’s a good idea to build in a cushion. And having a glass of champagne during that cushion sounds good to me!

ETA: I did several makeup trials to ensure that my makeup would last all day. I put mine on at 1:00, had ceremony at 5:00, and partied until midnight and I never had to even touch up!

@Italiandoll:  I agree with PP- it does take longer than you think.  To be honest- because our timeline was off, we missed out on A LOT of pics I wish we would have gotten.


You need to have your hair and makeup done that long before.

I had this “genius” idea to have it done at the last minute- and because my BM’s messed up, and things take longer than you think- bad idea.  I also would not suggest taking your dress off after you have it on- hanging out in your dress is not that big of a deal- and that hour will pass WAY faster than you think.  I promise.  And I know you’ve probably heard it a million times.  I thought I was going to be the “magical” bride who would be able to slow time on her wedding day.  I barely remember any of it- 


Your makeup and hair are going to last.

That’s ideal!  You don’t want to have to rush out to get married.
