@vorpalette:  BP photos?

I love it, looks great! Sometimes you can ask a hotel for an early check-in time. If you let them know the circumstances and/or speak to the front desk manager they can work with you.

Also, it looks like you have a little over an hour for hair and an hour for get ready+travel – will your make-up already be done? Is this enough time for you to get ready? Depending on travel time from the salon to your food and to where you are getting ready (you only have 30 mins) this could eat into your get ready time as well? (And you wouldn’t have time to eat if this happened). Not trying to freak you out – just giving a few different angles on what ‘could’ happen.

PS I am *not* copying you! but we have a late day wedding and a first look too – lol. She might just use the same schedule. And we’re a week apart – definate deja-vu lol.

I’m not sure I will be able to sleep in (unless we do a Jack and Jill party after the rehearsal dinner) – so I was thinking the girls and I would go to the spa in the morning…

EDIT: Bridal Party. Got it. :l

Do you have one stylist for every girl getting her hair done? We work with bridal parties all the time and they sometimes don’t have enough time if someone is picky and wants their hair re-done/running late/not enough stylists.

Not sure there’s enough time for first look?  Usually they do some portraits then while you are looking your best, before the bridal party photos.

Looks good.  My only suggestion would be to over estimate on hair and make up.  I planned a LOT of time for our hair and make up and we almost ran out of time.

@vorpalette:  sounds perfect then!  Your girl sounds really fast 🙂  I was just shocked by how long it took on my wedding day, even after I had read to plan extra time, which I did, we still were running short.  I think it’s just b/c on regular days I take like 30 mins to do my own hair and make up that 2 hours seemed outrageous to me… but there was a LOT more going into the wedding day look than my normal day look 🙂
