One of my BMs asked me to send something out to them soon just making sure everyone is on the same page with dates/times etc… I’m having a really hard time deciding what to do for the morning-of timeline..
I have 7 BMs. My sister, FSIL, and 1 of the other BMs are getting hair and/or makeup done, along with myself, my mom, & FMIL. Since all the girls are coming in from OOT (none besides my sister live in St Louis anymore) & incurring travel expenses, I didn’t want to make them pay for hair/makeup if they didn’t want to.
2 of my BMs are not originally from St Louis & don’t have family they’re staying with while in town, so last I checked they were planning on staying with me at my parents’ house… but they aren’t getting their hair/makeup done.
The ceremony starts at noon, & our hair appts are at 8 & makeup is at 930. The salon is about 5 min from the church.
I guess my questions are:
a) For the girls who aren’t getting hair/makeup done, do I just have them meet me at the church at a certain time? like 11am? And they just get ready at their houses? Or, if everyone is doing their own hair/makeup do the bridesmaids usually get ready together at the church/wherever the ceremony is taking place? They could meet at like 10-1030 & have a pretty good amount of time to get ready?
b) for the 2 BMs staying with me at my parents’ house who aren’t getting hair/makeup done & are doing it themselves.. If I have the other BMs just get ready at their houses & meet at 11, should I have the 2 staying with me do that too? Or should they come with me to the salon & then we can head over to the church around 10-1030 for them to get ready? Or just stay at my house until 10ish & then head to the church?
I guess getting ready at my house just seems like it might be a little weird since my dad & all my brothers will be getting ready, too, & my 2 BMs would be getting ready with the rest of my family, without me, my mom & sis being there.
I am probably (okay, more than likely, haha) overthinking this, but I’ve tried to think about it so much that I can’t even think straight, haha, so I would appreciate any advice you have!
