Eep! 27 days until I am married to the love of my life!
I am planning everything out of state! That being said, I have NO clue what to do about a wedding timeline for the day of! I will include details below so you lovely lades can help me out! I am in full panic mode.
-Bridal suite is not available until 2:00 day of
-Ceremony begins at 5:30pm
– I have my photographer booked for 5 hours.
-We will not be doing the “first look” pictures.
What time should we do hair and makeup? Should I book a hotel suite to get ready in since the bridal suite at the venue isn’t available until 2:00?
Please share your wisdom/advice! Thank you so much, you really have no idea how much your help means to me. <3

My wedding was at 7pm and we started getting ready at 11. Your best bet would be to ask your hair and makeup peeps how much time they need, as a starting point.

You’d probably have to book a hotel for Friday and Saturday night and check in is usually 3 pm and check out is usually 11 am.

Your details sound really similar to mine, and we’re getting married on the same day. Fun! Anyway, our ceremony starts at 6 but bar opens at 5:30 and guests will probably start arriving then. My MOH and I are the only ones getting hair and makeup done, and we’re heading to a salon for appointments at noon (our venue recommends arriving with hair and makeup already done, and it eliminates worrying about those vendors getting lost or running late on the way over). Our appointments are scheduled for 3 hours, and we will probably arrive at the venue for getting dressed at 3:30ish, and start photos at 4:30. Since you’re not doing a first look, that will obviously be different for you, but I hope that helps somewhat 🙂

Taeyers: Yay, congrats!! Your post, in all it’s simplicity, just took a huge weight off my chest. That sounds like the perfct makeup time and dressing/arrival time. Thank you!!
