I didn’t expect our rehearsal to be as chaotic as it was, and I wished I had planned more for it… Otherwise, just expect anything.  We had people who crashed and people who bailed.  We had unexpected surprises and scary moments (make sure all of your vendors know all of your details– I would suggest being overly compulsive about it!)… Most of all, though, it was a great time and everything went pretty smoothly!

Good luck and enjoy!

I made a detailed itinerary (including locations) for my photographer and florist, but I sent it to my hair and make-up folks as well.  I based mine on Mrs. Daffodil’s and then made modifications that were appropriate to our unique event.

My plan was to travel to my hair and makeup appointments and we had discussed this with my hair person both in person and by email… but on the day of in the rush of everything, I received calls from her wondering where she should be.  It was a tense moment, but we got in touch before she left and it was all ok.  She had figured it out before I’d even gotten a chance to talk to her!

On my wedding day, we actually didn’t realize hair and makeup would take so long for all the girls.  We started at the butt crack of dawn and we still left late!

I would suggest going for a trial run.  Each stylist takes their own time, and certain hair-dos are going to take more or less time than others.

My style took an hour.  Both times.  We had a very tight schedule on the day of, so it was really important that we had it dialed in!
