Maybe you could do the mani/pedi the day before so you have more time morning of. I noticed you said it starts at 2 but you are aiming to begin at 2:30. Are your guests typically late? If not, they could get annoyed waiting 30 minutes. Let’S face it if, you plan to run 30 minutes late, you have no wiggle room. I would build in at least 20 minutes in case you want to get a few extra shots or your hair needs longer than expected or something else goes wrong but that’s just me. I also know as a guest, I would get there at 1:45 for your 2pm wedding and would be pretty annoyed if you didn’t show up until 2:30 unless I had something to do, so maybe you want to provide some sort of snacks and/or entertainment for the guests if you plan to be late. Just my thoughts.

You have absolutely no time like this! You’ll be stressed and rushing, and something might not come out right, and it sounds like you have not nearly enough time for pictures. Those always take longer than people expect.

Get your manicure the day before, please, and as long as you’re not playing football the morning of your wedding it should be fine.

Get your hair and makeup done early (8 or 9am) so that you’re putting on your dress at noon and then making final touches; time will fly and there might be a last minute phone call or arrangement to make. Schedule an hour at least for portraits so you’re not rushed. So portraits 12:45-1:45pm and then you’re ready to begin. Don’t forget to have breakfast while your hair is getting done!

I’m the kind of person who always builds a huge time buffer into the schedule, even if it means losing an hour of sleep and getting up early. In my experience, it’s worth it. This way, you’re not rushing around always worrying about being late.

Good luck, it’s going to be beautiful 🙂

I agree with the other ladies, do the nails in advance, they’ll be fine, worst comes to worst have a little touch up. One other thing is are you planning on doing hair and makeup at same place, if not you haven’t left any room for travel time. Just something else to consider.

Sounds like a pretty good plan, and you have plenty of time to rearrange if you need to. That’s a good time line to start.

You have a good start, but I think you’ll be rushing too much trying to get all that done the morning of.  Plus like many bees/posters have noted before, getting ready always takes way longer than you expect and pictures will probably take more than 30 minutes.  I would give myself as much wiggle room as possible.
