I think it sounds fine. I’d start making sure that the girls are already starting to get ready to leave earlier as 5 minutes is really not a lot of time and the last thing you want is to leave something in the Bridal Suite that you wanted for the ceremony or reception (unless you have someone who’ll be able to run up and get it). But otherwise I think it sounds great. Yes, if you want preparation photos you need to have them arrive before 2:30. I would even have said 1:00.

i think it sounds good! my one concern is you’re eating and having your makeup done at the same time. i’m a slow eater so i wouldn’t be able to stuff a bagel down my face in two minutes and then do makeup. and i’d want to eat. make sure you eat!

Sounds good. There are a lot of posts like this one…look around at the input on those! I think people’s advice on timelines might be exhausted for the moment being 🙂

Just a tip! Do your make-up right before the photographer arrives! The company that did my hair/make-up on the wedding day said they always start with hair first, and then make-up so that it’s super fresh and touched-up when the photog gets there.

Also, I would squeeze in as many photos as you can before the ceremony. I realize you’re not seeing each other beforehand, and that’s fine, but if you can get some family photos done beforehand, do it. That way you’ll have more than 30 mins of portrait time with your new hubby 🙂 I always recommend that couples take about an hour for portraits with their photog because it won’t feel as rushed.

Hope that helps!
