I had my hair done at 9 in the morning. We started pics at 11 (took a half an hour break in there as well as quit 45 minutes before we had to so we were right on time for the wedding) and ceremony was at 4:30. Dance lasted until midnight. My hair look fabulous if I do say so myself.

 

My hair stayed really nice all night. The only thing I had touch up was my makeup before the ceremony. We had a fairly calm day for pics though.

@mb0384:  I’m getting airbrush makeup, so I am not worried about it lasting. Also, my stylist is really good at working with my hair and giving the curls longevity so I am not too worried about that either. If you’ve hired good people, you will be fine!

Im Personally a little worried as well. My Hair and Makeup is booked for 1pm and my ceremony is at 330, Its just me getting done, but I would still need to get dressed and be picked up and dropped off all within a 2 hour period. If anybody is Late I may loose my shiznit. HAHA

We had the cermony at 5, first look photos at 2, I started getting ready at 11. Worked fine. I built in an hour “buffer” between each and we used almost all of it. I thought hair/makeup/getting dressed would take 2 hours and it took 3 – I also ate and socialized and didn’t rush. I planned on first look, immediate family, couple and bridal party photos taking 2 hours and it took about 2 and a half.  Which was perfect because we had a few minutes to sit around and drink champagne and hang out at the photo site before heading back to the ceremony. Oh, and I did no touch up of makeup or hair all night. It looked pretty much exactly the same when I got back to my suite at midnight the lipstick was worn off on the inside of my lower lip, but that was the only noticable difference from when I first got ready.

@mb0384:  I highly recommend airbrush if you are worried about it lasting.  A good artist can do it subtly if you are worried about looking too “made up.”  I had my make up done around 10 or 10:30 for our 5:30 ceremony and it lasted all night.  It was a pain to get off, actaully.

I had my makeup and hair done at 130 am for a 500 ceremony. My hair lasted all night, my makeup started going a little toward the middle of the reception (about 8 pm)from dancing and sweating, which is to be expected. Definitely get the airbrush makeup!
