I woke up a little after 8AM. Hair and makeu was scheduled at 9:30 – 2pm for myself, four BMs, mom and grandmother. Wedding started at 6PM! We were on schedule and no rushing. Definitely have a little more time than you think for H&M incase you need a touchup or running behind.

I woke up at 6.45am as hair & makeup was coming at 7am.

1 makeup artist and 1 hair artist

MOB + MOG, 4 BMs, 1 SIL, 2 FGs and me!

Left home at 1.30pm.

Just about made it but very very tight squeeze! The hair and makeup people didn’t take any breaks. Still possible just need to be very organised!

@lina010:  

 

1. What Time did you wake up on your wedding day?  7:30 (our rehearsal was at 9 am)

 

2. What time was your wedding? Wedding was at 5:30

 

3. How much time did you lot for hair and makeup? Hair and make up started at 9:30 in order to be ready for my first look at 2:30. The rest of the girls had about an hour longer to get ready.  FWIW, I had myself, 5 bridesmaids, 2 moms and 1 grandmother to get hair and makeup.  There was 1 MUA and 2 hairstylists.  It was still pretty rushed.

I woke up at 7 like a normal Saturday to walk our dogs. Had breakfast with my husband then went to the salon for hair at 10am, 3 stylists for 5 ladies, 1 flower girl. Makeup around noon with one MUA. MUA done around 2:30 so my husband and I had time to relax alone at our house! First look at 3:30. Ceremony started at 6:30.

1. What Time did you wake up on your wedding day? 7.30 I think

2. What time was your wedding? 1.30pm

3. How much time did you lot for hair and makeup? I asked my make-up lady for help and asked her for help with this.

Though I was 20mins early – apparently the earliest bride he’d seen – I based the travelling to the church on Saturday traffic and not a Sunday, Whoops.

@lina010:  

1. I think I woke up around 7 AM? I had assumed I wouldn’t sleep well the night before but I forgot to take a sleeping pill and nevertheless actually slept great! I’m an early riser by nature.

2. My ceremony was to start at 7 PM, but we had a first look and posed family photoshoot starting at about 5 PM.

3. I allotted about an hour to put on my makeup, do my hair, and get dressed. Turned out I needed an extra 10 minutes, but that was fine, as the photographers just shot other people (family and groomsmen and stuff) while I finished up. (I didn’t have getting ready pictures, because I didn’t want them. My getting ready time was incredibly unglamorous and stressful to me and I wanted to be alone as much as possible.) I did my own makeup and hair.

I’m not married yet but this is our plan…

1. We’ll probably wake up at 9 or 10. We both like to sleep in.

2. What time was your wedding? 4pm

3. How much time did you lot for hair and makeup? Probably around 15 minutes. I wash my hair at night, rather than in the morning, so no need to worry about that, then all I need to do is brush through it and clip in my extensions, which I pre-style. Takes around 3 – 5 minutes – I’m used to them! I am using the same makeup routine I use every day. Takes around 5 – 10 minutes.

I sound so boring haha.

I have a quick question: What if you don’t have a wedding party? Let’s say the ceremony starts at 4pm…. would you still have to be up and ready by 10AM? Would you just sit there for 6 hours, waiting?

1. I woke up between 5 and 6am…though we were having an afternoon wedding and we were staying on site.  I just walked around the Inn video recording.

2. Ceremony started at 5:30pm

3. Hair was scheduled for 12pm but she came at 11am.  DH and I got a couples massage from 10-11 so it was a mad rush to get in and let her get to work…not exactly how I had wanted it to go down 🙂

Pictures were supposed to start at 2:30pm so in theory I suppose I gave her 2.5 hours to do hair and makeup but my deal was quick and the plan was to just give ourselves lots of time inbetween things.  HOWEVER that did not happen…even though the hair/MUA was an hour early, all the other wedding stuff came rumbling around, searching for people, getting people ready, steaming my dress, finishing my shoes haha…so we were still very rushed.

I woke up at 8am for my 7pm wedding, with a 6pm first look.

It took 45mins to do my hair, & 1.5hrs to do my makeup (which was double the time he told me it would take, & this put me vastly behind schedule since I then didn’t have time to make sure the venue was perfect, which it ended up not being).

@lina010:  

I woke up at 9:30am on our wedding day.

Our wedding was at 4:30pm.

We had to be at the salon at noon but we had never been there before and we had to take our photographer to get equipment beforehand. We left the hotel at 11am. We spent an hour and half at the salon getting our hair and some of our make-up done. We arrived at the venue at 2pm. We spent about an hour in the room finishing getting our make-up done, steaming my dress and changing clothes. At 3pm we started taking photos and our parents arrived. We were finished with pre-wedding photos by 4pm, as the weather was horrible outside and most all of our guests were sitting in the lobby.

@LadyMoriarty:  You just want to make sure you allow enough time for yourself to get ready (shower, make-up, hair, dress steamed if necessary), you allow time for pre-ceremony photos if you are having those taken, and of course travel time. I would get up and start getting ready by noon.
