Bees, I’m confused.
Me & BM’s are getting made up at the hotel whilst Future Mother-In-Law & Future Sister-In-Law are getting made up at their place.
Photographer asked that I am ready by 2.30pm whilst they are ready by 1pm.
I asked my make up artist / hair stylist what time she will start & she said she will come to the hotel at 10.30, anticipating to finish at 1.30pm (5 ladies). I *think* I am ok with this as it allows time to be late – i hate running late!
For Future Mother-In-Law & Future Sister-In-Law she said she’ll start at 9am, hoping to finish at 10am. (then travel to me).
Wuld you be ‘ok’ to have your hair / make up done by 10am when pic are at 1pm & ceremony is at 5.30pm?
Or is this too early to expect someone to be ‘on the go’?
I can either leave it, ask an assistant to do them closer to 1pm or if not possible, cancel that portion & get a different artist.

I personally wouldn’t want to be wearing my hair and makeup 7.5 hours before the ceremony! I was done 1.5 hours before, but granted, only took a few getting ready and dress shots.

Do you cry easily? Or ‘muss’ easily? I tend to tear up during emotional days (like my wedding) and mess with my hair when nervous — so for me having everything done that early would be bad :p

@TammieRei: I’m assuming that Future Mother-In-Law & Future Sister-In-Law would bw of the same mindset. ATM they are very much ‘whatever the bride wants’ but i dont want them to be uncomfortable.

@Benni: I wil probably be crying the entire day!! I don’t think i can move my timings too much as we still have to travel almost an hr to the ceremony – I’m more worried about Future Mother-In-Law & FSIL!

we started at 8 for a 5 pm ceremony and we were still running late! I don’t think it’s that unreasonable, but with so many people, you might want to consider getting an assistant to help.

@Mrs. Panda: wow – how many people did you have get made up? What time the the artist / stylist actually finish?

i would suggest getting another mua to assist to shorten the time.

@Nic01: So that’s 1.5 hours of bridesmaid photos, and then 2 hours of photos including you (accounting for 1 hour travel)? That sounds like a lot. I can believe 2 hours altogether if that includes all photos (i.e. bride + groom photos, family photos, everything), but I don’t understand why the bridesmaids need to be ready 1.5 hours before that.
At the least I’d get different makeup arrangements for Future Mother-In-Law and Future Sister-In-Law. That’s very early to be made up. Especially in summer.

I think it is way to early…in my case…we are hiring 2 MUAs and 2 hairstylists to work on 3 ppl each..(2 moms and 4 bridesmaids)…and then I will have another MUA and hairstylist who will be concentrating on me only..and will stay for touch up till the time we are done with our after ceremony pictures..This way nobody would have to start very early..

@Nic01: we had one person do 4 makeup, 1 hair, and then my hair and makeup. It took two hours to do my hair and makeup. We started around 8, and I was last. I started hair and makeup around 11:30 and we finished around 2. I had a pretty elaborate hair style and my eye lashes would not stay on, so it took longer than it probably could have. To be honest, I can’t believe it took *that* long, even as I’m writing it out, but there ya go.

My hair and makeup were finished at 1:30 for a 5:30 wedding with first look shots. I had a super professional gal and let me tell you that sh*t wasn’t going to budge. My hair and makeup were rock solid, could have lasted for days. She bent the bobby pins with a needle nose plyers and my husband and I had to take turns pulling them out… took a few hours to get my hair free. Took about a week to get my fake lashes off and i only had a couple on each eye!! I had two hair trials before and on one my hair was coming loose by the time I got home. So I think it just depends. Do a trial if you haven’t and see how “sturdy” everything seems.

@Nic01: i think if your wedding is at 530 9 am is way to early i think like i guess since you need to be there for 230 for pics and stuff 130 or 2 dep on how long they will take 1for hair 2 for make up or 1230 to 145ish

We started our hair at 9 am for a 5 pm first look. Makeup came around noon time. I guess it depends on how many girls you have. For hair we had 10 people. Makeup I only had 8. I had two people doing each hair and makeup. It worked out perfectly for timing.

for all the weddings I have been a part of this is really normal. They use so many products that your hair and make up would look just as good 3 days later haha
