I hope I don’t have to get up early. I am assuming I’ll get up around 9, but my ceremony isn’t until the afternoon.

I don’t want to get up any earlier than 7 or 7:30. The BMs, my mom and I are expected at the salon at 9, so that should give me plenty of time to get my butt in gear. I really do respect the brides who get up at 5 AM and have their day packed and then party into the wee hours of the night!!

ETA: Our ceremony’s not until 4:30 but the salon can only take us in at 9. We’re also having a first look starting at 1:30, but I think by having things more spread out it will give us more buffer time in case we’re running behind.

My ceremony is an hour away, but it doesn’t start until 5:30.  I’m checking into the hotel around 2:00 to get ready, and my hair appointment is at 11:00.  As long as I can get to sleep at a reasonable hour, I plan on getting up around 9ish.  Jeez, just talking about this makes me excited!

I’m planning to get up at 7am, have to be at the hair salon for 9am, and I want to walk the dog first!! Our ceremony is at 2pm.

I wish I had a good time frame for you…I didn’t fall asleep until 2am and woke up at 4:45. I’m one of those people who suffer from “Christmas Morning Syndrome” and can’t sleep when I’m excited about something 😉

I got up a 7, had the BM’s over in the suite by 8 and the hair/makeup over by 830.  Our ceremony was 330, first look pictures were at 1245.

We got married at 6 PM – I went to get my hair and make up done at 12:00 so I wanted to give myself plenty of time to just hang out beforehand. I set my alarm for 9 AM but I ended up waking up on my own (because I was cold!) around 7 AM. Then I just got up and went to the grocery store. I was too excited to stay in bed!

@PitBulLover: Okay now I’m curious . . . what did you need at the grocery store the morning of your wedding??

@Natalieh86: haha well I had to pay for the cake! And I wanted to get some snacks for eating throughout the day. It was also really nice because I knew it was the only time I was going to have to myself for the entire day.
