I have been wondering this too. Our ceremony is at 4 but we are going to start our pictures at 2:30 or 3.

Our ceremony is at 2:30 and our pictures will start at 11:30 to make sure we are done prior to any guests who may arrive super early. My bridesmaids and I are meeting at the church by 7:15am and then heading to the salon to all get our hair done and then be back to the church by 10:45 so we can change into our dresses.

Do you think 45 minutes is enough time to get into my gown? I have 6 bridesmaids, 2 jr. bridesmaids and a flower girl all getting hair done and so we are having 5-6 stylist.

my wedding was at 3:00pm on a saturday

i woke up around 7:30 – and had coffee with my parents and waited for my sister to come get me..i had my hair appointment at 9:30 and makeup at 11 – i dont know if the MAC counter was just extremely slow but i was leaving there at 1:15 – needed to be at the chruch at 1:30 – so i didnt get any lunch or get to hang out with my girls much until i got to the chruch – though i had an awesome morning my with sister/MOH

if makeup hadnt taken so long i think i would have been fine.

My wedding was at 6 PM on Saturday. I woke up around 7..had breakfast, hung out with my mom and a few of my bridesmaids that had stayed with me and just relaxed. At 10AM I had my friend (who is a massage therapist) give me a massage. Then I took a shower and went to get my hair/make up done. My appointment was at 12:30. I was at the salon until about 2:15. Then I came back, had some snacks and relaxed until our photographers arrived around 3:30.

9:00 leave to go to garden

10:00 Guests start arriving

10:15 Wedding actually starts!

My hotel, hair salon, and venu are all about 15 minutes away from eachother.

Our ceremony was at 6pm. We started hair at noon and make up  at 1:30. We took all of our pictures beforehand starting at 3pm. I can’t remember what time I woke up. I was kinda hungover from the night before…haha.

My wedding is just before sunset – 6:30pm (on the beach), and I’m not going to start getting ready until about 4pm, so that there’s enough time to do our first look pictures.  My sister is the only other person in the wedding party, so we don’t need to start much earlier than that.
