    Honestly, I think you are spreading yourself too thin for that day.  To conserve time, definitely just get your hair and makeup done at the same place.  I really don’t know how you are going to have time to arrange all of the flowes, get your hair and makeup done, deliver the flowers, pick p the family member and be dressed for the wedding at 4.  Is it possible to have someone else drive this family member?  Are you doing the flowers before the hair and makeup appt?  the appt is scheduled for 11, but is that when you will have yours done?  It’s possible that you may not leave the salon until several hours later.

    I think you can do it yourself and look fantastic!!!  I did my own wedding day makeup and I am really glad I did 🙂  I had gone to a counter to get them to show me something and practice on me so i could get some tips and while I got great tips I also left not looking like myself, I was able to apply what the told me and do it in moderation and it was wonderful!!!

    You sound like you will be insanely busy, so I say do it yourself 🙂 You will do a nice job and save yourself some time 🙂

    Do it yourself. Practice ahead of time and set all your makeup aside so you know exactly what you’re using.

    I’ve done my own makeup for all three of the weddings in which I’ve been a bridesmaid, as well as for some of the other bridesmaids, and I’ve gotten lots of compliments.  In my opinion, it’s quicker and cheaper, and you can do it on your schedule as opposed to when the makeup artist is ready for you.  If you’re insecure about techniques for the weather and emotions, ask someone at the makeup counter for help, but I wouldn’t go out of your way if you typically wear makeup and are comfortable applying it yourself.
