It all depends on what’s going on the day of. Are you travelling to multiple photo locations? How many are getting their hair and make-up done? How long does the stylist need for hair? Are you planning on taking ALL of the pictures before-hand, including family? I would sit down with your photographer, stylist and whoever is doing your make-up (if not yourself) to help you with figuring out your day-of.
Our ceremony started at 5 as well. I only had my Maid/Matron of Honor and my Mom getting their hair done, but we also had the stylist come to the house we were getting ready at. Hair started at 9, giving each of us an hour. I got my make-up done first thing, as well. We did our first look just after 12 noon, then pictures with all of my family. Left just after 1pm and travelled to 3 different locations until 4:30 when we had to leave for the ceremony. We took pictures with DH’s family after the ceremony.

Our Ceremony started at 6, and we started hair/makeup at 8:30am for me, 6 bridesmaids, and MOG/MOB. It was pretty nuts and we actually ended up pressed for time to get to our first look at 2pm, much to my surprise!

Oh wow! Guess I’ll need to be getting ready from the moment I wake up! I’m getting my hair done professionally, my 3 bridesmaids aren’t. One of my bridesmaids is a hairstylist, so she will help the other girls and then I have my 3 daughters/flower girls to get ready too! We were thinking we would need a couple hours for pictures in order to be ready by 5pm. But I guess we’ll need a lot more than that! I just emailed my photographer and am getting together with my stylist this weekend, so I guess we’ll figure it out! Thanks ladies, I appreciate it! I had no idea it would take so long!
