I’m trying to think through my pre-wedding timeline if we are starting pictures at 12:00pm. My ceremony is starting at 3:00, but our photographer wanted plently of time to do all of our pictures before.
What time should we get to the venue that is an hour away? And what time should we all do hair and makeup? I have 5 bridesmaids. 🙂

I had 5 bridesmaids, plus 3 moms that had hair/make up done. we started at 9am and left the hotel at 12.
There were 2 hairdressers and 1 make up artist.
So with your timeline, we would have started at 8am, left the hotel at 11am. All my BMs got dressed at the hotel, I got dressed at the venue.

We’re starting pictures at 12 also and starting to get hair/make up done at 8am. There’s 6 Bridesmaid or Best Man and me, possibly moms, and I’m worried that won’t even be enough time.

@MissJoJoLuff: how large is your family and wedding party. that really only gives you 2 hours for pictures if you plan on doing them all before hand, so you can be done and out of the way when guests arrive
I have 4 siblings, and my Fiance 1, and we are doing first look at 10 for a 3 pm ceremony

We did something similar:
8:00 AM – makeup artist comes to my parents’ home to do my makeup/hair
9:00 AM- mom and 4 bridesmaids get their makeup and hair done. Change into dresses.
11:00 AM – we leave for venue
12:00 PM – Arrive at venue, photogs meet us there. I change into my dress and put on final accessories. Some bridals/formals. Groomsmen are concurrently getting their formals done.
12:30 PM – First look. Bridal party gets sandwhiches for lunch delivered.
12:50 PM – Bridesmaid photos, bridal party, family formals and us.
2:00 PM – Ceremony start
2:45 PM – Ceremony end
2:45 – 3:00 PM – A few more photos, then leave for reception!
