8:30 seems early for you to be getting your hair and makeup done. For my wedding day, hair & makeup started around 8:30 a.m. as well, but my 5 bridesmaids were getting their hair and makeup done too, so I was done last.  My hair and makeup was wrapped up around 1:30 for a 3 pm ceremony. I would probably just call your makeup and hair people back and ask if you can push the appointment back a bit.

My makeup is getting done at 7am (ugh lol), then the bridesmaids makeup will be done, and then my hair.  My ceremony is at 1pm then pictures then dinner reception at 5.  I probably wouldn’t worry about the makeup as long as they give you lipstick and like blotting paper for touchups but I’d be concerned about hair looking fresh for the ceremony!  My MUA wanted to do makeup first because it will last longer than hair

Maybe ask to have your mom and sis done first, and then you so there is less time between the ceremony and your hair and make up?  I guess it depends on how long they have scheduled you for.  My makeup and hair is getting done before my bridesmaids to make sure it’s perfect and there won’t be a rush to finish if things go slow. If we need to rush, the bridesmaids can be rushed on lol

Far too early for me! A good sleep will make more of a positive impact on your appearance than any amount of hair and makeup. I am starting at 10 for a 2pm ceremony, with my moh and mum being done in downtime. I figure I’ll be far too excited to sleep the night before so I’d rather not wake up stupidly early. 🙂
