@luvmesumhim:  Hiya! Just saw your time line

I have no idea if this is realistic- my own time line scares me. I think you may be underestimating the getting dressed time—depending on your style of dress.

 

But I really wrote to warn you, please call the MAC counter to make sure they do makeup that early. I am getting my makeup done at a MAC counter and I called 2 places and they both will not start makeup until 11am even though they open at 10am. DOUBLE CHECK!!!

good luck

@luvmesumhim:  It may be different by you. I tried two in Los Angeles and now I just think I am going to do the closer apointment and be rushed on the later end of things but my ceremony is at 2pm.

Call and ask maybe they are open earlier.

Well that’s good! I think Sephora might be the way to go. Just bring pictures or do a trial before hand if you can. I just did a trial yesterday and with a few tweaks I loved my make-up. Good luck!!

It takes longer than 15 mins to get dressed. Do you have a corset or just zip up? It still took forever for the hose, dress (dont ruin the hair), shoes. Personally I would pay more for the MUA to show up at the salon. It just worth it for me to not be a stress ball my wedding day.

Ask the photographer how long the First Look photos will take. Keep in mind you have to find a place that the guests wont see you and you have to walk from that location back to the ceremony location. It might only be 2-3 mins each way, but that time adds up!

Do you have a place that you’ll be going to afterwards? Not a place you will pay for guest meals, but a word of mouth the B&G will be eating/hanging out at X Bar if you want to grab a drink.
