Decide who your hairstylist or salon will be first and see if they can guide you with that.

When I found the salon I wanted, they had a very organized structure and they told me the timeline of the morning after I told them how many people they would be doing. They typically know how long it will take to do certain styles and they do these kinds of things every weekend in the summer (wedding season) 🙂

Also, I’ve been in weddings where we go to the salon in the morning, and other weddings where they came to us. I think that just depends on what’s easiest for you or what the salon allows. For my wedding, she came to our hotel and it was definitely easiest for us because I didn’t have to worry about gathering the girls and transporting people on time. They just came over to my hotel room and hung out and we had coffee and bagels and fruit and stuff. Just as a heads up, I do think it’s typical for them to charge a flat travel fee though to cover their gas etc. 

I hope this helps!

I think some of it depends whether you’ll want getting ready photographs. If you want posed ones, you’ll need to allow some time for that, presumably after hair/makeup but before getting dressed.

It was suggested to me that I get my makeup done before the photographer arrives, then have my hair done and have my makeup “touched up” so it looks like I woke up gorgeous lol.

Also I’d suggest that your hair and makeup are done first, as you are the priority. That way if anything runs over time wise, your look isn’t rushed.

Have you booked your hair and makeup artist yet? At this point, it might be too late to book with someone who will come to you- I booked mine back in January and my wedding is 2 months after yours. You probably need to figure out where you want to book and when they can fit you in first! I’d aim for something around noon or 1 for hair and makeup, you can have a hearty brunch beforehand and then a quick snack before the ceremony.

happyme123 :  She probably meant that she was available at some point on your wedding day, not that she was completely available the entire day. Saturdays are big days for hair salons, not just for special events like weddings but for anyone getting their hair done who works a regular 9-5 Mon-Fri schedule. Who knows, it’s possible another bride booked her for that time! I’d get yourself on her calendar ASAP- can she do anytime before 2? I think after 3:15 might be cutting it a bit close.
