All day.  Seriously, I was just  BM in a friend’s wedding and she was so stressed out with last minute DIY projects, and getting her daughter’s nails done, and talking to the coordinator, that she about had a breakdown.

Takeaway?  The bride should be doing absolutely nothing but eating strawberries, drinking mimosas, and getting pretty.  For a 3:00 wedding, I’d make your appointments at 10:00 and hand your phone to someone who’s not a bridesmaid but who will be available to you all day.  Your BMs are there to help, but they have to get ready too…

I think that sounds like a perfect day.  Personally, I was a ball of nerves.  My BMs were all getting ready at my house, and my MUA was working on my mom and sister before myself.  So basically i was sitting there watching wedding movies (my sister put on “Runaway Bride” I swear that was a cruel joke lol) just trying not to throw up!  I would much rather have been somewhat busy.  All in all I got my own hair and makeup done from 3-4:30, so about 1.5 hours.
