My schedule is to be done with hair and makeup by 3 (back to my parents’ house by 3:15 to get ready) and leave for the chapel by 5:25.  I’m not sure we really need that much time.  I normally can get dressed and out the door in like 5 minutes, but this will leave time for some pics if we feel like it.

The hair and makeup artist told me to allow 2 hours for hair and makeup but I think I have more time.  My girls are getting thier own hair and makeup done at their own places then metting up with me at my house to do the finishing touches.

i didn’t want to feel rushed at all.  i wanted to enjoy my day so i went and got my hair done hours beforehand.  i did my own makeup and allowed myself a couple hours for makeup and getting dressed. 

i was so relaxed.   my fi and i were getting ready together and drinking champagne in our hotel room and snacking on a light lunch.

believe it or not, we still didn’t have time to spare before the car came.
