It seems you want to do photos before the ceremony and this is why the photog gave you such a timeline. Maybe talk to the photog and see what is planned for those 2 hours. Are the photos to include getting ready shots? Will it be a problem if BMs are not ready until 10? Can you move some photos to after the ceremony like maybe those with your mom so she can get her hair done while you and BMs are taking photos? It sounds like you need to be making a master time plan and fit everyone in, not just following the photog’s plan.

Why on earth would it take 8 hours for everyone to get ready?  Are you requiring that they get their hair and makeup done?  I guess if it were me I would have my girls do their own hair and makeup (especially since your wedding probably isn’t super formal if it’s so early in the day) and just have my hair and makeup person come at seven to help me get ready…

Though if you really want all your girls to have professional hair and makeup, I guess I would go with the makeup artist who will stagger it to have you ready at 9 and your girls ready at 10, and have your photographer re-work the timeline.

You will definitely need multiple people if you want all the girls to get hair and makeup done too, I’d actually say one each! Unless you want to be awake at 5am or earlier and I seriously doubt your girls will be ok with that!

I think some of the pictures will probably be getting ready pictures with only about an hour or so of actual posted ones but I would check with the photographer.

How many people need to have their hair and makeup done?  I think you should have at least a seperate hair and makeup person.

Hire an MUA that brings on her own seconds and assistants.
