We have our venue from 8 am – 6pm. start the setup at 8 and wedding is at 2. Trying to figure out how to have the family, friends and bridal party help with it when we also have hair appts. and the need to get spruced up before the pics. It’s an outside ceremony in the month of Aug. and will likely be hot. No one wants to be a sweaty mess before and since it’s a drive to the destination for everyone, I’m freaking out on how to make this work. anyone already juggle this?? Mother of the Bride!

Is there someone that isn’t in the bridal party but still close that you can ask? We are having our wedding at home so we can prep ahead of time but there is still a lot we will need to do on the day. We are also catering ourselves so that is another task. My aunt is going to come in the morning and help. She will be excellent at allocating tasks. If you can get guys to help they generally don’t take as long getting ready.
I’d have a list of all the things that need to be done so there is no running around not knowing what to do. You can just get in and get it done.

Hire someone (or more than one person) that can do it. The last thing I would want is my family and bridal party running around worrying about setting things up in the heat and juggling appointments. Sounds like it will create stress on the day especially if something runs late/early abd throws off the schedule!

Definitely, definitely have someone on the outside take care of the getting ready! I know, as the MOB you want to have the day perfect for your baby, but time to spread out the work! 😀 Sit back, relax, and enjoy the beautiful day she’s about to have!
