When I called to set up the appointment for my ladies and I to have our hair done before the wedding (there will be 5 or 6 of us in all), I told the receptionist that the ceremony was at 7pm. Our hair appointment is at noon! I was kind of hoping to be able to relax by the pool or in the hottub at the hotel that morning. 🙂
Is 7 hours too early? This ‘do is going to have to last 12 hours as a result!

I think that is pretty standard – my hair appointment is at 9am for my 4:30pm ceremony and my reception will go until 11pm. Hair stylists are good at what they do and will use enough hairspray and bobby pins – you should have no worries about the style lasting all evening!
You have so many other things you will need to be doing that day, you really aren’t going to have time to lay by the pool and relax.

My ceremony starts at 445 pm and hair and makeup for my gals are starting around 10am. That is partially because we’re doing pics at 2pm.
Gah – 7 hours is a long time to mess it up.
I really don’t know. 🙁

Shoot, I voted wrong.
I do think that is a long time, unless all of you are having an updo.

I’m in a wedding this weekend and my hair appointment is 8 hours before the ceremony. I think this is because we are all getting our hair done by the same 1 or 2 people so we have to make sure everyone’s is done before we leave to get ready/take pictures. I was really surprised when she told me I had an early morning appointment though. I don’t think you’ll have to worry about it staying though. They usually use a few cans of hair spray and a few million bobby pins. I’ve never had a problem with my hair coming undone before the night is over. If you’re only having one stylist do everyone’s hair, I would suggest that you go last just to make sure yours will stay and also so you won’t have to worry about it as long and you can do any last minute things that morning.

Everyone’s hair is different so you can’t automatically assume that it will do the exact same thing as someone else’s. I know my hair well enough that it won’t last 7hrs before the ceremony and still look good 7hrs later when the reception is over, even with all the bobby pins and styling products in the world. For someone else, they may have no issue with it. This is why you should if at all possible use your regular stylist since they know how your hair behaves. A stylist you hire for the day who has never met you before won’t know any of that, despite however much experience they may have in that field otherwise.
