Honestly, I think that’s too early. My hair and makeup was done around 2:30 and our ceremony started around 5:30. It sounds like this way you’ll have a lot going on AFTER you get hair and makeup done which I don’t think is the best plan. What time are all these other things taking place? Do you NEED a rehearsal?

lxnd2 :  I would do the rehearsal, setting up, etc., and THEN get your hair and makeup done (around lunch time). Then take pictures, then have your ceremony.

Yeah- no. Do everything you need as far as seeting up wise before you get hair and make up done.

I was ready at 3pm. Our wedding was also an outdoor wedding an it was hot. 112F! Our ceremony didn’t start until 8pm but we had a preparty and took lots of pictures. I recommend you to get an updo if you have long hair. Our wedding lasted until 5am and my makeup and hair was still in great shape.

lxnd2 :  I think it depends on the style you’re having, what the weather will be like, and what you’ll be doing. I had mine done at 9.30am and when the reception finished at 5am it was still perfect (bar my lips obvs which needed topping up as I just wore a light gloss). However, other than a bit of dancing I wasn’t rushing around, and it wasn’t hot, and my hair was a pretty structured up-do with a ton of pins and hairspray holding it in place. 

If you plan to wear you hair loose/in a less structured style, it is likely to be hot, or you will be rushing around, I would definitely get it done later

That is early but personally I’d rather have it done and out of the way, I would hate for it to be rushed in case the rehearsal or anything else takes longer and your MUA only has a limited amount of time. You’d be surprised how quickly time goes by! If they do it right it should last with the right setting spray but the weather/outdoors/humidity should be something to consider too. If you can, I’d make sure there is someone who can do hair/makeup touch ups throughout the day. My wedding ceremony was at noon and reception was at 2-7pm. Hair and makeup for my girls and I began at 4am. I thought this was crazy early but by the time they got around to my hair and makeup we barely finished with enough time to take pictures and rush to the chapel. My makekup did not budge (lipstick a little, but easily re-applied) but the humidity got the best of my hair at the end of the evening.

lxnd2 :  my make-up lasted with zero issues apart from the lip-gloss; one of the reasons I had it done professionally as if I’d done it myself no way would it have lasted. Unless it’s very hot/humid, or you wipe at youor face, if they use good products it should stay put, so I wouldn’t be too worried. Will see if I can find a pic of mine to upload.

I got married at 4:30 on my wedding day, and due to timeline/venue location, I had to get mine done at 8:30. I had the same worry you did. If it’s quality hair and makeup though, you will be fine. Mine stayed the entire day without needing any touch ups and there are pictures of me at 10pm where it still looks flawless. You should be ok!

Try to schedule your trail for as early in the day as possible. Then go about a busy day and see how it all holds up

lxnd2 :  We got married at 5:00 pm. We did all our photos beforehand (photographer started around noon with the details photos… bridesmaid “getting ready photos” started somewhere around 1:00 pm). I had my hair appointment at 9:00 am and my makeup appointment at 11:00 am and I was just fine, haha. My hair dresser purposely kept my curls tight/on the crunchy Shirley-Temple-side of things, so that they would fall naturally throughout the day and be perfect for photo time. She taught me how to finger comb them if they were still looking “too perfect” before photos. It worked perfectly.

6:00 am sounds REALLY early. Unless if you’re planning on having some sort of whole-group breakfast event that you didn’t mention, haha.
