The groom and groomsmen will be helping you get ready?

When will you and your groom eat lunch? You need to make sure you eat something.

And are you going to do any groom/bride pictures? I think you’ll have time in that picture section you have but make sure you schedule for it.

My only suggestion for lunch would be if you plan on your wedding party taking any pictures without you then you could eat a sandwich or something really quick while they are taking some group shots. I know some brides have pictures taken of just the bridesmaids or just the groomsmen. Or you could eat real quick while your groom is taking his pictures with his groomsmen.

I’m not even close to organising mine yet but i’m just wondering how many bridesmaids you have and how many hair/male-up people you have?

I was just bridesmaid in a friends wedding and there were 4 bridesmaids and the bride, she had one make-up lady and 2 hair people between all of us, they all got there at 8am and they didn’t finish with the last person until 1pm. So just want to make sure you’ve scheduled enough time for that. I’m sure they would have given you timelines but please make sure you add a buffer in there! =)

@subola:  I agree with what Missy_Star said, my hair and make up for myself and three other girls took from 9 – 12:30 or later with two people working on us. For my wedding we were at the salon longer than I had planned. I scheduled 3 hours and it took longer. We rushed to get to our hotel room which was right nearby to change, hurried through changing and struggled to meet up with my dad who brought our bouquets even though he brought them directly to us because nobody was free to go downstairs. We got to our first look pictures for 2PM. We got there on time but the guys were a little bit late. We took 3 hours for photos and my ceremony started at five. 

It’s good that you’ve got free time worked in with lots of the word relax written down on the schedule, but in my experiences as a bridesmaid and a bride those won’t actually be relaxing periods.

@subola:  check with your photographer, they will be the best to help you set time tables for what is needed for photos.  Mine and I actually sat down this week and said these are the things we already have figured out. (ceremony time, dinner and so on) so working off of that…

 

For what it’s worth, I have a 3 pm ceremony and a 10 am first look, Also take into account your wedding guests will probably arrive anywhere up to 30 minutes befor the ceremony, so do you want to still be doing pictures when they are arriving?

We are planning on being done a full1 hour before ceremony start time, so we can all regroup, and take a moment to sit, and then go into hiding while the guests arrive.
