Hey everyone. I am trying to figure out a pre-wedding timeline. We are getting married at 3:30, and we are not doing photos beforehand. I recently found out that my salon booked us for 9am for hair and makeup. I thought it was going to be around 11, but apparently they booked 2 weddings on that day, so we are 9am, with not a lot of wiggle room. Does this seem too early? There are about 7 or 8 of us getting hair and makeup done. What would be a typical timeline before the ceremony? I’m freaking out because I’m worried my hair and makeup is going to look like crap if I get it done too early.

I don’t think it is too early. My wedding starts at 5:30, and we are going to start getting our hair done at 11:30. My hair will be specifically done at 1:45, and my makeup at 2:30, so I think if you are one of the last to go, you will be fine.

I am sure it will look fine. Maybe make sure you have a back of up lipgloss/lipstick. You could use the spare time to maybe have a light lunch for you and the girls? Its always good to make sure people eat.
And like PP stated go last so there is less time.

I think that’s about right… my ceremony isn’t until 7pm, but we ARE doing pictures before – which start around 4 (getting ready, etc.) First look at 4:30, and then bridal party pictures at 5:30…… there are 8 of us getting hair/makeup done and we’re starting at 9am also, so i think it sounds like you’re right on schedule. You don’t want to be rushed so the earlier the better – just make sure to buy a good powder to reapply and a lip gloss. 🙂

I don’t think it’s too early at all. Our ceremony starts at 4:30 and our hair starts at 9:30. They’ll do yours last so it’s the freshest.
