We chose to do so photos (except a few family shots) before the ceremony,  so that we could enjoy cocktail hour and mingle with our guests.   It worked well

MSNDBride:  A 2-hour photo gap is really long. Are you at least having a cocktail hour for guests? Or are they just hanging out somewhere waiting?

Almost two hours of cocktail hour/photos seems long to me.

MSNDBride:

 

I was SO against the first look because I wanted to be traditional and for him to see me walking down the aisle. It’s my single biggest regret. I was sooo nervous walking down the aisle. I think I would have been more calm had I seen my groom before. And we could have gotten more couple pics.

 

By The Way I don’t think you’ve allowed enough time for hair and make up. Honestly I’d double the time, even a simple look takes a long time and you don’t want to rush that. I allowed 4 hours and we were still rushed at the end, and I didn’t have anything elaborate done. Just something to think about.

Yeah, that is way more time than you need for photos.

MSNDBride:  I can’t imagine you’d need that much time for photos of that many people. Did you ask your photographer how much time they recommend for such an intimate party? I would think an hour should be plenty.

MSNDBride:  Omg, I did three hours for my hair and we were so rushed that I ended up being late and getting upset about that. It was the first real “bridezilla” moment I had and I felt terrible about it. I would definitely budget out more time for hair and makeup. We took less than an hour for the photos and we fit a lot in. Two hours would be a huge gap and you might have some grumpy guests. Everything else looks good. ๐Ÿ™‚

defintely! I honestly didn’t retouch anything but my lipgloss (I had airbrush make up, so worth the money!). But like I was just so nervous at being rushed, it was terrible lol

mt sister slotted like seriously 6 hours and it still felt rushed. I don’t know how that happened lol
