I find it a rather unusual request. Are these SOs travelling? Because otherwise I can’t understand the appeal of using up a whole afternoon following you around for 4 1/2 hours. Also, is the entire time for photos? It’d be pretty unusual to have SOs present during the getting dressed / getting ready time. Part of the “cost” of being a bridesmaid (or groomsman) is you spend the a lot of day getting ready with the bride (or groom). But if the whole 4 1/2 hours is photos, maybe the bridesmaids are thinking they’ll be spending a lot of the time idle, watching you and your husband getting photographed.

So what I’m saying is it’s a little hard to answer without a bit more information! But usually, when the time before the wedding is devoted to getting ready, the answer is, “this is just time for me and my bridesmaids”.
