So you’re having first look — photos — then ceremony?


Depends when you want your first look right? So if first look is at 4.30 / 5, the bridesmaids can have start getting their makeup first, then whilst their hair is being done, the MUA can do your makeup and hair. Your makeup/hair probably 1-2 hrs? Bridesmaids should be quick, 30 min each? Probably start at 12pm? 8.30 am seems a bit crazy early!

My ceremony is at 6pm and an hour away from my hairdresser and he made my appt for 12:30pm.. he said that would be plenty of time. I’d be worried doing it any earlier than noon, afraid of my hairstyle not staying until 10:30pm.

We started getting ready at 9AM for a 4:30 ceremony and we didnt have a first look. My MUA had to do NINE of us. I also had my hairdresser on site. Also, I had a mimosa bar and brunch so I just wanted a relaxing day vs rushing.
