I  also have a ceremony time of 4 pm and that looks about right to me. I am a little unsure of my timeline still but yours looks good i think

My ceremony is at 4 as well, but I have 6 BM’s and myself to get ready so we’re starting hair and make up at 9, and heading to the winery at 2:30 for pics. Make up for you might take an hour on it’s own, that might be the only time frame I would adjust.

Seems tight to me. We had a 5:30 ceremony and started hair/makeup at 9:30 am (for me, 5 BMs and 2 moms).  We had 1 MUA and 2 hair stylists.  The day was super rushed!

I think it looks good.  It probably depends on you personally (how many photos you want of each group, if you are changing locations, how cooperative everyone is/if you have kids).  I don’t think you’ll have any problems.  It looks like a good plan.
