Hello fellow hivers!
Does anyone have suggestions for how to make a timeline for the day of the wedding? My ceremony is starting at 2:30 pm so I need to figure out how to structure my morning of when for my bridesmaids to get to the suite for hair and makeup and such? And suggestions on how to organize the day?

there’s a lot of info on this in the wiki and a bunch of different examples.
