How many hours before your ceremony did you get your hair/makeup done?
I currently have a 12pm appointment for hair (which will be an updo). Ceremony is at 5pm. My mom was at the salon today and another hair dresser said she thinks maybe it will be too late because it could take 2 hours to do my hair and I should have an earlier appointment but they are booked earlier, so they would have to reschedule those people.
So I’m trying to figure out if it would really be too late. I am getting dressed at the ceremony site not at a house so after getting my hair done I will be going to the ceremony site, which is a half hour drive, which puts me at the latest at 2:30pm. There I have to get makeup done (someone is coming there to do it), get dressed and do whatever pictures they do before hand, which probably won’t be extensive. Then ceremony is at 5pm. Is 2.5 hours really not enough time to get dressed, get makeup and do pictures? Obviously I’m new to all this and I want to have enough time but I don’t want to sit around for hours with nothing to do.
I am going to call the photographer tomorrow and see what time he recommends meeting but I figured it couldn’t hurt to ask here.
