    @imanw:  

    I plan on a 3.30pm ceremony, and am staying at the venue the night before so hopefully will get all the table stuff out ready to go. On the day of we will set up the outside and flowers that morning probably about 10am and then have lunch, then get ready.

    Our flowers will be in water and not in direct sunlight, so I’m not worried about wilting.

     

    I think you should set up before you get hair and makeup done, you don’t want to spoil anything or get green hands or anything like that! Hopefully you can just give direction and then leave the rest with someone you trust if you feel like you are running out of time

    I am going to set up the night before and leave the flowers until the morning of. 

    I saw this thing on pinterest where the bride set up one table at her house and took a picture and then everyone helping her knew exactly how she wanted it and set up for her. I would do that if possible so you don’t have to worry about it. Setting up always takes longer than planned
