Wow! You aren’t leaving any extra time for delays or mishaps or traffic are you? I don’t think you’ve left enough time for breakfast right off the bat, unless its something simple like juice,coffee and bagels.

How many in the Bridal Party getting hair and makeup done?

Cute design, but reading that is a little… stressful. I would take out the “leaving” times and just stick to “arrival.” In one list, not the jumping from side to side format.

You should probably add some extra time for breakfast,yes. I asked about the size of the Bridal Party because each one takes time. For an updo it may be from 45 mins. to an hr. each plus makeup. My daughter’s a stylist and she just figured this out for my nephew’s Bridal Party.

If you are getting married in LA as your profile says, I would leave more time for commuting. Unless you are going across the street, there is no place in LA you can get to in five minutes.

@MrsNeutrino: That’s very “wishful” thinking, hoping they will have 6 stylists available to do your girls’ hair. Are there going to be other patrons in the salon, or are you closing it down just for your BP?

I’m with PP, that’s very precise, it’s made my heart beat — really fast, just reading it. What if someone needs to use the bathroom, and not just pee, if you follow where I’m going. That could add 15 minutes, AT LEAST. I would always allow some lee-way and extra time, JUST TO BE SURE. I wouldn’t want to have everything planned minute by minute and then something go wrong.

BUT, as another PP said — if it works for you, then go with it.

GOOD LUCK.

I would add extra time just in case someone is late if the ladies aren’t staying overnight at the hotel. I would also add in extra time for traffic/accidents. 

To have 6 girls with different hair lengths and possible different hair types, it’s going to take longer. Would you have an appointment? Is it a big salon where 6 stylist will be there? What if one stylist calls off? I can tell you that it takes more than 2 hours for me to get my hair done. I sit under the dryer because I don’t use a blow dryer. And one stylist just doesn’t work on one persons hair at a time. While one is drying, she could be shampooing someone else. And what if the other person is running late? One of your girls could be sitting in the chair for 10 minutes with nothing going on. 

What if your photographer is running late? 

ETA: Okay, this makes it a little better since you are not getting married in LA. I think that’s what has everyone concerned. I would still leave extra time for mishaps. Maybe someone will have stomach issues and disappear for 20 minutes or maybe someone will sleep in. I’m wanting my girls to stay the night in the hotel with me. I know anything can happen in Pittsburgh and make a five minute trip turn into a 2 hour one at the blink of an eye.
