I don’t think it’s too early if you are taking your pictures before the ceremony. My ceremony is at 6pm and I’m getting my make-up done at 11:30am. I want to have time to relax, eat and then start pictures.

I had my hair done at 9am for a 4pm ceremony (7 hour difference) which is similar to your schedule. I don’t think it’s too early.

I am getting my hair and make-up done at 12 for my 6pm wedding. We are starting pictures at 4pm and I wanted to have some time to relax and eat before we start pictures!

I think the question is what is on your timeline between 12pm and 7pm? Are you getting pictures taken? Bridal party or first look or both? If you start Hair and Makeup at 12pm it should take a good stylist about 2 hour to complete your look, that’s 2pm. You need to build in time for lunch, dressing, touch ups, pictures, transportation to ceremony location, etc. In my experience you’re stylist is right on target with a noon time slot! 

All that said, it’s your timeline. Schedule it all out and see where you land! ๐Ÿ™‚

@Jasminelani: Wow, we have the same wedding date and ceremony time (except I’m on the east coast).  I have a large bridal party, so we’ll be at the salon from 2:30-5p.  I’m not really sure where my appointment falls within that range; we’ll all be hanging out and drinking mimosas while others are getting their services, so it should be fun.  Noon sounds a little early (although not insanely early), but like some of the other ladies have said, a lot will depend on the rest of your timeline for the day, especially if you’re getting a lot of pictures done before the ceremony.  We’re not, but if you are you’ll appreciate the extra time.  Congratulations, and I’m sure you’ll look beautiful!
