Our wedding is at 5 and the place Im getting my hair and makeup is about 50 mins. to an hour away from our church (its in the country). So Im wondering what time I should get ready? I have to be at the church for pictures at 3. I will already be in the city where I will be getting my hair done. What time do you think I should set my appointment? What time are your ceremonies and what time are you getting hair and makeup done?

My ceremony was at 2pm, but I had to be at the church at 12:30 for photos. My hair appt was 9:30 and my makeup was 10:30. We had the stylists at our home though, so we didn’t have to worry about travel time. I would suggest an earlier appt for each (but not TOO early) so you don’t have to stress getting where you need to be on time. Maybe 11:30 for the hair and 1:00 for the makeup?

We start taking pictures at 3:15 and our wedding is at 5:30, so I think we’re going to start hair and make up at around 10:30.

My make up appointment is 12:15 and my hair appointement is at 1:15. Our photographer will be coming around 4 to start taking pictures. My ceremony starts at 6

My ceremony is at 6 p.m. and hair and make-up start at 1:30. This sounded really early to me (we’re not doing many pictures before), but maybe it’s about right.

@jadeblue: I feel like it’s early too but I guess it’s right! It just seems weird to sit around for hours waiting for the photog to get there!

@clarebee: I can remember being in friends’ weddings where we were all dressed and made-up hours early, and pretty much sitting around, bored and hungry, waiting for something to happen. I’d like to avoid that as much as possible, but the professionals want time to take their time. Hopefully we’ll be ready early, but not crazy early.

I think hair is starting around 11 and makeup around noon…we’re meeting for our first look around 4pm and the ceremony is around 6:45.
