How many BMs? What else do you have to do that morning? Maybe ask the makeup artist what they think, they definitely have more experience with this than I do!

mmmm for my wedding at 2, i had 3 people (2 doing hair, one makeup) for 8 people including me and it took us 9-1ish. makeup i think took 30-40 mins each?

depends on how many BMS really. ask your MUA what she advises

Do you have 1 person doing both hair AND make-up. Or 1 MUA AND 1 stylist?


Bride hair and make-up requires about 2.5 hours, depending on the hair style that you choose. Hair and make-up for everyone else requires about 45 minutes per service. So if you have 1 bride and 3 others, and all 4 people are getting both services, that’s 7 hours of labor. You need all labor to be done by 12:15 for a 1pm wedding to allow time for getting dresses on, jewelry on, and last minute things.


So if you have only 1 person doing both hair and make-up, you will need that person to start super effing early. In other words, you need to get a 2 person team. They should start at 8:30-9am.
