I”m having a 630 ceremony, and my hair and makeup artists are coming to me. I think they’re both arriving at around 11, 11:15 to have myself and my 4 bms done by 2:30, 3:00pm. I was told not to shower the morning of, but to shower the night before and let my hair air dry. As for doing a quick rinse off (not washing my hair) I am probably doing it before hair and makeup, when I first wake up.

Our wedding was at 5:15 but we were having a first look at 2:30pm. For us hair and makeup started at 8:30am because it was a lot of people. The stylist came to the hotel with two assistants. At 8:30 they started with my mom and my mother-in-law, followed by the Maid/Matron of Honor and one bridesmaid, with the jr bridesmaid and flower girl hairstyling left for last since it’d be the easiest. My hair styling started around 12 (though I had my hair blow-dried earlier in the morning), and makeup at 1.

Since everyone was getting ready in my hotel room, I got up really early and was showered and ready by 8:30, when the stylist arrived.

My wedding was at 4:00 pm. I was at the spa at 1:00 pm to get the hair/makeup done; got out of there around 3:00 and went back to my hotel room to get dressed and do my nails. My hair had to be washed and dried before I arrived at the spa.

I would shower the night before.  It is harder to hair to stay in updos with freshly washed hair.  My ceremony was at 6;30 and I had my makeup done at 8 (only time she was available) and hair around noon.  Gave me time to relax in between and not feel stressed.

I had my hair started at 7:30AM for my 11am picture taking time.  I don’t think I got done with my hair and to my hotel room until 10AM.  Then I had an hour to do my makeup myself and get all dressed and have a snack.  Then we quickly rushed over to the church for the pictures.  I think we got there a little late though – maybe 11:15.

My hair took freaking forever.  But I have super thick hair and it always takes about 200 bobby pins to hold it up.

Definitely shower the night before.  You want dirty and dry hair for a stylist.

We are having a ceremony at 4pm and I’ve got myself and 2 of my BM’s scheduled to get our hair styled from 10:30 to 12:30 at the salon.  Since I’m doing wave/curls she said not to wash my hair the day of since your natural hair oils and that help with keeping it curled.
