I don’t know about transportation because I didn’t book any, but I think it’s crazy that at 7 months out everyone is booked. I had a 4 month engagement and got an unbelievably amazing makeup artist (who also did my hair, but that was a last minute adjustment). You will find someone, don’t worry!

If it’s true that you’re located in Philadelphia I can definitely believe that many artists are already booked.  It happens it the major metro areas but I’m surprised for you too at 7 months out.  But the good thing is cities have TONS of talented artists so don’t give up!

We booked our limos (18 person stretch SUV and an 8 person limo) 4-ish months out, and our weekend is a wedding weekend AND a prom weekend, so they were more expensive, but still plenty to go around!

You definitely did not wait too long to book someone to do your hair and make-up. However, you may have to go to the salon rather than having the professionals come to you.

My stepdaughter lives in your city, and I had to find someone there to do my hair (I did my own make-up), and I went to a woman who was highly recommended and she did a fantastic job of using a flat iron to create the loose curls for my updo.  I think by the time my DSD’s friend recommended this stylist, we were only a couple of months out from the wedding

Keep in mind, I was stepmother of the bride and NOT the bride, so you certainly could ask for a more bridal look:

I can PM you the contact info if you would like.

As for transportation, you should be fine.  The only month that seems to be terrible for brides to try to book transportation is the month in which I was married:  May, due to all of the business the companies do for proms.  I had a dreadful time just trying to get a regular limo (I originally wanted a white Rolls Royce) for my wedding.

Try not to worry! If I was able to plan my whole wedding in about 5 months in NYC on a fall, October holiday weekend, anyone can do it! And it was probably closer to 4.5 months since I was a bit slow about getting started and then i started to worry just like you! But it all worked out fine!  I booked my hairstylist about 6 weeks before and my transport 3 mo before. I literally hired my DOC 2 weeks before the wedding and she was AMAZING. And they good thing about living in a big city is that there are lots of other people to chose from!
