I'm nervous about my wedding day...not forgetting anyone.  I've got to sit down with my Wedding Coordinator and talk through the schedule.

Mine is already 5 pages long!  Hehe.  Ok.... so I'm a bit detail oriented :)


 


Don't forget to put vendors and bridal party phone numbers on there.  This way if a call needs to be made, you can ask someone else to do it and they will already have the number handy!

DON'T WASH YOUR HAIR ON THE SAME DAY AS YOUR WEDDING DAY!!! your hair won't hold the product or curls! second day hair is a much better. wash your hair the night before!!

I have a DOC...but my OCD is in full gear and I planned one on an excel spread sheet and sent it to my planner to look and redo...she was in shock and aw...she was very happy. It is planned down to the minutes.

Oooh! Thanks for the sample timeline and for the reminder to not wash the hair. My stylist said to use dry shampoo if I can't stand not washing the day of.

Yes, me too. I need an approximate time allowance for each of these. I know things vary but like if you have one woman doing hair and some make up for four ladies, how soon do you have to start before hand to keep from stressing?

Our hairdresser and makeup artist have asked to have approximately 45 minutes each per person - and then approximately 30 minutes at the end to fixed up any last bits and pieces before photography/videography begins (like reapply lipstick if some of the girls have eaten - or spray a little more hairspray).

I have scheduled one hour for hair and one hour for makeup per girl.  We are having them done at a salon so we are able to have multiple people working at once.  Our ceremony starts at 4pm but with pictures ahead of time and dressing time, we are going to be done with hair and makeup by 11:30am.  I want to have plenty of time to make it to the church and not stress especially since we are in a city with traffic.

I know often times photographers will help with the wedding day schedule so that they can make sure you plan enough time for everything which gives them the most opportunity to get good pictures.
