One of the biggest questions I’m asked is when to book times for hair and makeup?
- The easiest way to plan this, is work out your ceremony time.
- Work out the travel time between ceremony location and where you’re getting ready.
- Ideally, you need to be dressed one hour before you want to leave. This allows you time to enjoy the moment, settle into your dress, have a glass of champagne with your bridal party and basically just enjoy the moment…..did I mention allowing time for great photos too!
- If you work back from there and then you’ll be able to work out the time for your hair and makeup.
Usually, they allow one hour per girl for hair and makeup.
If you’re looking at a 3pm ceremony, you’re half an hour travel between your ceremony and your accommodation, you’d be leaving your accommodation at 2:30 so you need to be dressed by 1:30.
If it takes half an hour to get into your dress, you’ll be looking at getting dressed at 1:00. Three bridesmaids plus yourself, Four hours. Work back from there and that would be your ideal time.
Length of time for girls hair and makeup can change, depending on the team your have hired for these services.
