#1 Timelines are key
Having a wedding day timeline is absolutely crucial to how your day will run, and it all starts with getting ready.
Ask your photographer what time they require beauty services completed by to ensure there is no confusion with timelines on your wedding day morning. If your beauty vendor does not provide a schedule for the services, create your own and allocate a time slot for each bridal party member. When you put your day-off timeline together, keep these time frames in mind:
Hair: 30-45 mins for each bridesmaids, MOB/MOG, attendants. Bride 60- 90 mins
Makeup: 30-40 mins for each bridesmaids, MOB/MOG, attendants. Bride 60 mins
Touch up time for all bridal party members at the end of services 10-15 mins
#2 Prepare your space
The best rooms to get ready in are large enough for your bridesmaids, hair and makeup artists, photographers and anyone else who might stop by. Don't over look the importance of a room with great natural lighting, your beauty team and photographer will thank you. Try to prepare two separate areas for your beauty team, one close to a window for your makeup artist and the other close to a power out-let for hot tools. Clear tables and have chairs ready for your team so they can set up and get started straight away!
#3 Hang your dresses and veil
The wedding dress, bridesmaids dresses and veil should be removed from the bags to allow the fabric to settle and air first thing in the morning, This also makes for a cute photo opportunity!
#4 Plenty of food for your crew
Everyone will be busy and focused on getting ready on the wedding day morning, put your MOH or bridesmaids in charge of pre-ordering nutritional food to snack on through out the day. And call ahead for your coffee orders to avoid waiting in queues.
5# Create a playlist
Great tunes can set the perfect vibe, create a playlist that reminds you of the fun times you shared with your squad. And don't forgot to pack a speaker so you can get those tunes pumping!
6# Steam your dresses
I have saved the best for last and this one is so often overlooked. Ladies steam those dresses before your beauty team arrives! No wants their hair done in a room full of humidity!
