When should I tell my hair and makeup team to arrive/start?
We would not be able to answer this as it would be based on how many staff members they are bringing and how many people they are performing services on. Your best bet is to tell them what time you need to be FINISHED and then ask them what time they recommend arriving. In general, we find hair and makeup to be the main reason weddings run late. Therefore, we recommend having your hair and makeup arrive 15-30 minutes before they suggest to as a buffer for things like touch-ups.
What if I don’t plan to do a first look?
Unless there is a gap between the ceremony and cocktail hour, you will then need to take all of your couple portraits, family photos and bridal party photos after the ceremony for around 45 minutes. You will most likely not be able to attend cocktail hour as you will still need those last 15 minutes to have your dress bustled and line-up for reception entrances. Keep in mind without a first look, your number of portraits will be somewhat limited.
I have extra things I want in my timeline, how do I account for it?
If you want to do things like first look with Dad or with bridesmaids, a Katuba signing, marriage license signing, private prayer, pre-ceremony vow exchange, parent gift exchange, or anything else that may take time in your timelines, generally book at least 15 minutes for each.
