Brides usually have a ton of questions about their bridal beauty.  I decided to start answering the most popular questions on my blog.  

How much time should I allow for hair and makeup on my wedding day?  

I get this question with every bride.  I always tell my brides more time is better than less time.  Why?  Last minute things always come up on the wedding day that the bride needs to address - such as flowers, guests, seating etc.. - and that eats up time.  Also, I always tell my brides to factor in extra time to enjoy the getting ready process with your bridesmaids and family.  

For the actual time, I like to count backwards from the time my bride needs to be in her dress for first looks or photos.  Depending on the time it took at the trial, I usually factor in 2 to 3 hours for bridal hair and makeup.  For example, if the bride needs to be in her dress at 3 pm, I would schedule her at 12 noon. 

Bridesmaids and others are scheduled every 45 minutes. I insist that bridesmaids and others bring photos of hair and makeup ideas to help us give them the look they want.
