My ceremony starts at 5pm. I have 6 bridesmaids and the bride getting hair and makeup so 7 total. We have 1 makeup artist and 1 hair stylist. The photographer is coming at 1:30 and the limo is getting us at 3:20 and we will arrive at the venue for 4ish for a 5pm ceremony start time. What time should hair and makeup start? Thanks!

    My wedding is at 1:30pm and I have 2 MUA and 1 hair stylist and we will be starting as early as 7am.


    The recommendation is to ask each vendor how much time they need per person and back track from there, allowing time for them to arrive and set up as well as a buffer after they are finished to touch you up and pack up to leave.

    I have 6 of us getting ready and limo picking us up at 3;30 and we are starting at 8:30am. my stylist said it'll also take 45 mins per person and an hour for the bride. So I would probably start at 7;30am. With that being said my MUA said that if i had 7 or more people to get ready she would need to bring an extra person so i would definitely confirm that your stylists are not bringing an extra stylist to help!

    Yes, I know for sure it’s only 1 stylist and 1 makeup artist. It’s all I booked for. My girls are getting really simple hair styles. They said they need 45 minutes per person.

    Did your hair and makeup person actually confirm one person per item when you have that many people? I would check with them because they typically bring extra hands when it's a big group because they likely have other events they need to work so they don't want to be stuck with one group for a full day. 45min to an hour per person is typical for both services so if they are actually only bringing one hair and one makeup person, you'll have to time it accordingly. Don't forget to factor in meal breaks.

    No ours was at 2:30 but we had way less people to get ready...you'll be the last person they do but they'll set your hair earlier and do touch ups right before you leave....she started mine at 7 my mom and everyone else came for 9. I'd definitely ask her how much time she thinks she'll need

    I needed to be done at 11:30 (was slightly late) but we started at 7am. I had myself (hair and makeup) my mom (hair and makeup) my daughter (hair) and mother in law (hair) with one person doing the hair and makeup. I asked her what time we would need to start.

    Since you have a large number of people and depending if hair and make up are bringing back up I would Highly speak to them to see what their game plan is for the wedding day, this way you both can plan out your day.

    Your hair and makeup vendors should let you know how much time they need per person as it’ll vary. My makeup artist needs 1 hour per person

    I think 8am would definitely give you a decent amount of buffer time

    Thank you! So do you think an 8am start time makes sense?

    Both my hair and makeup artist said they need about 45 mins pet person. So that's just over 5 hours to get ready. Personally I'd give 6-6.5 hours just to have buffer room if anything goes wrong.
