So the day has finally arrived after all the months of preparation and detailed planning and as you wake up on the morning of your wedding day, the final few hours before you walk down the aisle are here… its time to ‘get ready'!!
I am always being asked by brides, how long will it all take to get ready? The simple answer is ‘Longer than you think’! It can vary, but you will need to allow at least three hours for your hair, make-up and getting into your dress. Remember that If your hairstylist and make-up artist have been booked to attend not only to you, but also a party of Bridesmaids and the Mother of the Bride, the process can take a great deal longer! You will also need to factor in time for your photographer too, especially if you want to have the ‘getting ready’ shots or time for photos before the ceremony.
The key to a relaxing and enjoyable experience is to have the morning planned carefully. Having helped hundreds of brides to get ready, my top tip for a stress free morning is to book professional help with your hair and make-up and have a trial for both a few weeks before so you know what you are going to look like and how long it is going to take. An experienced professional will also be able to tell you how much time will be needed for the whole party to get ready and what time you will have to start. I always make a plan for my brides, that way they know they will be ready on time and they can relax!!
