The Day has arrived-it’s all about me! how do I make sure I am stress free!

I often see the Groom and his party before the bride on the day and the guys have had a great morning leading up to the wedding-they have often had a surf, played golf , generally relaxed which is often the opposite to the bride and he bridesmaids! So what is the secret for us girls? I am told the No.1 secret is to be organised and start early with hair and makeup. Upon chatting to specialist in this field I am told these are the timeframes to allow for:

Bride’s makeup: 45 to 60 minutes
Bride’s hair: One hour
Bridesmaids’ makeup: 45 minutes per person
Bridesmaids’ hair: 30 minutes per person

Here is a great Sample of getting ready timetable I found too but of course this depends on amount of bridesmaids and styles chosen etc

Sample Getting-Ready Timelime:
(4 p.m. ceremony start time; hair and makeup for the bride and four bridesmaids
10:00 a.m.Bride’s makeup
Bridesmaid #1’s hair

I hope this helps although I know you are all over it-I think enjoying this special time with your friends is the key too. It’s fun to have nibbles, a little drink and share this important time as its special and unique and a one off. PS: Keep stressy people away as it is your day l!
