    I don't know what a good time w/ be I am the only one getting my hair and make up done and they are coming to me. Pictures will be before the wedding so I am thinking they will start about 3:45 for me...

    Here is my photographer timeline that I created and I have no idea how realistic it is. Keep in mind though that I know pictures are important but I don't want a gazillion so I realize that my times maybe be short...but I'm okay w/ that...

      If you want to be done and ready for the photographer at 3:30PM, maybe you should start around 12:30PM. This will give you an hour for hair, and hour for makeup and then another hour to relax, get your dress on and have a few drinks. You may want to start a little later depending on how much time you want to have once you're done. But you definitely don't need to start sooner than 12:30PM.

        Thanks Jen! I was thinking 12:00ish so that is good. At this point too I don't know where to hair people will come (Dreams or FA) because we won't know until the day before if the imperial suite is booked the night before. If it is then we can't get the suite until around 3:00 maybe a little sooner and if it isn't then we can get it as early as 10:00am that day. So If I have to get ready at dreams then I need to also factor in driving time. But still I think 12:00 - 12:30 would be good....:)
