Hey Jen. How's the planning going? Sounds like you are getting down to the end things. About the hair & make up. My sister and I went, it took about an hour. We had hair washed before going. They weren't crazy about our hair being damp before getting there though. Our ceremony was at 5 so I think I had my appointment for 1:30. It was plenty of time for us. I did my own make up and only had 30 minutes pre bridal photos. Again which was enough for us.

I would schedule for 11am or 12. I think they can do 3 or 4 people at one time. My sister and I did ours at the same time. They did a great job too. It was well worth the money. Just have an idea or photo and they will copy that. They do have magazines and books with ideas which we went the day before to look at. I ended up going with one I brought with me anyways. Best wishes and happy planning.

Thanks for the info. Did you use the ones that EDR provided or did you bring your own?

Thank you for the info, I think I am going to make the appointment for 11, which is probably too early, but I don't want to be running late. Tracy, the new coordinator said that the bridal party would be scheduled an hour apart from each other, I wonder why they won't schedule the bridal party at the same time as me.

I hate running late and I am sure no everything is going to run in a timely manner so I am going to TRY to be patient and leave extra time. Any suggestions from the married?


My wedding was at 4PM and we (my sister and I) had our hair appt at 12PM, and then they did my makeup afterwards.... I thought it was going to be way too early, and I'd be hanging out in my room trying not to mess up my hair and makeup and be aggravated I got it done too soon... I was wrong!

I think I got back to my room around 2PM, my parents and sister came over to my room at 2:30PM, (to help me get dressed, do my jewerly, and just hang out) and the photog showed at 3:15PM....it was perfect timing- I didn't feel rushed, but I def didn't feel like I was just hanging out, waiting.....

Oh yea-- I did the Pearl Sensation spa package that morning-- my spa appt was at 9:30AM-- from 9:30AM to 11AM, then I went back to the room, took a shower, washed my hair (they don't wash your hair at your hair appt), and grabbed a "shuttle" back to the spa for my hair/makeup appt... It was the perfect day-- to have the relaxing massage and facial that morning, and have my hair and makeup that afternoon-- it "filled" up my day- so I wasn't just sitting around, freaking out, but I didn't feel rushed.

 

I DEF recommend a massage or spa treatment the morning of your wedding-- it was the perfect start to the perfect day! :)

I used the ones EDR provided. They were just white paper bags with sand in them for weight and the candles. I would definitely bring extra candles this way you will have the lighting all night. Wish I would of done that.

Jen I'm not sure about that with the scheduling. It was only myself and sister so it wasn't an issue. I actually had my TA schedule it for me. Heather from Berman took care of that for us.

No problem. That what this is for. You get alot of great tips on things you don't think of. It can save you some money and help you be more organized in your planning. You really don't have to over do it either. All their weddings and set ups are beautiful..
