timeline help?

Ok so our ceremony starts at 2:00 pm and Im going to assume we would need to be there 1:30-1:45 the latest. But what time should I have everyone ready by? do you think 12:30-12:45 would be good so we can get some pictures done?

Also what time should I have the make-up artist and hair lady there to do mine and everyone's hair? Make-up will probably take like 30-45 mins, and hair Idk. Any suggestions?? Anyone having similar situation??

Thanks girls!!

    I'm having similar problems with my timeline - but I'm doing the first look and formal group shots BEFORE my ceremony - so I have to be ready and have my girls ready long before.  So far I know when we start the photos - my MUA gave me estimates for our make up and I havent found a hair person yet.  But I suggest you ask everyone involved for time estimates and go from there.  I'm giving myself a 10 minute cushion for everything but it looks crazy.... I'm going to be ready for a 6:30 ceremony at 3:30?????

    ask your venue for a timeline - mine worked with me to do mine - Also ask the hair and MUA - mine told me what time they would need to be there to make it work :) HTH!

    I'm working on this now. I'm getting my hair and makeup done at 2:15 for a 5 PM ceremony.  My photog shows up for getting ready pix at 2:30, and then the Wedding Party will take pictures from 3:15-4:15.

    My ceremony is at 4:30 and at 1:30 I'm doing my first look then going to a location for bride & groom portraits........ so I'll be getting my makeup done around 12/12:30pm.
