Itinerary

I am a pretty organized person.. soo I am attempting to come up with a wedding day (or weekend) itinerary for myself, and the bridesmaids. I am struggling with times and what order to do things.. hair, make up, etc. The only thing I for sure know is that our ceremony is at 6:30 pm! What do you guys think? Any ideas or templates?

    Probably a good idea to ask your bridal party who wants to have hair and/or makeup done first, and then let your hair and makeup stylists know so that they can let you know how much time they will need to work on x amount of bridesmaids, plus yourself of course. I have 9 bridesmaids who all want their hair and makeup done, so I need to assume it will take several hours for hair and makeup. In my experience, one bridesmaid will be having her hair done and another bridesmaid will be having her makeup done, and then everyone kind of rotates like that.

    I have a late ceremony as well and have something like this for my timeline:

    Friday:
    1pm -- mani/pedis at the local spa
    4pm -- rehearsal ceremony
    5pm -- rehearsal dinner

    Saturday:
    10am -- breakfast and head to bridal suite
    11am -- make up artists and hair stylists to arrive to bridal suite
    5pm -- pictures
    6pm -- ceremony and reception
