We Do • Determine how much time is needed for hair and makeup. Weddings that feature large bridal parties will require more time for hair and makeup than ceremonies with small bridal parties. Grooms and grooms- men often take care of their own hair, though some grooms might want to schedule hot shaves for themselves and their grooms- men. Grooms should ask groomsmen if they want a hot shave and then work with their barbers to determine how much time it will take to tend to all participants. Brides with large bridal parties may need to book more than two hair and makeup artists so every- one can get done on time. Wedding hair and makeup sessions can last several hours for large bridal parties, so brides should sched- ule their sessions early if their parties are big. Alterations! We also box & preserve your dress after the Big Day! • Make lunch arrangements. Some couples choose to tie the knot and host their recep- tions at the same venue. In such instances, if brides are getting their hair and makeup done at the venue, ask the venue represen- tative if lunch can be provided to the bridal party. Some venues may include small lunch buffets in their reception costs, while others might charge extra. Confirm the availabil- ity and costs, and if it’s unavailable or too expensive, then arrange for lunch to be de- livered. Either way, couples should not skip lunch, as it may be their only chance to eat until after the ceremony. • Distribute your schedule to one another and the bridal party. Once the wedding day schedule has been devised, couples should share it with each other and their wedding parties. Grooms’ wedding day to-do lists might not be as extensive as brides’, but grooms should still be kept in the loop re- garding the schedule so they can help if any- one has questions or if something goes awry. Sharing the schedule with the wedding party decreases the chances of someone being late or missing an appointment.
