While we don’t consider ourselves wedding planners by any means (we’ll leave that up to the professionals) we do have a timeline and things we need to get done to make sure the entire day runs according to plan. Here at Leah Marie Photography we do our very best to give tips, advice and worksheets so that you feel good about the day and that we have all the information we need. So today we are sharing some tips we give our brides on how to ensure the day goes smoothly!
Hair & Make-up: You’re #1
Time and time again…we see our brides running HOURS late because their hair and make-up artist did them last. You might be thinking “But won’t my makeup not look as good/fresh if I’m first?” The answer is not at all! If you hired a pro then he or she will be able to use products that will last all day and night long, through tears, laughs, drinks, cake, dancing and more!
Have your hair and make-up artist do you first so that you are ready at least two hours before our start time. Then you can sit back, relax, and enjoy yourself (aka sipping on some champagne) while everyone else is getting done. If time runs out, we can always start with pictures of you while missing a bridesmaid or two.
