Every bride always wants a timeline from me after I get off the floor from laughter I tell them we can make a timeline, but nothing ever goes as planned. EVER. Someone is always late, missing, retrieving missing shoes, it’s always something..
But just so you can get an idea of how my day goes. here is an imaginary timeline..
Of course we will start at 10a, because my brides get married around 4p so there’s plenty of daylight for group photos afterwards, right? Dare to dream, but hey, it’s my imaginary timeline….
10a- I meet brides and bridesmaids in the hotel room/salon where they are getting ready.
11a- go to bar, eat lunch/cocktails with grooms/ groomsmen.
1230p – Go back to girls and stay with them.
2p sneak away and grab some shots of groom getting ready..
230p back with girls / bride gets her dress on/finishing touches
This would be a great time if we do a First Look! In my world the bride and groom always see each other before!!!
ESPECIALLY IF THEY ARE GETTING MARRIED IN THE EVENING.
3p- in car on way to wedding space.
Some advice I love to give my couples. Try to get a good night’s sleep the day before, I know it’s hard tying up loose ends and partying with everyone, but if you can avoid it, there is nothing worse than being green, hungover with bags under your eyes for you wedding day.
Eat protein that day, I see so much bread and fruit in hotel rooms, what the H? Have some turkey sandwiches!!!
And it’s really cute if bridesmaids have matching robes, tshirts or shirt, as cornball as it sounds, if it’s your style, do it!!
When planning your wedding, ask your event planner to have a cooler READY and snacks when the group is hiding out, waiting to be introduced or during photos.. It’s like an afterthought with waiters asking what you want and bringing cocktails later, or groomsmen running off for a beer run duh, have it ready!!
When planning your wedding, always consider daylight savings time!!!
