How early do you need to wake up on your wedding day? Do you have a hair and makeup team coming at the crack of dawn? Or have you planned things to give you some time to sleep in?

Share your 'rise and shine' time and your wedding ceremony start time! ⏰

    I haven't gotten this far in planning, but my wedding is at 2. I have a MUA coming to do me and my BM's makeup ( 5 of us total ). She said an hour for me and 45ish minutes for each girl, though my daughter is 11 and doesn't need a full face. That's 4ish hours right there......

    OMG IM GONNA HAVE TO BE UP AT LIKE 6 😭😭😭

    Who am I kidding, I probably won't sleep much the night before anyway. Too excited, lol.

    (If I can sleep) I plan to get up when I usually do for work/normal day, which is around 7:30 if not before. I never get to sleep in so I know my body will at least wake me up then, if not sooner from nerves. We plan to do a first look around 2pm, and the bridal party doesn't need to be 100% ready until 3 for pictures, our ceremony is at 4:30.

    I plan to get to the church to get ready around 8/9, our hairstylist will give us an estimate closer to time, and our DOC will put together a timeline for the day of that we will follow and coordinate with the photographer and HMUA.

    I naturally get up at 720am every day (722 on the dot every day to be exact). So I imagine I will get up then, if I’m not up earlier out of excitement! Hair and makeup start at 9am

    I wasn't planning on waking up until at least 8am for our 3pm ceremony but my HMUA called and said she needed to start at 7am. Smiley sad So I guess 7am.

    FYI I totally whined on the phone, "But, but, what about eating breakfast?!?!" haha! Food first!

    We will be getting to the venue at 10am, so wake up time will probably be 8 so I can eat and we can ensure everything is in the car before we drive the ~30mins to the venue. I'm hoping to have my bridesmaids stay with me at my parents house the night before so we can all go together.

    I know I won't sleep at all the night before. I'm going to be so excited. Smiley smile I'm getting up at 5:00am at the latest. We are having a 10:30a ceremony. Hair and makeup will arrive at 5:30a.

    Ceremony starts at 7 and I only have a MOH, so definitely isn't going to be the crack of dawn. Fiance and I are planning to have breakfast together that morning before going our separate ways.

    I don't imagine I'll get much sleep. My first appointment, for my hair, is at 10, so I will probably get out of bed by 8.

    My wedding was at 2 and I woke up at 8 and got to the church at 10. One of my bridesmaids did my hair and makeup and we both helped with everyone else's. Somehow even though we didn't have much to do I was still dressless when my mother in law came in to check on us at 1:00 haha

    Ceremony starts at 5 pm but we're leaving the hotel at 4. HMU is coming at 9 am. I am putting myself to bed early the night before because I'm scared of even bigger bags under my eyes! I am planning to wake up before 6 so I can go for a long walk by myself to calm down and relax and breathe. Then shower, dry my hair and eat something! It will make for a long day but I'm hoping the walk and the adrenaline carry me through Smiley laugh Smiley heart 15 days left!
