What about getting ready outfits for Bridesmaids?

Lingerie or pajamas? Here you can really have your fun. Some of our favorite options for what to wear while getting ready for a wedding include nightgowns in silk or chiffon fabric or tanks with silk shorts that can be worn over and over again after the wedding day. You could personalize them with each bridesmaid name or with some fun phrases.

Surely you will need to deliver these items to the girls the night before the wedding and in the morning they will be ready to start getting ready.

Getting ready

Try to establish a timeline for both makeup and hairstyle.
Make up & Hair: the bride takes about 90-120 minutes. The bridesmaids, mother and mother-in-law of the bride 1h-1h:30 depending on the hairstyle or hair length

Getting ready

How early should the bride be ready?

Getting ready photos provide an opportunity to capture all of the special details that make up your wedding style. At least an hour before the ceremony starts, the bride should be ready to take the first pictures. The final touches will be perfect for more flattering photos.

Who pays for the bridesmaids hair and makeup?

This is quite a dilemma! Usually, the bride pays for hair and makeup services as a gift to all her bridesmaids. Sometimes, however, the bride provides a make up artist and a hairdresser for her bridesmaids and other ladies who need these services. The bride will have decided in advance the fee for each service and each one will pay for them.

What are the 5 things a bride needs?

Although you may or may not be a superstitious bride, or whether or not you care about your grandmother’s traditions, you absolutely should not have and wear the following on your wedding day today:

The traditional wedding rhyme goes: Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a sixpence in your shoe. It describes the four (technically five) objects a bride should have with her on her wedding day for good luck, and brides have been following this custom for centuries.

Which Getting Ready Accessories should you have?

The smallest details are sometimes the ones that make a photo really important! So don’t forget the following items to enhance your personal morning photo shoot.

Not all details are important. Much is about the value you assign them. Differentiate the details that are worth remembering and photographing as something that is especially important to you or that you took extra time to choose. For example, maybe you have a pin of your grandmother’s on your bouquet or you have the shoes of your dreams and you want to remember how beautiful they were before you ran on the grass.

There are a wide variety of details you can get caught, here’s a fairly complete list to give you some ideas:

Wedding dress (on a pretty hanger, not a plastic one, please!).
Invitation Suite
Rings (Make sure they’re all in the same place!)
Special Ring Boxes
Voting books
Family heirlooms
