9am MakeUp

Hey ladies, I am having my make up done at 9am for a 2:30 wedding.


Does this sound right? Its just me having make up.

Im just worried it will wear off!

    Hmm as its just you that does sound quite early, How long (if any) is the journey to the ceremony? Also are you having your hair done as well? if so when is this booked for?

    Hmm, that does sound early, I'm getting married at 2pm and the MUA isn't coming till 10 but that's to do three of us and fit around hair..  does she have another wedding that day?

    The venue is only round the corner, prob no more than a 5 minute drive. Hairdresser is coming at 10:30 but i'll be the 3rd out of 4 to be done.

    I dont mind i just dont want it wearing off!

    I would just check with your MUA if there is a reason she’s doing it so early? If there is no particular reason then definitely ask for it to be pushed back. Apparently wedding makeup is meant to last all day but if I had it done that early I’d be so conscious of it the rest of the morning and it would make it harder to eat and drink.

    It sounds a bit early. I'm getting married at 2 and will be having my make up done around 11-12  I think.

    Sounds slightly early, our ceremony is 2.30 and makeup lady is coming for 10 and thats to do 4 of us. It should last, as already mentioned, I think  i would be conscious eating and drinking.xx

    I’m having my make up done at 9:30 but I am getting married at 12:00pm! I think it’s early. I’d ask them to push it back!
