Hi, how long roughly does hair and makeup take for the bride? Nothing too fancy just pretty simple make up and an up do. My ceremony is at 10.30am so I'm wondering how little sleep I'll get!

My ceremony was at 12:30. I had 3 bridesmaids getting their hair and makeup done and me. We started at 8:30 for everyone to be ready for 11:30-11:45 at the latest.

I got married at 4 and had to be out of the house by 3 and I had hair and make up over at 11, got started at 11:30 and finished myself, and 2 bridesmaids at roughly 2:15... I had hair pinned and light makeup done and bridesmaids had curls and more if a glamour look... Xx

45 mins hair 45 mins up do . That’s best case scenario .

UKbride Member 28 Feb 2020

Best for both, 1 and half hours...but of you do a trail maybe knock 20mins off that x

My wedding is 11:30am and my hair is being started at 6:45am 😱😂 I do have 3 bridesmaids having their hair done too though, so I would imagine between 2 and 3 hours for both depending on what you’re having done 🙂

I'm having me and my 3 bridesmaids, and 2 flower girls having hair and make up done. I get married at 1, my make up is arriving at 6.30am and my hair at 9.30am. I told mine who wanted what and what time I get married and they told me times.

I got married at 1300 and the hair and make up started at 0730 for me and 3 bridesmaid and 2 flower girls x

2 hours for hair and makeup for me. My hair is heavy so not the easiest.

UKbride Member 28 Feb 2020

Allow 1 hour per person

UKbride Member 28 Feb 2020

My wedding was at 3 and we had to be ready for 2pm for the cars coming for us. Hair and make-up started at 8.30 and that was me, 4 bridesmaids and a flower girl. Think we were all done by 1ish x

Our ladys came at 8 for a 12 ceremony there was 2 of them 1 hair and 1 make up and we were done in plenty of time x

UKbride Member 29 Feb 2020

I got married at 11, started getting ready at 7:30am but maybe best to ask with the person who's doing it? Shouldn't take too long, that's what you gave trials for xxx

UKbride Member 29 Feb 2020

You could ask your stylist to do a dry run to know roughly how long it would take

UKbride Member 29 Feb 2020

I did mine myself, it took me 15 mins lol. I like understated make up, a bit of light foundation, shimmer eyeshadow, and mascara. My hair was bumped at the front, then I had a comb in curly hair piece, really easy, but looked like I'd had alot of work done on it lol. I did my own nails with an iridescent gel polish and a uv lamp xxx
