W E D D I N G PHOTOGRAPHY
START EARLY - (Don't say I didn't warn you...)
Work backwards from 45 minutes before your ceremony time - the time that you should be DONE and ready, sitting waiting for someone to tell you to walk down the isle or you're driving to the venue.
Make SURE that ALL of your bride's maids have baby sitters, they have the day off, their dress is AT YOUR VENUE the night before, they have their shoes, their makeup and hair figured out and that they are in a GREAT mood and ready to help you and smile all day.
On wedding day, buy everyone breakfast either AT the venue or a place close by. Everyone should be there and the day will begin happily. If your ceremony is at 1 p.m. and you have five bride's maids you should arrive at the place you are going to get ready 4-5 hours before that time. In this case 8:30ish a.m.
Get settled and start the process. Hair and makeup for moms, flower girls, grandma etc. Then hair and makeup for bride's maids, then for you.
8:30 Flower girls hair and makeup | in the mean time, CALL ALL OF YOUR VENDORS if you haven't done so the day before. "I just want to remind you my wedding is TODAY at 1 at this church with reception at 6 at this venue - MAKING SURE YOU WILL BE THERE!"
9:00 Mom's hair and makeup
9:30 Bride's maids hair and makeup (30 minutes per girl = 2.5 hours) If there are two hair and makeup artists, this time would get cut in half - there usually are.
10:45 Bride's makeup and hair. At the same time bride's maids get dressed. Photographer should arrive around 11:15 to take final touches of your hair and makeup.
11:15ish Jewelry, accessories, veil, garter - heavy photography during all that.
11:30 Bride photo session followed by group photos with moms and bride's maids
Noon - ALL SET TO GO. Gather important items from list: Cell phone charger, guest book, comfortable shoes, vows, rosary, bouquets, wedding party gifts if any, wedding license, unity candle, hotel reservations, room key, car keys, money, vendor phone numbers.
If you have an awesome photographer, he / she should take over the schedule and the time line from here on out. If not - you should have a person you know with a timeline ready to follow it.
12:30 AT THE LATEST you should be at the venue just sitting there waiting, thinking, planning and calming yourself down.
1:00 ceremony - hopefully you had a rehearsal and this will go fine. Venue planners usually are very good with this.
1:30 (or so) Receiving line. If it is outside, a receiving line can be great for pictures
Remember churches and venues want to get things going so you will have about 45 minutes to do family and formal photos there before heading to a second location.
1:45 Family photos at venue - DO NOT LET ANYONE LEAVE!
2:05 Wedding party photos at venue
2:20 Bride and groom photos at venue
2:40 Done with photos part 1

5:00 Reception begins - introductions
IF YOU ARE DOING "LA MARCHA" TRY ENTERING YOUR WEDDING DOING LA MARCHA! IT IS SO FUN AND GETS EVERYONE IN WEDDING MODE. CHAIRS ARE PUSHED IN AND YOUR GUESTS WILL LOVE IT - IT'S ALSO OUT OF THE WAY.
6:15 Toasts - pass the microphone around - people love to talk nicely about you! Unless you are mean - then don't...
