Wedding Day Schedule
Planning a perfect wedding day is very difficult. When should you call the hairdresser and makeup artist? When should the wedding bouquet be ready? What time should you leave for the registry office or schedule an outdoor ceremony? From my own experience, I can say that it's not easy, especially if you plan to have the registration in one part of the city, the photo session in another, and the banquet in a third.
If you want to do everything so that it's beautiful and neat, your guests are satisfied, and everything is done according to your preferences - in general, perfectly - then I will try to give you some tips, answer your questions, and those that only exist in your imagination. Therefore, come to the wedding photographer before you approve the plan of your wedding day - we will help. After all, it's your first and only time in life.
Usually, event agencies are responsible for planning weddings and offer several different options from which you can choose the optimal one. But how to choose the right option? Or you can create such a plan yourself because no one knows better than you what you need. I hope my advice will help you in this not easy task.
What schedule should you follow?
- 6:00 AM - Wake up!
- 7:30 AM - 10:30 AM - Getting ready!
- 11:00 AM - Groom's arrival!
- 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM - Registering the marriage
- 2:00 PM - Walk!
- 6:00 PM - 11:00 PM - Banquet!
Start your morning with a cup of aromatic coffee. You need to wake up and energize yourself for the whole day. Take a contrast shower, it will help you wake up. Then, meet with stylists.
Expect that hairstyle and makeup will take about 3 hours. Prepare wedding accessories the day before, so that everything is visible. If there is still time before the groom arrives, try to relax a bit. Twirl in front of the mirror, take selfies with your friends. The photographer will have time to take a mini-photo reportage of your preparations for the wedding.
The groom should leave a little earlier to avoid unforeseen circumstances, such as traffic. The bride's ransom should not be too long, 15-20 minutes should be enough. Plus, 15 minutes for a reception, which you will celebrate after a successful ransom.
You need to arrive at the Registry Office in advance (they will tell you about it when you submit your application). Note that the official ceremony (registration, filming, and waiting) can take about an hour, maybe a little longer.
After registering the marriage, it's time for a photo shoot. Of course, you will have to discuss this item with the photographer in detail beforehand, but this describes the general situation. A photo shoot doesn't have to be an outing with wedding photographers to beautiful places. It can be a city walk to places where you like to be, or, on the contrary, have never been. What would you like to do on your family's birthday? Maybe plant a tree? Fly a plane? Visit your favorite cafe (where you met), have a cup of tea/coffee/glass of champagne? There are many options!
This will take two to three hours, maybe a little longer. Also, don't forget about the guests who will be waiting for your arrival at the restaurant. Therefore, don't spend too much time on a walk photo shoot.
You can relax a little at the banquet, as your family and friends will entertain you by participating in the contests that you have come up with for them in advance.
