Generally photography coverage of the whole event is not necessary except maybe for the last 1/2 hour to one hour. Depending on your schedule the hair and makeup could be done at a salon or in your house/ hotel.
The photographer only needs to take a few pictures showing makeup and hair. This can often be re-created if it was done at a salon and you’re looking to better manage your photography.
After the excitement of the proposal, you’ll slowly start realizing the insurmountable task ahead of you. Chances are you’ve never done this before, and as you meticulously start your research, read all the magazines and articles you find, you start to get a grasp of what it takes to plan your own wedding. In addition to the phone calls and vendor research you’ll have to make, wedding planning can be complicated if you are unsure of the timeline you should follow.
While every wedding is different the general timeline to follow is pretty much the same. All the planning websites will tell you what you need to do and will detail each action needed to keep you on track, but almost none detail the actual wedding day timeline.
If you start with the timeline of your wedding day, everything will fall into place. This is often overlooked and almost never given the proper consideration it deserves even by some wedding planners.
