Ok, so if your your photographer needs 3 minutes per photo and the hotel is 18 minutes away from the ceremony venue, which is 7 miles from the hair salon, and the wedding starts at 4:00pm, what time should you schedule your makeup appointment for?
If questions like this one are making you reach for the whiskey, hang tight, I got you! Let’s do some timeline magic.
You tell me everything you know about your wedding. I ask you some more questions that you probably didn’t know you needed to ask.
I’ll do all the backwards calculating, google mapping, and adding buffer time as needed so your day can run smoothly and without unnecessary rushing around.
Then I’ll make you a beautiful document in your choice of format that you can reference, give to your wedding party, and share with your vendors.
$125, includes phone meeting to review details + your timeline delivered in word, excel, or google doc/sheet format
