I wanted your opinion on something. I am a very nervous person and I KNOW I will be a nervous bride. FI and I are sleeping in our own house the night before the wedding. He was then suppose to drive me 25 minutes to my parents house, then drive 30 minutes to his parents house (kind of like a triangle), get ready at his parents house and then we were going to meet at the ceremony site for pics and the ceremony. Ceremony site is 30 minutes from the both of us.
My parents have a larger home, and the top floor and bottom floor are perfectly split into 2. You would never need to interact with the other floor for any reason. I wanted the girls to get ready upstairs and the boys downstairs and then take photos in the backyard (first look). And then everyone is in one place and we can rent a bus or something to move us to the ceremony and then reception.
What do you Bees think of this?

I think it would be a great idea to both get ready at your parents’ house! The only thing I would consider is if he really wants to get ready in his parents’ house (I originally wanted to get ready in my mom’s house as a “nostalgic/moving to a different stage of my life” type thing, now I’m not sure but I could see other people having the same idea). Talk to your FI and see what he thinks!

Elysion said it right. Does he care, or do his parents care where they get ready? If they’re cool with it I don’t see a problem.

This is exactly what I will be doing (girls upstairs, boys downstairs at my parents house), and so far nobody has a problem with it. My photographer was super excited as she said it would be easier to get photos done. I think it will be easier to track down your hubby too 😉

Sounds like a great plan!

We are renting a house on an island where the reception is.We are all getting ready together, in separate quarters, then making our way together to the vineyard. It is what both my fiancee and I want to do.
