My mom seems to believe that everyone gets ready at the church and she means the whole “shebang” from hair/make-up to simply putting on the dress. I suggested maybe getting a hotel room near by and doing it there since my parents house is kind of small and I don’t think the getting-ready pictures would come out so well if we did it at home (is this snobby of me??). I think if it came down to it I would still rather get ready anywhere BUT the church haha. Where are you ladies getting ready?

I”ll do hair/makeup before I get to my venue (not a church), and just put the dress on there.

Hm, I know my cousin did get ready at the church, but it’s my uncle’s church and she only had 3 bridesmaids. My FSIL had us get ready at the FILs’ house, since it was bigger and only 15 minutes from the church. I’ve also heard of hotel rooms.
I’m not sure what we’re doing yet as we’re not getting married in a church and won’t have access to our venue beforehand. I wouldn’t mind doing it in our apartment, but it’s on the small side.

Our church doesn’t have a room for us to get ready in. We’re supposed to show up ready. I’ve got a suite reserved at a hotel for me and the girls to get ready. The boys will probably take over the house.

I am getting ready at a hotel near the ceremony/reception site. I am walking to my hair/make-up appt (its across the street from the hotel) and putting my dress on at the ceremony site – oly because there is some stuff I have to do @ the ceremony/reception site beforehand.

I’m getting my hair and make-up done at a salon in the morning, but all other getting-ready activities will be at the church. They’ve got a special room for me and my girls!

I’m doing it all at the church, but there’s totally the space there.

I’m getting ready at a hotel room with my BMs and we’re taking some pre-ceremony photos there and then going to the church for the ceremony. Normally I’d get ready at my mom’s place, but she lives about an hour an a half away from the ceremony venue/where I live so I just didn’t want to eat up getting ready time in traffic. She was a bit sad about it, but totally understands me and KNOWS that I am not, have never been and never will be a morning person so the longer I can sleep in the happier I’ll be.
