If they are from Out of Town i would let them come.  If they live a few minutes from the venue then there is no reason for them to be there early.  They probably don’t want to be there early either.  Maybe some of the guys can carpool over and their wives can come over later so there’s not so many people/cars there.

I have the exact same setup for getting ready. I hadn’t thought about this. I guess I will leave it up to the spouses. If they want to get ready and come early to watch us do pictures, that is fine or if they would rather show up with the other guests do, that is okay too. I’m fairly close with the significant others so I wouldn’t mind them being there early to have a glass of champagne with me!!

I was in a wedding where this was the case a few years ago, and my Fiance was in one this summer. The spouses just stayed at the hotel and got ready there and then took the shuttle with the regular guests. It was completely fine, and people can be separated for a few hours.

I would not have so many people around when you’re getting ready.  It gets confusing and there’s a lot going on – you just want your girls and your mom there.  Couples can be separated for a few hours to get ready on their own.  In my wedding, couples split up and had no problem meeting up when the ceremony happened.
