  • Wedding: June 2014

We shared a room to get ready in, but he got ready first. When he was done he went out to do photos and I got ready with my MOH and best friend (didn’t have a bridal party besides MOH). It was too expensive for us to get another room and the check in and check out times were not working out for us, since check in was 3 pm! Our wedding was at 5:30. We were lucky to have an early check in, but none of the other guests were allowed to check in that early so it kinda sucked. Our wedding was at an Inn that’s kind of like a resort, by the way.

We didn’t have a traditional rehearsal dinner. We just had a pre-wedding get together for most of our guests.

We’re getting ready in the hotel as well. We have a bunch of the wedding party staying over too. I figured that I would get ready in our room and my FI would get ready in his best mans room. We have a larger wedding party (5 on each side) most of which will be getting rooms the night before as well, so we’ll just use the rooms.

For our rehearsal dinner, it’s going to be VERY informal. We’re going to the church, then to the hall to decorate and we’ll order in pizza. We’ll have the bridal party and heir spouses, as well as any immediate family that is not in the wedding. Plus, a close friend or two who live in the area who won’t mind helping us decorate.

XmasBride2014:  You can get ready in the bridal suite. That’s what it’s there for. If it gets “messed up,” you can call the house keeping to have them come straighten up. That’s what they are there for.

Your man can get ready in the best man’s room (if the best man is okay with that). If not, prehaps your future in-laws are okay with their son getting ready in their room. Especially since there’s a chance his mother will have to get her hair and make up done, which will probably be in the bridal suite.

XmasBride2014:  I am having a hotel reception and rented a room the night before so I can get ready in it that day. Ours are 2 room suites so girls can get ready in bedroom guys can get ready in the living room. 

For rehearsal dinner we are having bridal party and their dates, readers and their spouses, parents, and grandparents.

XmasBride2014:  In terms of the rehersal lunch, the ones I’ve been to are usually the parents and grandparents of the couple. Siblings of the couple and their SOs/dates. The wedding Party and their SOs/dates. Also any one else involved, ie: readers, if a friend is marrying you, etc.

Sometims, I’ve seen aunts and uncles and cousins, but it depends on your family and how close everyone is.
