If they are all local and in charge of doing their own hair and makeup (or that’s being done at another location) I think just asking them to show up dressed and ready 30 min prior is fine.

I have the same situation… weddings at 5… and the bridal suite is TINY..however i will be renting a hotel room the night before for me and my Maid/Matron of Honor ( shes an OOTer) and any other bridesmaids that want to stay- an we will get ready there to make it easier.

@ambereyez:  A hotel isn’t in the budget for us but we have the same issue. (except our venue is an hour away) lol. I don’t even have a bridal suite so I’m just getting dressed in the bathroom and I think they will be doing the same… hahaha

@ambereyez:  If they live locally why can’t they get dressed at their own houses? Thats what I did for the last wedding I was in. (It was a small and semiformal wedding.)

if all the bms are local, can everyone get ready at one of the bm’s house?  or if it’s in the budget, get a hotel room for everyone (including you) to get ready.  i think it provides time for everyone to bond.

we’re getting married at a country club so the dressing area is the women’s locker room.  i’m getting a large suite for the entire time we’re in vegas and having the makeup artist/hair stylist come do our hair and makeup in the room.

It’s fine to ask them to get dressed at home and meet up at the venue dressed and ready to go.

A hotel room for the bridesmaids to get dressed in – especially when the wedding is elsewhere and the bride will be getting ready elsewhere – is a totally unnecessary expense.  I can’t imagine the bridesmaids would want to pack up their dresses and shoes, drive to a hotel, get dressed, and then drive to your venue.  Lots of wasted motion, IMO.
