    Will your photographer take pictures there of you getting ready? If not, I wouldn’t worry about it. Just bring a light mirror for putting on makeup and don’t worry about it.

    If you photographer is taken get ready pics, I would email him/her and explain the situation. A good photographer should have some kind of lighting the make up for the lack of good lighting in the room.

    I have a similar situation. I love everything about our venue except the small little roomw e have to get readin that only has one chair.  However, like you said, it seems like a waste to pya for a hotel for 1 hour. I think for us, we will all be having our hair and makeup done so all that will take place is changing. I haven’t worked out all the logistics yet, but maybe the girls can take turns if it is just a matter of slipping on their dress and shoes?

    why not get the hotel room, and spend the night there w/ your groom after the wedding?

    I don’t see the point of getting another room just for better lighting.  Some of the bridesmaids will come with hair and make-up already done.  And you yourself are getting yours done elsewhere.  If your photographer thinks the lighting is to bad then they will bring in extra lighting to make it work.  Talk to them first. They may have already done a few weddings at the venue and know what works best. 

    You also need to keep in mind that if you get in your dress at a hotel then you have to ride in a car from there to the ceremony… hence a wrinkled dress! Plus then you’d have to try hiding from guests and groom getting out of the car and to the waiting area.

    I would rather go to the venue and get my dress on there right at the last possible minute.  Remember that you will be laced up and that car ride is just that many more minutes laced up and hot!  (At least in HOuston you’d be Hot)

    If it’s just the lighting then I say stay with what they have.  But we wanted more time to get ready and have our hair done, make up etc. Plus more space.  So I just got a big suite for my FI and I the night of the wedding and we’ll check in in the morning/afternoon and start getting ready there!

    will they let you check in earlier? they might be willing to give you the room earlier and charge you for half a day extra. i’m not sure if that makes a difference. if you want the background / lighting to be nice, that might be the alternative. or maybe your photographer can take close ups / fuzz out the background?
