Hello again Bees! I’ve heard many ladies talk about getting ready at home and then going to the ceremony. My venue has both a bridal suite and a grooms quarters, so I was planning to get dressed there with my ladies.
What are the rest of you bees planning to do?

Most likly what will happen is I rent a suite at a hotel to have space for makeup and hair.
Fi probably going to stay at my condo and get ready with the boys there, because there will be cable and couchs and they don`t need as much time to get ready.

The morning of, I will go to my MAU’s house for makeup and meet my hairstylist back at the hotel. I will bring my dress to the bridal suite at my venue to change. I don’t want to get hot (summer in Texas, hello!), plus I want the photo opportunities that come along with my dress. 🙂

My mom’s house and I will also be sleeping there with some of my bridesmaids the night before but that is also where the ceremony is going to be held.

I’m still debating between getting dressed at the hotel and then having to ride to the venue in it, or getting dressed at the venue. The thing I don’t like is that the room at the venue is ugly and it doesn’t even have any mirrors! Doesn’t seem very much like it would be a nice place to out my wedding gown on and take pictures

My venue is huge on acrage… there is a house on the property that they rent out. We are booking that and the girls will get ready upstairs and the boys downstairs. There is no chance of either getting in the wrong area! I think it’s going to be great for us to wake up at the venue and get ready!

FMIL’s house. All the girls will get hair/make-up done there then we will get picked up in the limo. The boys need to set up the reception and ceremony area so they’ll get dressed earlier in the day.

@ArmyWife8806: Sure there are – you can “dress for your game” in the locker rooms!

You know, my venue had a bridal dressing room and grooms quarters as well, but there was a hotel in that area that I was dying to get photos at. So I splurged and rented out the conference room at the hotel (an old rustic hotel with this incredible staircase) for my girls and I to get ready at. DH and his groomsmen just got ready at the venue!

Getting ready at my Mum’s. My Fi will probably get ready at our house (or his Mum’s across the road). He is closer to the venue with a 2 minute drive. I have a 15 minute drive from Mum’s. My poor photographer..
