I’m curious to see where you ladies plan on getting ready for your wedding day. My Fiance and I are not sure of what we are doing yet. The plan will likely be to use a Bridesmaid or Best Man or GM’s house and my FIL’s home (offered by them). I can’t seem to justify getting a hotel for myself and the ladies. It is just one extra cost that we don’t need to spend.
So what did you ladies decide to do? And will those of you who live together be sleeping seperately the night before to build up the joy of seeing them at the ceremony?

I will be getting ready at the church actually. They have a bridal suite there that the Bridesmaid or Best Man, Flower Girl, Mothers, and I will be able to use. Planning on my hairdresser (along with 2 helpers) coming to the church and doing our hair there, and not sure about what we’re doing with make-up yet. But yea all at the church

My fiance is going to sleep in the hotel (where we are spending our wedding night) the night before the wedding. He will go straight from the rehearsal dinner.
I, myself, am going to sleep at our house, which we already own/live in together. The next morning, the bridesmaids, my Mom, and my Fiance’s Mom are all coming over… hair and makeup people are coming TO my house where we will eat, listen to corny music, and drink mimosas while we get ready 🙂 Very excited about it.

I went with my mom and my BMs to the salon to have our hair and makeup done and then we all got dressed at my parents house. It was nice being somewhere familiar so I could be comfortable before the wedding.

@Lynz407: Ooh that sounds like fun!
@MrsMcGyro: That sounds lovely! I never thought about how nice and relaxing that would be. I wish my family lived closer to our venue.

I’m having the hair and makeup stylists come to my home but I will actually put my dress on in the hotel suite that Fiance and I will be staying at on our wedding night. I’m hoping to get some neat photos and then we’ll travel to the ceremony site (5 mins away) to start photos before the wedding.
Fiance and my son will be getting ready at our home and meeting us at the ceremony site.

- Wedding: October 2011 - Bed & Breakfast
We are both getting ready at the B&B where the ceremony and reception are taking place. We have the entire place to ourselves, so I chose my favorite suite to get ready in and Mr. LK chose his.

I slept at a hotel the night before (out-of-state wedding from our current residence).
I did hair and make-up at the salon that morning.
I got my dress, shoes, jewelery, etc on in the bridal room at the church.

My house, actually really it is my parents house. But its really pretty and spacious. So I think it will make for some really great pictures. And the boys are getting ready and Chad’s parent’s house.

We’ll likely get our hair done at the salon, but go to the church to get ready and do our makeup, etc. Then we’re there and ready to go for photos (it’s about 20 miles away from the hotel/reception venue) and we’re not getting dirty from the trip.

We’re getting married in the grounds of a castle and I’m getting ready in the bridal suite that they have (where we’re also staying that night) complete with antique four-poster bed and footed bath.

We are getting married at a hotel. I will be staying there overnight after the rehearsal dinner, and then our venue provides a getting ready room for the day of. Fiance and his boys will get ready in the room I stay in the night before.

Right now I’m planning on getting ready at the hotel, but our timeline hasn’t been finalized yet so that could change. The hotel can’t tell me if they’ll be able to provide an early check in, and if they can’t than we might have a timing issue!

Our wedding was a five minute walk from my parents’ house, and DH’s family rented a house for the weekend around the corner (they live far away). It was awesome, because Darling Husband slept with me at my parents’ place the night before, and then we had the rehearsal that morning (scheduling bummer but it ended up being a really fun start to the day). Then he went to his parents’ house, the girls came to my place, and we were all nearby. His brother actually came over a couple times to get things/drop them off, and I was so glad it was so close.
It was also really nice getting ready in a familiar cozy place. People kept talking about how calm I was, and I think that was why.
