My mom and my BMs got ready with me, and the Flower Girl came over to play with us as well. It was fun having everyone there!

DH and all the guys got ready at our apartment.

@Selcier:  How come your mom and sister can’t get ready with you? Do you have someone helping you lace or zip up your dress?

My maids and MIl got ready with me and DH and the guys (including our dads) got ready with him (we had areas in the church to get ready).

I couldn’t imagine getting ready alone 🙁

 

I’ll have Mum, my sister, my best friend, her husband and newborn baby (out of necessity to the baby), then my Dad will come along just before the limo.

@Selcier:  My BMs, flower girl and my aunt. My mom was there too but not at all helpful as I posted in another thread. The morning “crew” if you will.

I got ready alone and it was great, but I’m an introvert who loves quiet “me” time in general. I intentionally didn’t tell anyone where I was getting ready besides FI nor did I bring it up in conversation. I didn’t have a BP so there was no need really for people to get ready with me. I just had our photographer and my hair/makeup person. I practice getting into my dress before so it was relatively easy. I just had my MUA zip me up that last few inches. I was really stressed that morning with the traffic and running around so it was nice to just have a couple hours of relative peace and quiet with people that are there to support you, know the industry, and not cause drama. I’m really happy I chose to go this route rather than having my loud and dramatic ILs there with my quiet, introverted family. LOL

@Selcier:  My mom helped me at the start and then some friends of the family helped get me into my dress while my mom got ready.  This time I am getting ready with my mom and little sister.

A friend of mine without a wedding party just got married, so she asked 3 of her girlfriends if they would get ready with her.

It was me, my Mom and my MOH and the photographer…who was also a really old family friend…I think sometimes less is best when Brides are getting ready, there’s a moment when the gravity of the committment you’re about to make comes crashing down on you, and having a entourage of rowdy BM’s and FG’s and anyone else you can fit in the room makes what should be a retrospective and private moment into a three ring circus.

i got ready with my dh.  unusual i know but i wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.

we were staying in a hotel suite and we shared a bottle of champagne and snacks while we took our time getting ready.  it was wonderful.  so relaxing.  i didn’t have to worry about walking around naked or anything.

i love that he was the one who zipped me up.
