  • poll: Is your venue charging you for "getting ready" time?

    Yes, but I'm going to get ready somewhere else

    Yes, and I am paying it!

    Nope. There is a room for the bride/bridesmaids, but I don’t think you can actually get ready there.  We’ll be getting ready at whatever hotel we end up choosing.

    We purposely booked our venue for 2 days so we wouldn’t have to stress.  We’re setting up the day before, then getting ready at the venue on the day of the wedding.

    Nope. We were outdoors so no facilities.  I got ready at the salon and dressed at a nearby relatives and dh had had a hotel room with the boys.

    My venue had a locker room/restroom that wasn’t really intended for getting ready, but I did anyway!

    My venue does have a space where we could get ready. Meaning its a space other than the reception space and its often used for private tastings and the ketubah signing, but we aren’t allowed to get ready there.

    We will be getting ready at a hotel. Is there a hotel closer to the venue where you could get ready? That way it eliminates the traffic issue?

    I can put my dress on there, but that’s it- no doing hair/makeup at the venue. But it’s a museum, so it makes sense- they don’t want hair spray, etc. all over the place.
