We rented a house 5 minutes from our venue. My bridesmaids and I got ready at the house we rented and DH and the groomsmen used his Dad’s rental house.

hillputaringonit :  I totally get it! In figuring this all out myself, I already have 2 wedding regrets –

1) I couldn’t get my photographer for the whole damn day (we have him 8 hours, which is also how long I booked the venue for).

2) I didn’t book more time at the venue to match that lol. We have additional outdoor hours for setting up and whatnot, but will be getting hair and makeup done at hotel during that time!

Venue…which was also our hotel because it is a BnB.

My maids and I did hair and makeup at my mom’s house that morning and got dressed at the church.

I will be getting hair and makeup done at the venue. There are separate rooms available at the venue for the bridal and groom parties to get ready in.

I got ready in the bridal suite in the hotel we stayed the night before the wedding and the wedding night. I had the same person doing my hair and MU. My friend came and did my daughters hair. It was about 10 mins from the ceremony site.

hillputaringonit :  I’m declining pro photos like that and I won’t regret it. It depends on your personality, I guess. Some brides are more of a ham than me, but I already don’t like photos on a good day. I’m going to be a stressed-out mess, so I’m not going to add to it by feeling like I have to be “on” while I’m getting ready. A lot of the photos I’ve seen look really contrived, anyway.

If someone wants to whip out their phone and take pics, be my guest. I’ll probably take some selfies. That’s it for me.
