This post is about the “decor” of the bridal suite…
I am getting ready (hair and makeup) in a large hotel suite.. it’s not anything special, pretty much your average hotel suite at a nice hotel chain. The room is really very nice and spacious, so we will have lots of room & light, but it terms of “getting ready” pictures of me in my dress, it’s nothing out of the ordinary.
I also have the option of going to a bridal suite in an old manor, it’s on the grounds of my reception site, about 15 minutes from the hotel. It’s really pretty, old fashioned, and would look nicer in professional pics. But it costs $300 to rent for 2 hours, and I’m not sure if it’s worth the hassle of changing venues between our hair/makeup & me putting my dress on.
Basically I would be going from hotel to manor house at the reception site, then over to the church (near the hotel), then back to the reception site.
What do you think I should do? Are bridal getting-ready pics really worth getting done in a beautiful room, or should I stick with the hotel room to save time and money?
