What about a tent of some sort? They have the white canvas-y gazebo tents with sides that you and your girls could hide in (like 10×10). You could decorate the outside with some flowers and streamers. Plus, when you and your husband walk back up the aisle, you 2 could duck in there for a few minutes alone before greeting everybody.

I’m having the same problem.  The best idea I have so far is to do a little 10×10 tent with sides.  Plus, it will be nice to have some shade and a sort of headquarters where we can leave our stuff. We’ll probably rent one from the same place we are renting our chairs.  But yeah, I wish I just had a little building…

I’m having the same problem, but the park that we are at has a japanese tea house. So I think we’ll utilize this. Plus its where the bathroom is too so I still need some sort of screen to mask the entrance. ๐Ÿ™‚

What about a horse drawn carriage arriving at the end of the aisle with you in it?  Or even have the limo drop you off on the far side of the car and the bridesmaids on the aisle side.  They could begin the procession, and as the last bridesmaid walks the limo could pull away revealing you!

You might check eBay for tents.  I found this one, which is 10′ x 30′, for $135.  That would definitely be big enough for your whole bp.  Or this 10′ x 10′ one is $59.99.

I agree, a small white tent with a couple chairs and couches & a BIG mirror.  Make it comfy, but it will be private.  You can open up the back, that doesn’t face the ceremony too if its too warm and you need a breeze.

My venue is outside and the owners have a bridal tent they set up! I am going to my reception place to get ready because dressing in a tent outside doesn’t sound so lovely to me and they have a bridal suite for me at the reception place. How I am going to get from the car to the tent without someone seeing I have no idea. lol
