I’m getting ready by myself as well. It’s casual, I think that makes a difference. Just because everyone on TV and movies gets ready together, doesn’t mean you have to.

I got ready on my own.  I only had one Bridesmaid or Best Man but I was the only one getting my hair and makeup done so I went there alone.

if that’s what you feel comfortable doing it might relax you to get ready alone.  just make sure you have your friends on speed dial incase you need some moral support!! 🙂

No way – I’m way to exited to get ready on my own I’m staying at home with my mum – Simon’s staying at his house with his mates, my sister (MOH) is staying over with me and Mum and my friend and bridesmaid is coming over with her 2 year old daughter first thing and we’re all having our massive breakfast together and then having our hair and makeup done together and getting all decked out. (not the two year old obv  – she’s just wearing a pretty pink dress and sitting with her dad) It’s four of us getting ready (Mum as well) with plenty of bucks fizz flowing.

i think i needed people there to keep my mind off things and to keep me sane. plus, if anything went wrong, or it was time for lunch, there was always someone to help.

I couldnt get ready alone because I would be way too nervous! And I imagine it as a special time with my girlfriends and my mom that cant be replicated by anything else. But if you are comfortable with it then you should do what you want!

I’m staying in my own apartment with just Fiance, and I’m going to get up and probably spend the morning with him.  I’ll go get my hair done with the other ladies at some point, but I’m doing my own make up and don’t really envision this whole thing were everyone is around “helping” me- that would just stress me out!  I didn’t book the photographer for any getting ready shots, and I definitely don’t want five or six women all putting my dress on me.  Maybe one person to zip me up after I put it on myself, without an audience lol.

I stayed alone at our house the night before and morning of the wedding.  It was really nice, and I credit that for being so calm and cool the day of the wedding. 

I met our wedding party and family at the venue at noon that day to set up the reception area, then we hung out and relaxed with a sandwich tray until it was time to get ready.  Just before we got ready I took a long walk alone, and just relaxed and enjoyed the day. 

My Maid/Matron of Honor has kids, but I’m close with her family, so they were at the wedding too as guests- which really helped since they took her kids during the getting ready part and the ceremony.  It was fun to have her kids running around the reception area while we were dressing it up, they were pretty helpful too!   

ETA- My SIL was worried that I was staying alone, but my Mother-In-Law understood and explained it to everyone else who didn’t get it that I wanted some “me time” before the wedding.
