it all depends on where the wedidng will be.  You want to be close by so it’s a long drive to the venue.

Where are you getting marrier?

LA is really, really big. Is there any particular area/neighborhood that you would prefer, like somewhere close to the venue.  Providing a rough price range helps too.  I know of some kickass hotels in LA but I’m not sure if you want to hear about the $700/night one or the $90/night one.

As for staying on different floors— that is entirely up to you. Once you’re in separate rooms it really doesn’t matter much if one is on the 8th floor and one is on the 10th.

Room size— if there will be other ladies getting ready with you, then you should have a suite. The extra space really helps.  Men don’t seem to need quite as much space but it wouldn’t hurt for both of you to get a suite if you can afford it.

When we got married (in a hotel in Baltimore), the bridal suite (which no one slept in, and later during the reception became the babysitting room) was next door to our personal room, which is where the men got ready.We had no problems because I had a specific timeline which allowed 15 minutes transfers so that we had no crossing in the hallways since we didn’t want to see each other first.

Really, you can get ready ANYwhere, but what size you have and what you are looking for is really personal preference. Most brides don’t choose a hotel room just to get ready in, usually your venue will have a bridal suite, or your wedding hotel will have a bridal suite. If your venue is not a hotel, where are you arranging your room block for your out of town guests? They can usually work in a discount for a grand suite.

But usually you just want a big room, not a standard room, and it’s your wedding, so you might want to splurge.

How many ladies need to get ready? How many hair and make up people will you have to get those girls ready? How many photographers will be photographing/videotaping the getting ready aspect? If you’re jewish, will your rabbi be doing your ketubah signing in the room? Will everyone be coming at once to get ready or will it be staggared? If together, you’ll probably want a room that has sofas and chairs in addition to the bed and desk chair. What’s your budget? Is this a room only being used for getting ready, like you’ll pay for it by the hour? Los Angeles is gigantic and traffic-laden, are you sure you want random recommendations that could be clear across town and will surely make you late to your own wedding, or do you have a spcific part of town you are interested in?

Most national hotel brands will have a business suite or “bridal suite” in which you two can sleep in throughout the weekend, but will have the bedroom be a different room or otherwise separated by a wall from a sitting room area.

This question is quite honestly too vague to give any kind of answer. But hopefully we’ve given you something (or many somethings) to think about.


Good luck!
