Would you have a car with you if you stayed at the hotel? If not, how will you and the bride eventually get to the same place? Will she have to go out of the way to get you? Is the wedding ceremony at the hotel? Will you not see her until she arrives for the ceremony?

I think you should stay at the house (if she wants you there) and enjoy all the chaos as just part of the insanity of weddings. It’ll all make a really great story later I’m sure.

I just couldn’t dream of being a bridesmaid and not being there to help her put the dress on.

However if you do have a car – I don’t see too much harm in getting a good night’s sleep, getting up real early to get yourself ready then heading over to the house to get the bride ready and be there for her.

Oh – I didn’t see the option about your husband. Yea – that sounds like it could work. Get up as early as possible 🙂

anonybee0810:  In this situation I would stay with her. Especially since you said she’s really nervous. I’m sure she’d appreciate your support.

It does suck with hair and make up…. who’s doing hers? Can they do your as well? Or maybe there is another friend or family member who can do your hair for you. While it sucks not having it done professionally, it’s more important to be there for your friend.

anonybee0810:  I’d stay with her. My favorite part of my wedding was 3 of my best friends spending the night with me at my cabin while my fiancé was with his friends the night before our weddinb. You’ll be glad you did 🙂

My gut says stay with her! I could be projecting here, but she sounds like she’s a conscientious person and probably doesn’t want to inconvenience anyone, but if she’s nervous, she could really use your support and presence. (If she’s nervous now, she’ll have lots of nerves the night before too!) If you’re willing to get up at 5am to get over there early enough, could you get up at 5am at her place and get moving before everyone else?
