Does it mess up the schedule of the day if you skip pre-ceremony pictures, and have all the pictures be after the ceremony?  I’m sure the vendor coordinator doesn’t want to show up at 6 am to unlock the door for you, any more than you want to be there at 6 am.

This is a tough issue. On one hand, I can totally understand that they don’t want to be there prior to 8am. That means someone has to come in to work at 6am, possibly re-arranging their schedule and/or working overtime. I can see why they have a blanket policy of “we start at 8am”, and that it wasn’t mentioned in any of their literature (they likely did not foresee anyone needing the space that early).

However, I can also see wanting to come in early so you can get ready and get your pictures finished. If possible, maybe you could have a polite conversation with your coordinator at the venue, explaining the entire situation. It might make things tense, because she might not see the request as being reasonable (nobody likes to come into work early). But it sounds like the only way to try to get the suite so early. Your other options sound like getting ready elsewhere, or rearranging your wedding schedule.

Can you offer to pay a little more to use the room earlier?  They probably dont have any staffing or security on site before 8am which is why they wouldnt be able to have it available until 8am.  Have you seen the room?  Is it large enough for everyone to get their hair and makeup done in there?  I had a bridal room but I used it only to get dressed in and wait before the ceremony.  Theres no way I couldve fit everyone in there to get ready.
