A bit of a silly idea, but could you wear a coat/blanket? Then your dress will be covered and you will be warm. Could you ask your Fiance to face in a different direction than the windows until you are safely at the correct entrance?

Maybe he can wear a blindfold until its time for the procession to begin! 🙂 Makes for an amazing story…

I have this EXACT same situation. There happens to be a tiny room in the front of the chapel, but it is all sliding glass doors, and I’d need to be there super early so that none of the guests see me. The main place to get ready is at the back of the chapel & I, too, would have to walk around the side of the chapel past all of the big glass windows.

I think there are two options… it might sound silly, but if there’s a little driveway, perhaps you could get ready at the back of the church, jump in a car so no one sees you and drive the 200 or 300 feet back to the front of the chapel.

Or, what I’ve decided to do is to just get ready at the hotel, and time it so that I arrive at the church only minutes before I need to inside. Hopefully all of the guests will be there, and the groom and groomsmen will already be up front. And then me, my parents, and my bridesmaids will arrive, get out of the car and walk right in. We just did this at my cousin’s wedding because she had a similar situation and it worked perfectly!
