I am getting my hair and makeup done in my hotel room and I will be getting dressed in the basement of my church.

I didn’t hink I would find anyone to come to me to do my hair (because my wedding is in the middle of no where), but I posted on Craigslist and I received a lot of responses.  They charged a fee for driving, but it was relatiively cheap and worth it for me to not be running about the day of my wedding.

Yes, I posted on the nearest big city, which was about 60 miles away.

I had my stylist and makeup artist come to us. We did everything at my house (and got some great pro photos of the pets! Too cute.)….then were dressed at the venue.

I have to say, it was very relaxing as I was getting ready at my own house. I was in my element, so it helped sustain my mood and emotions. Plus, I didn’t have to worry about forgetting anything…I had all day to put things together.

We decided to get ready at my house. Our church doesnt have a place to get ready either and plus we would have to lug everything there and worry about getting it all back home. I plan to have snacks for us and I know if we need anything we will be in a fully equipped house. Also our hair and makeup people will come to us, it will be a nice relaxing way to get ready, the comfort of my own home.

we’re getting ready all over… hair in the salon, then make-up and BMs get dressed at my parents’ house.  There is only one small back room in the church where we’re getting married, so that is where I’ll put on my dress.

 Have you actually talked with the nearby hotel to discuss your situation?  A lot of hotels will work with you on check-in/check-out times if you give them a bit of notice.  It might be nice to put on your dress and walk right over to the  church…

 on the other hand, 6 miles won’t hurt your dress and you should be a-okay.

Hmm, I really haven’t thought too much about this! But I’m hoping to either get ready in the hotel room with my BMs or at the church. I’d prefer the hotel cause my stuff will stay put there…whereas the church, I’ll have to collect it or have somebody get it afterwards!

All of the girls are getting ready at my parents’ house because we’re going to a local lake to get pictures done first (as long as it’s not raining, fingers crossed).

I’ll probably be getting ready at my mom’s house. The church is twenty minutes away, but it only has one small room for getting ready, with poor lighting and no good mirrors. Eek!

We’re getting our hair & makeup done at a salon in a nearby town, and then taking over a couple of rooms in the church hall to get dressed. I don’t want to have to stuff my rather large dress in a car any more than I have to, and the church has plenty of room for my small bridal party anyhow. Plus, since it is always kept locked and a family member has the key, we can leave our stuff at the church the night before and know it won’t be disturbed. Less chance of forgetting things that morning!

I am staying at the hotel which is next door to the hall…so this should save me a lot of time as I wont have to travel! We are getting married during the day so I wont have all that much time to get ready!
