    getting ready in my old bedroom at mom’s house! our ceremony is early (230), so we are going to have a big brunch spread in the kitchen, all the girls milling around in the morning. i think it will be a nice, relaxing fun time before the festivities really begin. being able to get ready at home was one of the main reasons we decided to get married in my hometown instead of where we (and most of our family and friends) live now.

    we are all getting ready at a hotel because the ceremony/reception are not taking place where me/FI and are parents/bridal party live.

    should be fun!

    My ‘maids and i will be spending the night in a suite at the Dream Inn and getting ready together in the morning.  My church doesn’t have a room for us to get ready in, so I thought this would be the best option.

    I got to see the “bride’s room” today at our venue. I was super disappointed on the size and decor (lack of). I am not having a bridal party, but I really like the idea of my dearest, closest friends hanging out with me maybe like an hour before the wedding. NO WAY is that even possible in this room. We live in a tiny apartment, so that’s not a good option. Looks like it will probably be a hotel room for me!

    Our venue has a “bridal apartment” on the upper floor of the building at the ceremony/reception venue. I’m pretty excited about it; there are couches and plenty of chairs and a full kitchen and bathroom. Not a bad place to chill with the female types during the hours before the ceremony, not to mention moments to steal off and catch a breather during the reception. I am thinking that Fiance and groomsmen will get ready at the best man’s house, since he lives about 5 miles from the venue and has plenty of space for them to relax. (I… haven’t asked him yet, but he’ll probably be cool with it.) 😉

    I think your solution is the best one, especially given how nice the photos of the bridal group getting ready will look in a hotel room versus anywhere else. Photographers are usually very experienced with shooting the preparations in hotel room lighting so you’re bound to get good ones.

    @ Home. I think it will be better for me that way.

    I plan to get ready at home with my fiance. That’s how I will be most comfortable. I really don’t like ‘sleepovers,’ so I can’t imagine it any other way.

    Fiance and I are staying at my parents house together the night before the wedding. And then the next morning, as weird as it sounds, we’re getting ready at our reception venue. It’s an old 1800’s mansion that has a great upstairs with bedrooms perfect for getting ready and having pictures taken. And it’s only a 10 minute at most drive from the ceremony location.

    We are starting to get ready at my mom’s house, then finish up with the final touches and putting the dress on at the ceremony site.  The groom will get ready at our house and meet up for the ceremony!
