    Argh, yeah, we need to find places to get ready. I’d like them to be near the ceremony site, which cuts out pretty much all hotels, since there’s only one seedy motel in town (which is weird, considering this is a really nice, rich town!). We also have to consider space and asthetics.

    Our venue does not have dressing rooms so I will be getting ready at our hotel suite prior to the wedding, with my bridesmaids. And Fiance will get ready at home.

    My venue had a bridal room on the third floor of the building. It was only $50 to use, though I would have paid more than that just for the sake of convenience. It was so nice to have a secure, private place to stash my (and all of my bridesmaids’!) change of clothes/personal belongings/toiletries, and be able to sneak away for a quiet moment.

    Not to mention – and most importantly! – I needed to have a place to hide with the bridal party before my guests arrived. I didn’t want anyone seeing us before we all walked down the aisle!

    I can’t decide this and it’s the biggest bug bare to do with organising my wedding. It’s either my mum’s house (not massive and 40 mins from the venue) or the venue (have to be there uber early and not as much privacy.

    I wish I were getting ready in my childhood home but we moved out a few years ago :/

    @ticatica:  I have the same dilemma! My parents house about 40-45 mins away from the venue, so it’s  choice of either get reay at their house then drive to ages or arrive at venue really early and get ready there. I’m edging towards the first option.

    @Shaerena:  ….I’m edging towards the second but hearing you say that is making me re think! I can picture myself rolling up to the venue on the day with mirrors, an iron, half the contents of my flat etc etc just to be sure I’ve not forgotten anything!

    We’ll be doing a hotel suite, but that’s because the venue is 500 miles from my parents house.  Otherwise, it totally would be there…

    We’ve rented a gorgeous traditional 3 + bedroom house for myself and my cousins (no bridesmaids) to get ready together (our house is too small and with two kitties that think wedding dresses look like fun to play with! not taking that risk!) – then we’ll be spending a few nights there ourselves (no honeymoon – new jobs – no leave)… My guy is getting ready at a nearby hotel suite really close to the reception… very cool hotel, very manly deco!  With no honeymoon planned – it is definitely worth it for us!

    I got ready at the church. They had a large room with a lounging area with couches, a really big mirror to get ready, a dinning area with a table and chairs, and there was a bathroom. It was big but probably sounds bigger than it was.

    Does your ceremony location have a room that you could use?

    @memorialbride13:  My venue has a 900 square foot loft suite for the bride and groom to stay the night of the wedding, and it’s the perfect space for my bridesmaids and I to get ready, with private entrance so anyone arriving early can not see 🙂

    • Wedding: September 2011 - Clark Gardens

    Our venue had a guest house on the property, and all of the wedding party stayed there and got ready there. It was absolutely 100% worth it. I loved having everyone in one house all together all weekend.

    I plan to get ready at our current house.  Fi will be ‘banished’ to his cousin’s house (who is also a gm).  Both houses are super close to the venues (and our house is literally a stones throw away from fi’s cousin’s house.  

    I might have to go to the salon to get my hair and makeup done though for like 2 hours but I’ll see if I cna get her to come to my house if it won’t be too hectic.
