I don’t think there would be a problem with same hotel.   I think it would be pain to make the photographer travel a lot and miss a lot of photo opportunities.

My Darling Husband got ready at his parents’ house and I got ready at mom’s.  Both were within 5 minutes drive from each other and just minutes from the church.

The girls will get ready at the hotel we will be staying at that night, the guys will too. It’s just a short drive from the venue, so it’s the easiest for us. I think it’s quite typical and not a problem at all.

I think he’s checking into our hotel around 3 and the weddings at 5 so he’ll probably get ready there. We live an hour from there and my hair dresser is back here so I’ll most likely be getting ready at my grandmothers house. The photographer will be with us and then when we get to the venue he will take some ‘before shots with the groom and his guys just checking each others ties and such’. We didn’t know what else to do… lol I don’t think anythings wrong with being in the same hotel- go for it!

My and my girls did our hair and make-up at the hotel we were staying at. Our photographers came and got pictures of that and then about an hour before we left for the venue, one of them went to go to the venue where Mr. Hedgie and his men were getting dressed. The other stayed with us girls and got pictures of us getting dressed and the final touches. It was perfect. We even had time for group pictures before the 4 pm ceremony! (Mr. Hedgie and I didn’t see eachother before though)

My girls and I are getting ready at the venue..we rented it for 12 hours and they have a really nice brides room..

Fiance will probably get ready at our place or one of his groomsmen’s.

I will be getting ready at the location(hair dresser and makeup artist will be coming out and he will be at the barbar shop and the house. We are not going to have pics of him getting ready. I think its fine and makes a lot of sense for you both to get ready at the same place as a PP said a lot of picture oppurtunities could be missed with all the driving around and who cares if its frowned upon, its your wedding and none of anyone else’s business.

He is getting ready in a suite 1 floor above mine. But we aren’t doing the “the groom can’t see the bride before the walk down the aisle” thing, so it doesn’t really matter. We’re staying together the night before, having breakfast together the morning of, having a first look before the ceremony, etc.
