    The hotel sounds like a great way to start your wedding day! If cost isn’t a huge issue I’d do that in a heartbeat!

    I agree. My girls and I are staying in a hotel watching movies etc. Getting up and meeting my mom at panara for breakfast and then off to the salon. Girl bonding time and a hotel, so it feels special I guess like not a normal night at home.

    Hotel, if it’s affordable for sure! Sounds like a great time with the girls 🙂 I never thought about it until I realized how strong the tradition was here to spent the night apart, so I’m having all the girls over at our house and he’ll be staying with his best man the night before! I’m actually exctied for all the girl time! So I do think it’s important!

    I’m staying at my parent’s house the night before in my room where I grew up.  I like the sentiment behind sleeping in the same bed where I would be laying and talking to my now Fiance for hours on end while he was away at grad school and the same house where I texted him all day long when we were seperated for Christmas break in college shortly after we started dating.  I love the sentiment of it and the idea of spending my last night before marriage with my family.

    Your situation might be completely different though if your parents are living in the house where you grew up or you don’t have any kind of sentimental hold on the house.  Whether you decide between your parents house or the hotel, I would def NOT skip over getting ready with your BMs… you’ll regret not having the bonding experience and the pictures later on!

    I vote for the hotel idea if it isn’t too pricey for you. That would be lots of fun. I kinda wish that we were taking my closest female friend to Vegas with us so I could have that girl time with her before the wedding.

    I vote for the hotel idea. You’ll have fun with your girls and have memories that’ll you’ll cherish forever. But if it’s too pricey maybe your parents home

    My friend didnt have a lot of space so she borroed full length mirrors a week ahead of time and set them up in the kitchen/living room area. There was plenty of bathroom and mirror space this way.

    Why can’t y’all meet at the church and get ready there? I thought most churches had bridal suites for the bridal party to get ready. If not, they have huge bathrooms (usually) and a lot of space do a luncheon.

    If that’s not an option, I would choose your parent’s house. Have your mom buy a full length mirror so you can at least look at yourself thoroughly. Those cost about $8 at Wal Mart.

    oooo i’m torn because brunch sounds so good! lol  

    can you have someone (mom, aunt, whatever), bring in some breaky for the girls at the hotel?  it would be awesome if someone could cook and bring it over, but if not, even picking up bagels, etc. would work.  if your answer is yes, then i vote for hotel.

    I vote for hotel. If you let the hotel know beforehand that you need extra chairs they can probably arrange that.

    Totally go for the hotel, if you can! I had such a good time with my girlfriends, we swam in the pool, drank champagne, had tons of appetizer platters out. 

    We all went to the salon together the next morning and we brought bagels/juice they even let us pop a bottle of champagne there while we were getting ready.
