I’m in a sticky situation here… I live in a very tiny 1 bedroom apartment and the venue where I am getting married has no place for me to get ready. I have also just learned that the weekend of our big day is the same weekend as the big rodeo in town so all of the hotels are charging double what they normally would for rooms…. and our parents do not have big houses. Does anyone have suggestions on where my bridal party & I can get ready??? I’m really starting to stress out about the situation!
Your help would be so greatly appreciated!

beachbride127: are there any B&B’s around? Historical buildings that you might be able to rent out for a few hours?

Do any of your girls have a house that you guys can get ready? If not, you may have to bite the bullet and pay for one of those pricey rooms but the hotel may be lenient and charge you normal if they know its your wedding day and what the room is for… Tough situation and I hope other bees have better advice than me!

I’d just get ready at home!
I got ready in a hotel suite that couldn’t be much larger than your one bedroom apt. And we had a ton of people in and out of that space – 3 bridesmaids, myself, cousin doing hair, sister doing makeup, friend ironing dress, other friends just there to enjoy getting ready, my step-mom and grandmother popping in to say hi… You don’t really need all that much space. Plus, if you’re at home you don’t have to worry as much about remembering every little thing to get ready – it’s all in your apartment! And it’s easier to have snacks and drinks and such at your apartment, because you don’t have to trasport them and have easy heating and cooling options. The only downside is you’ll want your apt to be, at least semi-clean, but I think it’s worth it!

AlmostMrsPeck: There aren’t any places I am aware of that would rent out for a decent price :/

JenGirl: I have 6 bridesmaids and I live an hour away from where we are getting hitched! It would be so inconvenient to have everyone trek out here and then for all of us to trek to the site. My shoebox is definitely smaller than even the cheapest motels I have been to, haha! Most of my bridesmaids are from out of town and will be staying in hotels anyway… I just wish they weren’t so stinkin’ expensive! thanks for the input 🙂

Could you not get ready in one of the hotels a bridesmaid is staying in?

beachbride127: Ah. Didn’t realize they were an hour apart. That’s legit. I agree with ms-tea: Can you do it one of the bridesmaid’s hotel room?
