It’s quite normal here for brides to travel an hour to their ceremony. I don’t see that as an issue but with only 4 weeks it might be difficult to rearrange. It’s really unfair of your aunt to pull out so late in the day.

could you have you’re hair and make up at the salon and then head to the hotel? Would that help with check in times? Or does your fiancé have other family nearby? I wouldn’t pay $1200 for a hotel.

marivettem:  Does your hotel offer early check-in maybe? Or, perhaps, conference rooms that can be rented to get ready in?

What about the bridal party? Do any of them live closer to the church? It’s a big ask, but if it means they can get ready somewhere comfortable that might be Preferable in their opinion. Or possibly they know someone in the area who won’t mind.

I might ask the aunt myself, explaining that many things will now need to be changed in a short time frame. 

Also, does the church have a “crying room/nursery”?  Several ladies I know got ready literally AT the church, in the room set aside for crying babies.  Or even a Sunday school classroom on the church property might work if they can agree to it.

I would ask about the conference room that someone suggested.  Is renting an entire house on airbnb an option?

Like others have said, if there is a room or two in the church to get ready in, I would ask to see if you could do everything there. That would definitely save money. If not then I would go for getting ready at the salon. If youre hair and makeup is relatively early, its not like there will be a lot of other people in the salon. I was a bridesmaid in my cousin”s wedding and thats what we did, the pictures came out just fine. Not as good as it would have been if it were in a hotel, but they were still very nice and got the job done.
