My girls and I stayed in a suite.  They were kind enough to all go in on it.  It was an absolute blast.

My friend stayed in a hotel suite. I don’t know if she stayed overnight and woke up there or just went there in the morning. When I was looking at a hotel for the venue, the coordinator told me she’d give me a room to get ready in, morning-of, for free. I just would’ve needed to coordinate getting our things out of the hotel and to the car before the wedding though, so she instead offered a hotel room overnight for a steep discount instead of the full rate.

Maybe you could call around for some good deals?

Does your venue have a bridal suite? We will be staying in the hotel the night before and heading over to the bridal suite at the venue to get ready.

We are staying in the Omni for our wedding night, but we want to get more use out of the $300 room than just to sleep and get busy. We will request an early check in time so us girls can get ready. Their normal check in time is 4pm and we will request for 1pm. They said that sometimes people even request an 8am check in time. This way, we can have nice photos in the hotel while we are getting ready too! I’m just going to make sure the bridesmaids make sure the room is clean before they leave the hotel. Just a thought. ๐Ÿ™‚

I rented out a B&B near our venue. It was expensive, but it’ll be so worth it, plus I have extra space to put guests who maybe can’t afford a hotel room.

We (my BMs and I) will be getting ready at my hair saloon.  Ive had the same stylist for ages – and shes planning on providing brunch, etc.  We’ll stay there for hair, makeup, etc. and then travel to the church.  I wont get into my gown until I’m at the church though.

How many girls do you have? I’d just squish in a regular room or junior suite – ask for a larger room (like a corner room) if you can’t afford a suite.

Is it a requirement for you that you all have a sleepover the night before?  Why not just get a hotel room and have your bridesmaids meet you there in the morning?

Did you reserve a block of hotel rooms for your guests? If you did, check with that hotel and see if they would be willing to let you and your girls use a suite, or even just a room, to get ready in the morning of. You can sleep at your house, then all head over to the hotel in the morning to get ready. They may be able to give it to you at a discounted rate since you won’t be sleeping over (and since you are already giving them a ton of business by reserving a block there). It wouldn’t hurt to ask!
