I would love to hear what anyone is doing for theirs? Food, duration and also WHERE? I think for me the only option would be an extra room of sorts at our hotel…so should I get another salon or room only for this? Would it be weird to go back to our honeymoon suite? It just occurred to me that the picture I had in my head doesnt exist.

we used the "bridal suite" in our venue (which was not a hotel, but rather an event space). we were in there for about 10 minutes alone before one of the serving staff came up with a tray of wine and hors’deurves for us. we ate for about 10 minutes (polished off the tray, knowing that it could be the only real food we had for the next 3 hours), then went down to join our guests for cocktail hour. It depends on how much of your cocktail hour you are willing to miss, whether you are getting photos after the ceremony, how long it would take you to get to your honeymoon suite, etc.

We’re using the site coordinator’s office because it’s close. The caterers will have food there waiting for us. We’re planning about 15 minutes after which we’ll go take some pictures, just the two of us.

We had a classroom that we were supposed to use, and the caterer told us that they would make up a plate for us. But as it turns out, we really just wanted to spend time with our guests and ended up skipping it. I actually don’t regret that at all — the day went by so quickly that I wish we had more time to spend with our guests.

Sorry, I should mention that our ceremony/reception was in a museum, so the classroom was a room in the back of the venue that was closed off to the guests.
