So my venue is not an option for us to get ready at as I only have it for so many hours so I’m struggling on trying to find a place to do so! I’ve contacted a few Airbnb host but just thought I would ask for other recommendations
Have you already booked your hair and makeup artist? Some salons offer bridal services in their salon and may even have a separate room where you can relax and get ready. The downside to that is you likely could not leave anything there. Hotels and AirBnbs, or someone's house, are also good options.
We did an AirBnB and it worked perfectly! I stayed there the night before as well as the wedding night. We did a first look before the ceremony so it was a great place for our bridal party to hang and have lunch while we were taking bride & groom portraits. I would definitely let your host know ahead of time what you are using it for since it will be likely be over the max guest count.
Depending on what is available in your area you might be able to find a unique cute cottage rather than a standard hotel. Ours looked great in getting ready photos and we even used the back garden for our first look!
I'm also doing an Airbnb. I found a really nice town house near my venue that's actually been used for bridal parties before. I'm really excited about it. I'll stay there the night before with my bridesmaids and then FH and I can stay there after the wedding. A lot of times the cost is equal to or less than a hotel room as well.
We will be booking a hotel suite for the night before the wedding and the night of the wedding. It has a beautiful getting ready area and a private terrace with a view of the city! I would look into hotels in your area. Airbnb is a good option too!
Hotels and Airbnbs are the best options I've seen! We're getting married in a Mansion turned event center and hotel, so we have rooms booked for that. But it's the same as a hotel set-up and I highly recommend. The perks for room service, etc. make it really all-inclusive for the morning of.
We have an AirBnB booked to get ready in near the venue. All the bridesmaids will stay there with me the night before, and then we will get ready in the morning! My hair and makeup artist will travel to me (I just had to pay a fee). We found a nice house with lots of land so we can also take pictures there
Our hotel block allows for use of their ballroom, so our plan is to get ready there. They said that they have mirrors, chairs, etc. to bring in so that we can get ready. Nonetheless, my momzilla is still concerned that the dress will get wrinkled If I wear it or transport it in the bag to the venue, but that's honestly not a concern of mine. The dress was $$$$ and if it can withstand hours of wedding looking nice, it can last a 10min car ride looking nice too.
