So my dilemma is that I am having my wedding at a restaurant I’m doing the ceremony and the reception in a restaurant and my issue is that I don’t know where to have all my girls get ready with me. I really really want to have that getting ready moment with them with my mom and my future mother-in-law and I don’t know where to do it. I can’t do it at my house because I have two cats and a dog and some of my girls are allergic to cats and I don’t want my dog everywhere with the make up and hair and all that so, I’m thinking of like maybe renting a hotel suite or something like that and that way maybe I could turn it into like a slumber party with my girls so that I don’t have to see my fiancé the morning of the the wedding before we get married. but I’m not really sure so if anybody had the same dilemma, or maybe has some kind of a advise that really great
My only advice would be to make sure the hotel space is large enough. The only reason I caution against a hotel is that's where my husband, the best man, the groomsman, one of my husband's other friends, my dad, and my brother (bride's man) got ready ready on the morning of our wedding and they were packed in their like sardines. I will say it wasn't a suite. It was just a regular hotel room. My other suggestion would be an Airbnb.
That’s fine but keep in mind you can invite but not require anyone to stay overnight with you in a shared hotel suite. You’d need to make it optional and make it clear it’s fine for anyone who wants to join you on the day of the wedding. Otherwise people may feel pressured because they want to accommodate the bride.
Getting a hotel/Airbnb works. You could also look into getting a sitter/boarder for your pets that weekend (and then thoroughly cleaning your house to remove the pet hair others might be allergic to). Or if any of the moms/bridesmaids have a suitable place (just make sure to give them the space to say no if they don’t want a whole crowd taking over their space for a day and make sure to provide food and drinks and all of that yourself).
