Morning of - getting ready at hotel!

I'm getting ready at the hotel I chose for my guests (staying price conscious bc everyone is flying in and mostly young couples and families) but I have my cinematographer and photographers all day literally from breakfast until the after party is over... the hotel is fine but nothing like our venue (a castle) and im spending five figures on photography/video so I want the photos of us getting ready to look cozy and personal.. the opposite of a generic hotel lol I need some ideas on how to decorate or warm up the hotel rooms we will be getting ready in. Candles? bring my own comforter, idk? I just want it to look as special as it feels that morning! It seems trivial but its something I can't get past!

    It’s not trivial! How about you bring a tote that will have things from home? Pics of you 2, comforter, your robes, wine glasses etc.

    Thats a great idea! Maybe I can even use some of our ceremony flowers to get extra use out of them!

    If you're spending 5 figures on photography, I guarantee the photographers are skilled enough to make any room look romantic and beautiful! That's why you pay the big bucks!

    That said if you truly want some amazing photos...would you consider splurging to book a nicer hotel just for yourself (your guests of course can still stay at the affordable hotel)? Does the castle have a getting ready room or area?

    Yes, they are incredible, that was the hill that I was willing to die on because I am super sentimental and love photographs! (They include a really cool dj too.) That's a very good point.

    So the castle has a getting ready room but they don't allow hairspray or perfume etc and you can't touch anything 🤣 also I don't have access until 2pm because it's also a museum so I'm like well thats not gonna work with my 12 ladies needing hair and makeup. One of my issues is that my friends and family are all flying in. I think three families, including my parents, are driving out of 150 people. So even if I do get a vintage hotel room thats more romantic and my taste, the 12 getting hair and make up now have to find a way to get to me at my hotel. I guess some might have rental cars though. Why is wedding planning so hard lol maybe I'm just being too picky or worrying about my guests too much. At least I have plenty of time to figure it out.

    I would definitely consult with the hotel and make sure you book their nicest/most aesthetically beautiful suite for your stay. And look at tons of pictures of your specific room online (google, hotels.com, Instagram, etc) so you can plan exactly what items are needed and would look good in the room.

    We are dling rhe same, getting ready at hotel thenask having some" fake "getting ready pics at the venues bridal suite.. Does the hotel have a suite? We got a discount on the JR suite since we booked 10 rooms with the block. It is large and has a big table, a sofa and plenty of room. We are bringing in flowers and some pops of color just to jazz ir up a bit.
