Where are you getting ready?

Hi all,
I wanted to know where (hotel room, room in the venue, etc) you’re getting ready at. The location for my wedding only has a bathroom (with two stalls and 1 sink; it’s pretty small) for getting ready in so I want to explore some other options for the big day.

    I'm doing my hair and makeup at my hotel. Then slipping on my dress at the venue. They have a small bridal suite.

    A lot of brides get an AirBnB for the day. Maybe there are a couple near your venue.

    Good idea! I hadn’t thought about that.

    Our venue has a brides suite upstairs above where we're having the reception! So while I'm getting ready I'll be able to look down at everything being set up (which is a relief because I know I'll be wondering what's going on). There's also a groom suite in a separate building so my FH and groomsmen will be getting ready there also.

    Our venue has a bridal suite and grooms quarters, both with showers, thank God! We have access beginning at 8:00am and I am a slight control freak so I'll probably be micromanaging the decor/flowers in the morning and showering at the venue before the HMUA arrive!

    We'll be staying at a hotel 5 minutes from the venue the night before the wedding, so we will get ready there. Our venue has a bridal "room", but it's kind of small, and has no bathroom. So, I'll get ready at the hotel, with my BMs, and we'll go to the venue right before the first look.

    Our venue is a hotel/ ballroom. We have the bridal suite the night before the wedding and the wedding night. So I am staying there the night before and then getting ready there with my BMs.

    I'm doing hair and make up at the salon and then getting in my dress at the venue. My venue has a bridal suite so I don't have to worry about space or not having enough room

    I had my hair and makeup done at the spa in my hotel and got my bra on in my hotel room and then got my dress on at the changing room in the venue.

    Thank goodness our venue has a “bridal” suite and a “groom’s” suite. We are a same sex couple and have mixed genders on either side of our party, so we were really concerned about how the getting ready process was going to go. We’ve decided to get ready at the venue and have hair set up in one suite and makeup set up in the other so that the bridal party, photographers, and videographers can easily go back and forth. If we didn’t have suites to get ready in, we would have rented an Airbnb or two rooms in the same hotel.

    We are getting ready at a house we are renting as there isn't a true getting ready space at our venue and hotel would be too small for 12-15 of us to get ready in.

    We're renting an Airbnb so that's where we'll be getting ready.
