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.

    We are starting to get ready at our cabin in the master suite ( lots of girls and not enough time at venue before ceremony). Then at noon we will head to venue and finish getting ready in bridal suite. I'm so excited for the bridal suite honestly! Its so beautiful and has floor length mirrors and couches and then theres an attached restroom with vanity seating in front of the mirrors as well for BM to finish getting ready.

    My bridesmaids and I will be getting our hair and makeup done at a hotel that's 3 miles away from our venue. We plan to get dressed at the venue.

    Our reception venue has 2 dressing rooms that we have access to. We will be getting ready there and the boys will get a ride from a family member and us girls will be riding the bridal party bus (so he doesnt see me beforehand).

    Our venue has cabins on property that can be used for our bridal suites. So we will each get ready in our own cabin on the venue property.

    I'm still deciding. It'll probably be a one of the three hotels less than 5 minutes from the venue.

    Im just getting ready at home. I have lots of space in our family room with great natural light. I think my hair/makeup person will have no problem setting up there.

    Me and my bridesmaids are spending the night before the wedding at the hotel I work at. We're going to do most of the getting ready there, and then when we arrive at the venue we'll do finishing touches on hair/makeup and put on our dresses. They have a bridal suite and groom suite at our venue, but they're pretty small and I think there's only one bathroom upstairs on the same level as those rooms (there's 2 in the reception area in the basement). The groom's suite has its own private sink and the bridal suite has a vanity, but again, I don't think that'll work for 1 bride, 1 groom, 4 bridesmaids, 4 groomsmen, and 1 ring bearer and 1 flowergirl that are both full grown adults. Lol Smiley xd

    I'm getting ready at my moms. It's a tight squeeze with all of my girls but I am excited to have such great time with the most important ladies in my life.

    I'm hoping my venue has a bridal suite but if not probably a hotel.

    We're all getting ready at my mom's house, and our hair and makeup stylists and my photographer are all going to be there as well.

    Our venue is a hotel / reception hall. My FH and I are staying in the bridal suite the night before and of our wedding. He will spend day with his groomsmen in one of their rooms (they are from out of town so both have rooms) and get ready with them while I get ready with our daughters and one of my bridesmaids in the suite. I have hair and makeup coming to the suite as well.

    We were originally going to do hair and makeup at a salon to save money and come back to the venue to fully get dressed. About 2 weeks ago (one month out from the wedding) we decided it would be better to have hair and makeup come to us at the venue so that we wouldn’t have so much driving back and forth. Now we are getting ready at our venue as they have a bridal suite right off the ballroom as well as a grooms suite. FH and groomsmen will be getting ready at the hotel before coming to venue for the first look and pictures.
