Who's getting ready with you on the wedding day?

Who did you have with you when you were getting ready on your wedding day? And who did your husband have? I know I will have my MOH (we are not having full bridal party), mother, MIL… but do I have my stepmom and my fiancé’s stepmom also get ready with us? And his sisters (he has 5 of them)? I will be paying for my MOH hair/makeup, mother’s and MIL. But I think outside of that the others will pay for self.

    I had my 3 bridesmaids, my Mom and my Mom-in-law, in which I paid for everyone to get their hair and makeup done.
    My husband had his 5 groomsmen, my son, my Dad and Uncle.

    My daughter (14) is my MOH, so she'll be with me. Also, my closest girlfriends (3 of them) will be there. We're not having a 'bridal party' (just MOH and Best Man), but they're my "honorary bridesmaids" if you will, so they're going to get ready with me and some are paying to get hair/make-up done just because! My mom and future MIL will stop by at some point to hang out/have a mimosa and pick up their corsages. For my fiance, he's getting ready with his best man then having some of his closest friends and family (like 7-8 guys total) to stop by and have a toast/some drinks with him before he goes to the ceremony. I think it's whatever works best for you and keeps you stress-free and happy on your special day! Smiley smile

    I will only be having my bridesmaids with me. Our families are far too large to include everyone, and no one except my bridal party will be getting hair and makeup done. I figure I give my family time off in the morning to do whatever and then they'll show up when we take photos before the ceremony.

    My two bridesmaids (my sister and SIL-to-be) will be staying the night before and then my two closest girlfriend and both mothers will join us on the morning of to get their hair and makeup done. My fiance will have his two brothers with him, his dad, his mum for some of the time before/after she comes to me, plus possibly his brother's wives. He's organised accommodation for them and there are several houses since there are so many of them, so I'm not exactly sure who will be where on his side, haha!

    Keep it small! You want your closest people with you as you prepare to marry the love of your life. More and more people kept entering my room as the ceremony got closer and I would have liked to have kept them out. They didn't bother me, it just got overwhelming quickly!

    My 2st wedding in 2012 I had all my bridesmaids, my mother, and my stylists/MUA.

    This time I will have my 2 best friends, my 2 sisters (if they show up), my 12 year old bonus daughter, and my stylist/MUA. The room was too crowded last time and we're also not having a wedding party at all this time.

    I don't have a bridal party so I'm still thinking about this. My man of honor's boyfriend is doing my hair and make up so I don't know if he is more comfortable doing it at their house or coming to mine. If so I'll go there in the am and finish getting ready with my mom, aunt and grandmother at her house.

    My daughter who was 9 at the time. We went to the salon and got our hair done then went and had lunch together just the two of us. Then just prior to walking down the aisle my three sisters and mom came into the bathroom of our church to help me put on my dress and make a few adjustments.

    No bridal party so it'll just be me and my hair stylist friend hopefully. Perhaps my mother too. My bride will be with her parents.
