How to Choose a Getting Ready Location

When it comes to choosing where you should get ready for your big day, you usually put it at the bottom of your list to take care of, because you have a million other things to do. However, it is still very important that you decide where you should get ready. There are a variety of factors that go into picking the perfect location! You also have to keep in mind what you want your getting-wedding- ready photos to look like. 

Thankfully, we’ve already taken care of this one for you with our his and hers getting ready suites right here on property! But keep readying to know what you’re looking for before you get here. 

The Venue

Keep the wedding venue in mind. If you choose a hotel, then it is best to reserve a room or suite to get ready in. The closer you are to the venue the better, you don’t have to worry about traffic or running late. You can also ask if your chosen venue has a bridal suite, if they do, make sure to ask about time restrictions or any limitations that may apply to the space. Other people may need the space as well.


When looking for the perfect place to get ready, you also need to take into account the size and space of the room or suite. Is there enough room to fit your bridal party and family members that you want in your room? Is there enough room for everyone’s dresses, bags, and accessories? Is there enough room to hang your dress? Is there enough room for your make-up artist to come in and work? Is there enough room for the hairdresser to work? Is there enough room without everyone being over crowded and cluttered?

Cleanliness and Character

In recent years, brides are turning to renting AirBnB’s for the weekend or week. With cute unique places to get ready, it will allow for more special getting ready photos. There are so many different and beautiful places that are being offered for you to rent for your own personal use, it would be a waste if you didn’t jump on the opportunity! Plus it makes for beautiful photos that are contrast to typical hotel venue photos. There are also a lot of options to give you the open space you desire as well as giving you and your bridesmaids some room to spread out.


If you want a  completely unique space you can try for an outside getting ready suite. Setting up a large bridal tent is the perfect way to go. It’ll make for amazing memories as well as photos. It also allows for you to easily come and go with different landscapes as backdrops. This also works well if you are having an outdoors wedding. Whether it is on an estate or in the forest, if the weather allows it, it is the perfect suite!
