Your outdoor wedding venue is more than the place where you will get married; it’s potentially where you will get ready to be married as well. While you definitely want the setting for your wedding ceremony and reception to be memorable, it’s also important that you and your bridesmaids are comfortable while applying makeup, doing hair, and getting dressed. That’s why it’s so important to ask your outdoor wedding venue the right questions about your bridal dressing room.
1. Is There a Place for You to Get Ready?
It may surprise you how many outdoor venues do not provide a bridal dressing room. If the venue you love happens to be one of these, don’t fret. You can always get ready somewhere else and relocate just before the ceremony.
2. Does the Bridal Dressing Room have Air-Conditioning and Heat?
This may seem like a no-brainer, but some special occasion venues don’t provide heat and air in their bridal dressing room. Be sure to ask this question before booking, otherwise you and your girls may be in for an uncomfortable day!
3. Is There Enough Space for You and Your Bridesmaids?
Bridal dressing rooms and cottages vary in size greatly. In some cases, there’s room only for the bride-to-be and the bridesmaids will need to get ready somewhere else. If you want dressing to be a social activity, however, a small dressing room simply won’t do.
4. Can You Leave Personal Items There During the Ceremony?
Some outdoor wedding venues offer a place to get ready, but close it during and after the ceremony. Make sure you specify early whether you and your girls are able to leave your personal belongings securely in the space for the ceremony and reception.
