You’re getting married soon, and there’s so much to think about. From the dress to the cake to the flowers, there are a million decisions to make. One thing you might not have considered yet is your getting ready space. But trust me, it’s important. Here’s why:
First of all, your getting ready space sets the tone for the day. If you’re getting ready in a cluttered, cramped room with bad lighting, it’s going to be stressful. But if you’re in a spacious, well-lit area with plenty of room for your bridesmaids and hair and makeup artists, you’ll be relaxed and ready to enjoy the day.
Secondly, your getting ready space is where you’ll spend some of the most intimate moments of the day. You’ll be getting dressed, having your hair and makeup done, and spending time with your closest friends and family. You want to make sure the space is comfortable and welcoming, and that it reflects your personal style.
So, what should you consider when choosing your getting ready space? Here are a few things to think about:
1. Location: Ideally, your getting ready space should be close to your ceremony and reception venues. This will save time and stress on the day of the wedding.
2. Size: Make sure the space is big enough to accommodate you, your bridal party, and your hair and makeup artists. You don’t want to be cramped and uncomfortable.
3. Lighting: Good lighting is crucial for your hair and makeup artists to do their best work. Make sure the space is well-lit, either with natural light or plenty of lamps and light fixtures.
4. Style: Your getting ready space should reflect your personal style. If you’re having a rustic wedding, consider a barn or farmhouse. If you’re going for a more modern vibe, look for a loft or sleek hotel room.
5. Amenities: Think about what you’ll need in your getting ready space. Do you want a kitchen to prepare snacks and drinks? A bathroom with plenty of mirrors? A comfortable seating area for your bridesmaids to relax in?
Your getting ready space might not be the first thing on your wedding to-do list, but it’s definitely an important decision. Take the time to choose a space that reflects your style, is comfortable and accommodating, and sets the tone for a stress-free and enjoyable wedding day. Happy planning!
