Getting Ready for the Ceremony...
One thing to always consider when planning for the actual Wedding Day, is where you anticipate getting ready with your bridesmaids for the ceremony. Many wedding venues have a ‘Bridal Suite’ or a room available for the Bridal party to get ready. This room does not have to be large or fancy; a small, quaint room located in the venue is perfect. All you need is a place to “get ready with the girls” before you make your Grand Entrance. Having some snacks and mimosas to calm the nerves is also a great idea. Many brides have food delivered to their location or designate a friend or family member outside of the bridal party to run errands that day.
Let’s not forget about the Groom and Groomsmen! It is also important to determine where the Groom’s party will be getting ready on the Wedding Day. Even though your Groom may tell you, “I’ll figure it out” or “Don’t worry about it,” encourage him to determine a place that he would like to get ready with the guys. It is a hassle to plan these arrangements last minute - trust me. Some venues also have a room set aside for the Groom’s Suite as well. When shopping for a wedding venue, ask about the Bride and Groom’s Suites or rooms where your parties are able to get ready. It’s always a bonus when these rooms are included in the price like at Eyry of the Eagle!
Eyry of the Eagle provides both a Bridal Suite and a barn for the Groom’s party to celebrate and get ready for the ceremony. The Bridal Suite is a beautifully finished couple of rooms located in the back of the reception hall. Both rooms are equipped with plenty of mirrors and lighting and air conditioning. They’re very well decorated and the perfect space for a Bridal Party to hang out in.
The barn that the gentleman are able to use on the wedding day, is located near the front of the property quite a ways away from the Bridal Suite. This prevents any unwanted interaction before the ceremony; however, it is very convenient to have the entire wedding party prepping for the ceremony so close to the ceremony location. The barn provides a kitchen for the Groom’s party to use, and plenty of space to enjoy their time before the Wedding Events. The Barn also provides a great backdrop for photo opportunities. Both the Bridal Suite and the Barn add a level of convenience and take away the stress of determining locations to prep before the wedding. Eyry of the Eagle does a great job of providing the Bride and Groom with convenience and easy planning.
