These 5 simple things will make a huge difference in the first few hours of your wedding! Not only will they make the day more comfortable, they will drastically improve your photos! Be sure to talk with your planner and your photographer about having these 5 things in your bridal suite!
Natural LightI can not stress this enough. Have at least some form of window or access to natural light. It adds a fresh feel to the room and your hair and makeup artist will thank you! Overhead lights are typically yellow and cast unflattering shadows on the face. Your photographer could use flash but your images will be so much more natural and clean with natural light
A Large Mirror (or a few!)I cant tell you how many suites I’ve walked in with little or no mirrors. When your mom is zipping up your dress or your girls are all gathered around ooing and ahhing you will want a full length mirror! If there isn’t one there talk to your planner and venue about bringing one in ahead of time. Couple all the mirrors with natural light and your in for a treat when you receive your gallery!
A BathroomThis seems like a given but trust me, make sure a bathroom is either in the suite or directly next to it. Hair and makeup typically lasts at least 3 hours. You don’t want to have to walk to a bathroom and risk accidentally seeing your groom or before you are ready!
SnacksRemember the most important meal of the day? Have a good breakfast but don’t forget to have snacks! You’ll be spending a few hours here and once you leave the suite the day goes by so fast. Fuel up before it gets away from you!
Comfortable seatingWhoever isn’t in the hair and makeup chair will be hanging around for a while. Have a comfy place to rest and relax to set the tone for the rest of your wedding day! Grab a snack, look out the window, and enjoy the view!There are my 5 bridal suite must-haves. Was there something special you had in your suite? Drop a comment below and let me know!
