A wedding is a joyous time filled with many ceremonies and details, and for members of the bridal party, one of the most important such details is the bridal suite. This is the private area where only the bride and her closest friends and family will spend time, and it’s often one of the most cherished and important parts of a wedding for the bride.
At The Ranch at San Patricio, our event centers feature luxurious bridal suites where the bride-to-be can get the pampering, attention and love she deserves on her big day. Here are a few complimentary tips from us on how to properly set up a bridal suite to make sure the bride’s experience is maximized to the fullest.
No one wants to be trapped in a small, dingy room on the morning of their wedding. The more light and space, the better – look for ways to increase natural light in the room, and lay everything out in a smart format that leaves plenty of space available. Make sure there’s ample room for the photographer, who will want to capture some of the special moments in this room.
The dress the bride is wearing deserves its own moment in the spotlight, so give it one. Find a safe place to store it in the bridal suite that also allows easy viewing – both for the photographer and for anyone who may come to visit. Make sure there’s nothing around that could damage or otherwise impact the dress before the bride puts it on.
There are going to be some arduous moments while makeup and other beauty preparations are made, so make sure all the essentials needed are stocked up in advance. This also includes snacks or mimosas for the suite, plus any items the bridal party will need for any post-nuptial celebrations.
Whether you’re the bride-to-be or one of her trusted bridal party members, know that the details will make this day. Leave no stone unturned, and no specific item unaccounted for. There’s no such thing as too detailed on a day like this, especially if it might give the bride one extra reason to smile.
