Choosing The Perfect Wedding Prep Location

Choosing The Perfect Wedding Prep Location

Where you prep for your wedding is an important decision to make for your wedding day. Choosing the best location for your needs can set the tone for your entire day and help to create memories that will last a lifetime. There are many factors to consider when choosing your prep venue. To help you make the best decision, here are some aspects to consider when selecting your venue.


One important aspect of choosing your prep venue is where it is located in relation to your wedding and reception venues. You are going to want to choose a venue that is close to your wedding and reception locations, especially if they are in different areas. Things that can affect how long it takes to move between venues are traffic and weather. A great option when considering locations for your wedding/reception venue is if they offer a prep area on the grounds as well. This takes the guesswork out of it. Park Chateau offers suites on the grounds to primp and prep before your wedding. The suites are spacious enough for your entire wedding party and are equipped with everything you need.


What amenities the location has is just as important as the location. You want to make sure that you will have everything that you need when getting ready. This can include a private bathroom, plenty of mirrors, including a full-length mirror, seating areas, and plenty of counter space to be able to spread out. You will want a place to hang your dress, your wedding attendants’ clothes, a place to store coats, and places to store all the extras everyone will have for the day.


Your prep location should have enough lighting to allow you the best environment for hair and make-up. This will include bright lighting in the room and plenty of natural light as well. Your make-up can look different depending on the lighting that you are in. If you are under fluorescent lights, then your skin can take on a bluish or greenish tint. With lights that give off a yellowish glow, your skin can have a yellow tint. This is why it is good to have as much natural light as possible for make-up application. The lighting can make your hair give off different tints as well, but this will not affect the outcome if you are just getting an updo.


An important consideration for your prep area will be the size of it. If you are going to have your entire wedding party, everyone’s clothes, stylists, make-up artists, photographers, videographers, and all the extras, you are going to need the room to handle all of this and still be able to move around freely as well. The suites at Park Chateau are the perfect size to handle all of your needs on your wedding day. There are stations for hair and make-up, a private bathroom, and areas to relax and celebrate your upcoming nuptials.

The right location for your prep can set the tone for a great day! Keep these factors in mind when you are reviewing prep locations and you will choose a location that will allow you to have a memorable wedding day!
