On the morning of your wedding day, you will spend several hours getting ready for your ceremony and reception. It is super important that you have a designated place to spend these hours preparing and relaxing with your bridal party. Added bonus: A plethora of windows and natural lighting will score big points with your hair and makeup artists as well as your photographer! Here are four beautiful bridal suites around Memphis that our team and brides adore.
The Stratton House
Nestled beneath century-old magnolias, the Stratton House is located in the heart of the historic district. Built in 1859, the house is one of Collierville’s oldest and most historic homes. The home has three bedrooms + bridal room. The natural light and elegance of the home makes it a perfect place of comfort, beauty, and privacy for a bride to enjoy the morning of her wedding.
"It’s a very beautiful and cozy place to be in and I wanted something relaxing for the morning of our big day to put me at ease. It was very close to our venue so there was no feeling rushed to leave and get any where on time. "
It's true! We have had several brides rent an AirBnB as their bridal suite. It gives you the same privacy and luxury of your own home but typically with more rooms/space to accommodate your bridal party. Here’s a tip: pick a spot close to your ceremony location for short travel times between locations. Bethania Baray did just that and we are obsessed with the home she chose!
River Inn - Harbor Town
Overlooking the Mississippi River, River Inn gives you all the old south charm with a modern and intimate feel. The hotel is in the center of Harbor Town, with just a short walk to the river front. Danielle chose the Admiral Penthouse Suite that suited all her needs prior to her ceremony, but the hotel offers several suites.
River Inn was so pretty! We loved the views and all the space it provided.
409 South Main
A bridal suite we have often found ourselves swooning over is 409’s. The huge windows, spacious seating, and 6ft mirror are just some of the highlights. The large makeup counter is a selling point for a lot of brides and we couldn’t blame them. The suite doubles as the main women’s restroom, but there is an additional private room if needed.
The wedding day can be an emotional day, so it makes sense when a bride wants to be in the comfort of her home or the home of a family member. We can't blame her! If you choose to get ready in the home, make sure there is comfortable room for the bridal party + family. Melanie enjoyed her morning at home and it couldn't have been more perfect. The natural lighting in her photographs is so dreamy! Read more about Melanie's big day here.
