What is the purpose of a Bridal Suite?
There are a million decisions to make when planning a wedding and reception. What do we want to eat? Where are we going to get the decorations and flowers? What color of linens? One of the most overlooked luxuries in this time of decision making–does my venue have a Bridal Suite?
A Bridal Suite is a beautiful space where a bride can get fully prepared for pictures, walking down the aisle, and virtually eliminate the risk of running into the groom before the time is right. It is a place where words of generational wisdom can be shared from Mom, Grandma, Great Grandma, Aunts, or from Great Friends.
Your Bridal Suite acts as a quick get away from the party to touch up your makeup, use your private bathroom, adjust your clothes, or even just have a dedicated place of quiet before going back to your guests.
A Bridal Suite can also be a secured location for your precious wedding items. Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, family heirlooms, and even precious keepsakes from family, friends, and loved ones. It acts as a home based for the evening’s activities.
At Chateau d’Argy, our Bridal Suite boasts a beautiful pedestal and over sized mirror, a mannequin for your dress, vanities with mirrors for your hair and makeup needs, gorgeous antique furniture, a large private bathroom, and even a kitchenette and dining table for brunch and mimosas with your girls.
