Getting ready with your besties the morning of your wedding is when it all feels so surreal! All of the “it’s finally happening!” and “you’re the prettiest bride ever!” and joy just happens in those moments.
The @bleckleyinn is a perfect place for these moments to happen! With plenty of space to spread out and gorgeous balcony windows for natural light, you can’t go wrong with getting ready at The Bleckley Inn. Our final stop in our Destination Downtown series is the Bridal Suite at the Bleckley and we are excited to share it with you.
Not only does the bridal suite have plenty of natural light for your wedding day, but it also features a dining table (that comfortably seats 6 – perfect for hair and make-up) but also a kitchenette with a full size fridge. One of the most important things to do on your wedding day is to make sure you eat a good bit of protein and food before walking down the aisle. We highly recommend a Graze and Taste Charcuterie Board, Chick-fil-a nuggets or PubSubs and you’ve got all the room you need for a food spread in the bridal suite. You can chill your mimosa ingredients the night before as you get access to the bridal suite for your entire wedding weekend!
pro tip: If you’re planning on spending the night there after your wedding, make sure everyone clears their stuff out before the ceremony.

Getting Ready on Your Wedding Day
Wedding Day Hair & Make-Up Tips
One of our favorite hair/make-up artists, Katey Akins, suggests having clean, dry hair and a clean, make-up free face. She says it is okay to go through your normal skincare routine, but to make sure it doesn’t contain sunscreen. For years we heard to come with “day old” hair, so we highly recommend checking with your wedding day stylist to see what they prefer. Some of it will also be dependent on your hair type and what style you’re going for on your wedding day. We cannot recommend enough to have a trial with both your hair and make-up artists prior to your wedding day.
