Have you been searching for the perfect getting ready space for your wedding day??

Check out these tips and recommendations for Ottawa’s pristine prep spaces for your wedding day.


Bridal prep photos have always had a small piece of my heart. I get so excited when my brides tell me about their beautiful getting ready locations. The brighter, the better!

There are so many hotels in Ottawa to choose between, but look for white, bright rooms with minimal artwork on the walls, flooded with natural light. Choosing a corner suite usually allows for additional windows, which creates an abundance of light! Make sure to have your bridal party tidy up the room before your photographer and videographer arrive so that the prep space is clean and clear from any distractions.

If you are able to get ready at your venue, that will make the day flow even more smoothly as you can have your stylists come to you allowing you to truly relax and soak in the day without traveling to multiple locations throughout the already busy wedding day.



A few of our favorite Ottawa venue prep spaces include:

The Farmhouse at Stonefields

The Garden House at Le Belvedere

The Naismith House at Evermore


Some of the most beautiful hotel prep spaces in Ottawa include:

Andaz Ottawa ByWard Market

The Westin Ottawa

Le Germain Hotel Ottawa

Fairmont Chateau Laurier

Brookstreet Hotel



Remember to consider any holidays or upcoming events in the Ottawa area on your wedding weekend to allow ample time to book accommodations and plan an appropriate travel schedule.
