My sister is getting married in January 2012. It's very early days and she has not yet booked a venue. However, I am looking at hotels to stay in the night before the wedding.
Ideally, I'd like a room where our mother, the bride (my sister) and the bridesmaid (me!) can all get ready together, and of course photos would be taken by the photographer. (It may even end up that she and I share the room the night before - and I would stay there the night of the wedding, also.)
I'm thinking we may need a suite of some kind in order to have enough space to all get ready together.
Is there any hotel you know of that would have a suite/room that would fulfil these requirements? I don't want to spend 4 figures per night, but am willing to be flexible up to $700 per night given it's such a special occasion.
She is considering venues around the Southbank end of the city, so if there are hotels around that area, that would be even better.
Thanks all! I don't know hotels in Melbourne at all so your help is appreciated.
