So, I got a GREAT deal on a Bed & Breakfast that is only 4 miles from our venue for the wedding night. It is a lovely, historical house that is now a B&B…..I was so excited about the deal that my mother and I purchased it without talking to my fiance first….
Apparently the idea of staying at a B&B “freaks him out”. He says it is like staying at someone elses house on your wedding night. Ugh.
Now that he says this it makes sense and I’M a little weirded out too! The only problem is we’ve already paid for it through LivingSocial and we can’t get a refund…. we could gift it to someone or just stay there another time but we’re not sure our budget will allow us to get another room at a hotel somewhere…
HELP! Is it REALLY weird to “sleep” at a bed & breakfast on your wedding night? Has anyone else done that? Would you reccomend “toughing it out” and staying there or getting a more private hotel room somewhere else?

Does you have your own private bathroom? We’ve stayed at bed and breakfasts a few times and we’ve never had an issue with privacy (we stayed at one both on the vacation which we got engaged on and on our honeymoon). Plus it’s nice to get up and have someone else make breakfast for you. I prefer bed and breakfasts as long as they seem to be well established and get good reviews anyway because I feel like they’re cleaner for some reason.

We went to one on our honeymoon, and it wasn’t bad at all! Not to overshare, but the bed wasn’t squeaky, so it’s not like they knew what was going on anyway :o). It felt more like a hotel room than someone’s home to me, but we were also on an addition instead of in the main house.

Yes, we have a private bathroom but there is like a room off of ours…. I am hoping they don’t book that room. I told them it was our wedding night and they seemed to be very accomidating and understanding.
They will actually bring us breakfast to our room, how sweet is that?! The deal I got on LivingSocial was for a whole romance package so we get champagne and chocolates.
They have amazing reviews online as well, here is a link;

FI & I went to a B&B on our first weekend away, maaaaaany years ago.
It felt a little wierd when.. uh… you know. We didn’t know how thin the walls were.
But we were fine with it, it really wasn’t that much different than a hotel. It might be awkward if you’re loud…
I will say, the food was way better than a hotel.

I think that is our main concern…. we don’t want to be paranoid that anyone will “hear” us or know what’s going on…. we just want to be able to enjoy it. lol.

I think it is fine. You told them it was your wedding night and they were excited about it, and I think they kind of expect people to “get good use” out of their room regardless of the reason they are staying there. I think it would be kind of fun.
ETA, I understand you are worried about people hearing you, but I have heard many a couple through walls at hotels. Be respectful, but don’t worry too much about it.

I stayed at a fancy B&B once, and it was like a really nice hotel, not like staying in someone’s guest room. The owners lived in a totally separate wing of the house.

I think it’s adorable! Totally go for it!
Will the owners be okay with you coming in at midnight though?

Our wedding is at 3:00pm, reception at 4:00pm and we’ll be out no later than 8:00pm, I already confirmed that the 8:00pm check in is fine. 🙂
I am feeling much better about it now…. Even excited!! It’d be so much easier to just stay there than try to find somewhere else 11 days before the wedding….. especially with the Ranger games clogging up all the hotels! lol.

We stayed at a B&B on our wedding night and loved it. We had this great room, our own bathroom, and little kitchenette with goodies for snacks and breakfast. They were nice and gave use a bottle of champagne too. We are going back for our one year anniversary. We loved it!

I love B&Bs! They just seem cozier and cleaner than hotels to me for some reason. I think we will probably be going the B&B route as well. Plus the food is SO good. I don’t think it feels like staying in someone else’s house, otherwise they wouldn’t be so successful! 🙂 You’ll have fun!

- Wedding: October 2011 - Bed & Breakfast
We stayed at a B&B on our wedding night with all of our family. Truth be told, after spending days running around on barely any sleep, we were too exhausted for any “festivities”. Three other friends who have also gotten married this year confirmend that we are not, in fact, weird. They all skipped the “festivities” on their wedding night in favor of catching up on much-needed sleep. No one tells you this, but being a bride is exhausting.

I think that is a great idea… Go for it

DH and I stayed at a B&B on our wedding night although it was a self-contained cottage. We originally booked it because all the accommodation in our town was booked up due to another event ebing held.
We really enjoyed having a whole house to wander around in and wind down after our reception, so I say go for it!
