We are having our wedding in our hometown, but leaving the airport at 7:30 the next day for our honeymoon. The airport is 1.5 hours away from the wedding site. Were thinking of either crashing at a best western which is lame but the best we can do for the price, or one of us not drink at the wedding and driving us home that night to our home that is ~20 min from the airport. The sucky thing is I know were both gonna want to drink at our wedding and I super wanna go out and have an after party after the wedding. What to do, what to do….

Best western for sure! It’s affordable and ensures you and the hubby will have a good wedding night!

Nothing wrong with the Best Western! If it’s clean and has a bed for you to sleep on, good enough!

Ok thanks guys!! Best Western it is 🙂

Use it for what it is; the Best Western will allow you both to enjoy your wedding, which is sort of the point of the honeymoon, right? 🙂 There’s nothing wrong with it. Plus it’s always nice to sleep somewhere else, in my opinion, so you don’t come home to the normal every-day bs too soon.

I love Best Western and have always had a good experience there!

I’ve always had great experiences at Best Westerns! You’ll have a great time and won’t have to worry about driving or one of you not enjoying themselves.

Best Western for sure! We’re in the same boat as you guys and that’s what were planning on doing. It’s only for a few hours that night anyway, definitely worth it.

Best Western! And tell them you’ll be newly weds. 🙂

I think you’ll be focused on other things besides the room decor on your wedding night!!!!

We stayed at the Hampton Inn on our wedding night, there’s nothing wrong with a budget hotel since the important thing is you guys enjoying each other, and preparing for your wonderful honeymoon!

We’re staying at a Best Western, too! I feel a little silly about it (I mean, one of my besties stayed at the Taj the night after her wedding…) but it’s right near our venue and the cost is included with our venue contract (they’re owned by the same people; our venue is an historic mansion down the road from some hotels, one of which is the Best Western).
I think it’ll be awesome, and you’ll be glad you did! You’ll be exhausted from all the partying and being happy, anyhow.

I’d go for the Best Western! Our situation is similar to yours because we’re not leaving until the following day also, and since we’re heading to a nice resort for our honeymoon & won’t get back to the room until late that night, I don’t see any reason to pay top dollar. If it makes you feel any better, we’re considering the Holiday Inn!

We just stayed at a hotel with the rest of our guests – no fancy room or anything. We spent less than 8 hours in the room so we weren’t gonna splurge on it!
