    I would!  We love camping almost as much as we like free stuff!

    It really depends how far out the cabins are, I guess, but I wouldn’t be thrilled about not having a private room.

    I would, but older people, folks with kids, people who work weekends or have lots of weekend activities, people who are high maintenance, or some people who just don’t like camping wouldn’t. I’d expect a handful of people to do it, but the majority not to. Souds fun though!

    @jessicadarling:  Depends on how close I was to you, if I had kids, how formal I was planning on dressing for the wedding, what weekend it was. If you were just a friend I probably wouldn’t. Probably no if I had kids. If you were family and my SO could be there, I’d think about it.  

    And I love camping

    I like camping, so I would.  But anyone who doesn’t like camping won’t stay.  So it really just depends on your guests.

    Just as long as you aren’t expecting people to dress up real nice for your wedding I think it’s fine as long as you have hotels nearby people can choose instead.

    Hmm I’m not sure. Are people going to be staying the night before the wedding as well? If so, I probably would because I wouldn’t want to try to get ready for a wedding in a shared bathroom or a tent. 

    I would probably stay the night of the wedding *if* I knew the people I was staying with.

    @jessicadarling:  It would really depend on how far out it is but most likely no. I wouldn’t be thrilled about sharing a cabin, so unless my DH wasn’t able to attend and I was going with a group of girlfriends I probably wouldn’t stay. Even with cots or mattresses provided, I’d still need to be packing my own sheets, blankets, pillows, towels, etc. That A LOT of work to attend a wedding. Plus, when I travel I don’t want to feel like I need to pack up my whole house, or worry about sharing the space I’m getting ready, or wearing shoes in the shower. 😉 If the venue is really far out, I guess I’d stay if it was between that or driving over an hour to a hotel.

    @jessicadarling:  Tough call. I went to summer camp in the Adirondacks as a kid and loved it. Then again, I didn’t mind sleeping in cots and sleeping bags and smelling like bug spray/camp fire for weeks at a time.

    It would depend on the weather, the crowd and so forth. In my current state of mind, if there was a Hilton nearby, I’d opt for that. No trudging around from my tent to the spidery toilet in the middle of the night. Yucky stuff to me.

    We thought about doing the exact same thing, but my DH’s family is a little on the posh side and would never have stayed.

    Me however?! Count me in! I love camping!

    Absolutely not.  I hate camping and would not stay in a tent, and I would not want to share a cabin with multiple other people.

    It’s possible that I would but I doubt FI would. The lack of privacy and the likely uncomfortable beds would probably be dealbreakers.

    Honestly no… I just like my own bed & am not comfortable sharing a room with others.

    @jessicadarling:  I voted yes based on the cabins.  Tents (for me) are a no-go.  If the cabins have indoor plumbing/bathrooms and if I was bunking with friends or other couples we’re friendly with then sure!  That sounds super fun.
