- Wedding: August 2012
So fiance’s mom is arranging for us to have a night’s stay at a local fancy hotel, for free. She can get it for free because fiance’s dad is a lawyer for the hotel owner and they’ve offered many times to let us stay there for free. It’s a gorgeous hotel and the room will probably be very nice. It’ll be a great place for me to get ready, etc.
However…this hotel is one we had considered, then rejected when we were considering where to hold the wedding and reception. The hotel is an art hotel, and the aesthetic is very cold, hard, unwelcoming, white marble, modern art style that does not appeal to me (plus it didn’t really have an appropriate space for a reception anyway). I like old, romantic, traditional places, and this hotel is the opposite of that.
I was thinking of doing the first look there, but having first look photos there is unappealing to me. Fiance and I also discussed having the first look at another hotel, down the street. However, if we want to stay there, it’ll probably be about $300 a night. Eek.
I’d rather stay at the free hotel, but is it possible to go to another hotel and take pics? Will they kick us out?
