Can I come to your wedding? That sounds so fun! In the end the people that love and care about you and your FI will be there, no matter what. I am having a DW and had the same fears in the beginning. We sent the invites out and then I watched as all the yes’s came in. Go for it!

@jdhall89:  That sounds like a great plan!  I can understand your worries about booking, but I think if you give everyone enough notice and heads up of your plans, you’ll have people make sure they are available for the weekend and participate in all the great things you have planned.

@jdhall89:  I don’t know why you’re scared.. this type of wedding sounds fun to me!! I love family reunions and a chance to just have fun all weekend long.. no responsibilities or anything. I think your guests will appreciate this weekend, and if they really don’t want to stay in a lodge they will stay in a hotel nearby. It’s nothing to get too worried about I don’t think!

It sounds great!  Every overnight wedding I’ve been to has been a hit!  Is there a minimum number of rooms you have to fill?  We had one house on our property for our guests & only told our bridal party.  We had more people want to stay than beds available.  We even had one person back out last minute & two drunk people took the spots!

 

It’s a little scarry to expect people to stay, but you’re taking a lot of the work from them, they’ll be happy to just stay put & not have to research other places to stay.

As long as there are options for people in different price ranges (like splitting rooms) it should be fine. And it sounds fun! If there are some guests who just CAN’T afford it at all, are you in a position to help them?
