I’m going over the finer details of my wedding and I’ve hit a snag…I have a really big wedding party…like 7 people haha and I currently live in my parents tiny basement. So, the night before the wedding I want to have a sleepover with my bridal party but I can’t fit them all into the basement! I was looking at hotel rooms but I don’t think that two queen beds will be very comfortable for that many people…and two seperate hotel rooms ruins the fun of everyone being together.

@Tallulah_: Blow up mattresses? You can get some that are ridicuously comfy!

Suite? We had 3 girls/room with pull outs, it worked out fine, When I woke up at 7 am excited/nervous I didn’t want/need 6 people around me, I wanted my BFF who slept in the bed with me and woke up when I did.
ETA: everyone was in the “main” room by 9 am, but we appreciated a little extra space for sleeping. I didn’t feel like I missed out on anything.

sounds really fun! you could probably get 2 conjoined rooms at a hotel. or maybe one of our bridesmaids could host it.

@Tallulah_: Can you possibly get two adjoining rooms with a connecting door between the two? That way you can all hang out in one room together and then just part at bedtime.
Or, you could look for a holiday apartment to rent with 3 bedrooms and a couch/futon?

Thank you for the replies! I found a hotel in my city that has three suites but the absolute max amount of people is 6…maybe I’ll start by seeing if everyone would be interested in a night before sleepover. Two of my girls have babies so they may not want to leave them.
I have a question, how do you know if a hotel has conjoined rooms??

@Tallulah_: We fit 15 people in a hotel room before at a convention. It was 3 per bed, 2 in the chairs and 4 on the floor. I think 7 is definitely doable. 2 beds, a pullout couch and a cot. Simple.

I suggest you find out if anyone SNORES! One of my bridesmaids snorred like a bear and NONE of us got much sleep the night before the wedding. I would have preferred my own room if I had to do it over again!

@Tallulah_: Is there a bigger room at your parents’ place, e.g. you all sleep in the lounge or family room?
I like the freedom and convenience of my own house, and I’d do that if at all possible.

i was in a party this big before. The sleepover was hosted by a friend and we just had air mattresses all over the living room. It wasn’t so bad.

@Tallulah_: I’m pretty sure you can just ask them if they have any and if they are available. I know a couple of times I’ve stayed in hotels there was a door near the entrance door that was always locked (the connecting door), so they aren’t uncommon, as far as I’ve seen.

i would ask the hotel is they have a suite- our hotel we had the reception at gave us the bridal suite the night before and the night of the wedding( night before we paid their gift to us for using them was the wedding night for free) – you walked in there was a living room set up- couch they pulled out into bed and two chairs you could easily push to gether and make a bed with plus dinning room table that sat 4. once you passed that there were two queen beds in the sleeping quarters- i had 6 people sleeping comfortablly in the three beds.the night before-

definitely a suite. Or kick your parents into the basement for the night. They might be ok with that 🙂

sounds like a cute idea.
Just keep in mind, expecting your guets to pay to stay in a hotel the night before your wedding… then give ou a wedding gift, then possible stay over in a hotel after your wedding is a bit much.
Not many have that much cash to spend?
