I’m getting married in August and planning a few final things. I had booked a little B&B for the honeymoon, but when I went for my dress fitting the other day, I noticed a trunk show going on in this jewelry store. They were talking about some honeymoon giveaways, like lingerie and a 3-night stay at the Sofitel Hotel. I went ahead and registered. The package sounded AMAZING (better than my B&B plan) and I really want to win it. Would it be too much to ask my bridesmaids to register, too? I mean, if they win, they wouldn’t have to get me anything else for a wedding present! [content moderated to remove self-promo link]. I’m really curious to see what other brides-to-be think!

I think you can have a great time at both B&B’s and hotels – but your experience will be different for each so knowing what you want will probably determine how good each would be for you.
With a B&B, you will tend to get a smaller, more intimate experience – probably in a more residential area, with personal touches you’re unlikely to find in a hotel. If your hosts are good, you’ll have personal access to recommendations and suggestions about the surrounding area (I’ve even had a host decide to do laundry for me!)
With a hotel, you’re going to probably be in a more urban setting (though it depends), with fewer personal touches and quirks. You’ll probably have a more consistent experience, especially with a worldwide chain like Sofitel. If you’re going to an area that tends to be otherwise undeveloped compared to American standards, and creature comforts matter to you, a hotel can be a safe bet to be sure you’ll have things like a private bathroom, AC, etc.
Where are you thinking of going? What kind of experience would you prefer?

I don’t think it’s too much to ask your bridesmaids to enter a contest for you. A friend of mine made a similar request to win some vintage furniture for her wedding and I didn’t mind.
Either way you are sure to have a nice time!
