    We didn’t rent a house, we rented a mansion so I guess it is similar. We provided EVERYTHING and did not ask or think of asking for our guests to provide for the experience.

    The guests that slept within the mansion the night before the wedding were close family (grandparents, siblings, aunts/uncles, nephews, parents etc) along with our bridal party and their significant others. In total we had 30 people stay over. We provided them dinner (rehearsal dinner), late night pizza party, overnight bags full of goodies, breakfast and then lunch before the wedding. There were sodas, water bottles and snacks provided throughout both days as well.

    We also provided a shuttle from the two local hotels we used for rooming blocks to the mansion so that none of our guests had to drive.

    I will say that it is an amazing experience. We all still talk about what a bonding experience it was and how much fun we had the night before running around, watching movies, playing games…it was a blast!
