i just put the hotel we had negotiated a discount at.
But a bride on here had a great idea of just putting a search engine accomodation finder.So it was like to find out about accomodation in our area go to http://www.whereis.com or something. It just depends if you want to include it. Most people only do it if they negotiated a rate 🙂

ugh! so i just talked with my FMIL and she is like yeah YOU need to get a negotiated rate and then make a map from that hotel to the place! UGH! i already made a mp (acutallly my BFF Marci did for me :D) and i already printed them and cut and put in the invites! ugh! she said “well looks like you are going to have to redo them”! UGH! evil…..
what makes me so mad is that it is only FI side of family who MIGHT be staying in a hotel. they live 2 hours away..my family lives an hour. i am pretty sure i am being selfish here but i am just frustrated. we just bought a new house, i work like 60 hours and week and planning my wedding on my own plus DIY project to save money. it is so frustrating! i dont have the time to redo all my maps! i guess i am a little stressed today 😀 i was hoping to finish and send all invites today! because weekends are my only opportunity..week days are impossible for me to get things done. i tried to call hotels but no managers that deal with this are there on sundays.

If you have a wedding website I would put that information on there. Just to help you out with the whole hotel negotiation thing & also the map. If you don’t have one I know mywedding.com lets you customize the pages on your website. So you could include this on there.

Here is a little tip. On the back of the response card, number them in light pencil (small in the corner). Mark on your list which guest recieved which number.
When they start coming back – IN CASE THEY DID NOT WRITE THEIR NAME – you can use the number to identify who they are!
