Originally, the SO and I were going to stay in our new travel trailer (that is going to be a wedding present – they are currently renovating it now) since we are taking it out for our honeymoon and going traveling in the trailer! However, I realized I wanted my wedding night to feel a little more luxurious and I knew I would want a long, hot bath the next morning. So, since my venue isn’t particularly close to home? I have started looking at where I want to stay on my wedding night. I have found this amazing hotel. They have a “treehouse” you can stay in…at the tune of $560+…probably not gonna happen but a girl can dream.
This is the treehouse I want to stay in: http://www.highlandhaven.com/the-treehouse/
But we’ll probably just get one of their luxury suites or cottages (and I’ll use it to get ready – for such pretty getting ready pictures).
Anyways, where are you and your man staying the night of your wedding? <br>
Feel free to share pictures or a link to the place where you’ll spend your first night as newleyweds!

@kateisstoned: We stayed at our house on our wedding night, but I love the Highland Haven! We stay there every year for our anniversary!

@kateisstoned: If you dont mind me asking, where are you getting married?
I got married at the Evergreen Lake House so I’m just curious since the place you linked is in Evergreen 🙂

We’re staying at the same hotel as some of our guests. They had a romance package where we get a bottle of champagne and breakfast in bed.

We were considering our house, but in the end went with one of the hotels that our guests are staying at. The reason? The staircase up to our bedroom is literally just under 2 feet wide with 10″ (as opposed to the standard 8″) steps and I can’t imagine trying to climb that in a wedding dress, likely not sober, after hours and hours of exhausting events. Seriously. And I’m not taking the dress off in the living room to crawl up the stairs, either. So, hotel it is!

A red eye flight that leaves at 1 am to San Juan, Puerto Rico, and from there the following night beginning our 7 day southern carribbean cruise! Excited for the honeymoon, the 2, four hour flights to get there, not so much! LOL

We will be staying in the presidential suite at a hotel locally. It’s not where our guests will be staying because my fiance is worried people will be bothering us to come out all night when he wants us to be alone.

We stayed at the hotel where our guest room block was (a Marriott). Our wedding wasn’t at that hotel though; it was at a church and reception hall.

We stayed at a different hotel for our guests. I liked not having to worry about seeing people right away the next morning. we relaxed and went to the pool then met our immediate families for dinner that night since my husband’s family was leaving to go back home the following day. It is an old,historic hotel in La Jolla (about 15 minutes for where we got married). I’ve been dropping not so subtle hints about going back for our anniversary this summer.

We really didn’t give it any special thought, and now I’m wondering if we should have??
We’ll be staying in an average hotel that I think is like 3 stars. There’s really nothing special or luxurious about it.

I answered “other” because I’m not sure the Queen Mary counts as a hotel per se. For those that don’t know, the Queen Mary is an old Cunard ocean liner that first launched in 1936. During WWII, it was transformed into “the largest and fastest troopship to sail” the Atlantic. Afterwards, it went back to being a luxury liner for another 20 years. Now it is permanently docked in Long Beach as a floating venue and historical icon. One of the first day trips we took was to tour the Queen Mary, and it holds a special place in our hearts. FI decided that he wanted to spend the wedding night in one of the staterooms, so that’s our plan.

Fancy smancy hotel in Melbourne. Ranked as one of the highest in the CBD. We booked a standard room and that was still more than we’d ever spend normally. But we will only get married once 😀
We don’t leave for our honeymoon till a couple of weeks later.

Man, we can’t decide. I kind of just want to spend it at home, but FI wants to go down to Seattle. We’re getting married like, 45 min – 1 hour north of Seattle, and live in between the venue and Seattle, so it seems silly to have to drive or be driven all that way. There are hotels near the venue, but nothing very special. I just think it’d be nice to have a night in my own bed before we go on our honeymoon!
