- Wedding: October 2012
It seems as though I’m finally hitting my road blocks/problems as of late. I feel like I’ve been posting every other day. I have a new issue at hand, and I appologize if this runs a bit long.
I am geting married in a quant little town where there really arent many Hotels. The only one IN the town is fully booked because there is another wedding being held the same day and they beat me to it. *damn* Hotels outside of the town are running at around $120 a night. So, my brain process for my bridesmaids and I were to rent out a really cute 3 bedroom B&B for $150 a person for two nights IN the same town. No driving even required and breakfast included. The place is also gorgeous for photo ops while we get ready, as our venue does not give us enough time to get ready THERE. AND we have the entire house to ourselves.
Apparently, one of my bridesmaids decided to take it under her wing, without informing me, and started inquiring about places to stay. But not just for the bridesmaids. Also included staying at this ONE place would be the groomsmen and some of our out of town friends. However, not my fiance or I. She found a home for rent that sleeps 16 people for about $70 dollars a person for 2 nights. When I approached her about this, it seemed as though she didnt understand why I wanted my bridesmaids and I to stay in one location, ALONE, the night before the wedding. Reasons being: 1. Friday before the wedding should be super low key for those in the party. 2. We need a place to get ready the next day and heading to this 16 person frat house to get my makeup done while my college guy friends are pounding beers in the backyard just doesnt seem appropriate 3. I personally feel it should be a girls night. Saturday night is a different story and others can do whatever they want. 4. Groomsmen and Bridesmaids, IMO, shouldnt intermingle until the day of 5. Way to leave me out!
I then told her that she can do whatever she pleases the Saturday night after the wedding, as I have found a replacement for her and I (since ill be staying with my new hubby elsewhere) at this B&B for Staurday night, but I would prefer she stay with us girls at this cute B&B for one night for $75 dollars on Friday. She comaplined, slightly, about it being too much money and she didnt feel it was worth it when she could stay someplace else with 15 other people for cheaper. Soon, one other bridesmaid chimed in also, unsure if $75 dollars would be too much for one night also.
I’m annoyed. Thankfully my other 3 bridesmaids are on my side and will be staying that Saturday night at the same B&B with their SO’s since I will not be there and, apparently, my two other bridesmaids will not be either.
What is typical in a situation like this? Where do people stay the night before the wedding?
