I have 5 bridesmaids – 3 of which I was in their weddings. They (or their parents) paid for my hotel room for their respective weddings. I’m trying to decide how I should handle this. My wedding is a different situation in that when they got married, we were much younger (college & right after graduation) & most were single still. The bridesmaids could share 1-2 rooms limiting the cost for the bride (or parents). Today, these ladies all have husbands & kids. Am I expected to pay for their hotel room for them & their family…in essence 5 rooms vs. 1-2? Would it be fair to pay for 1 night instead of 2? Also, 1 bridesmaid lives in town – do I cover a hotel room for her? Another Bridesmaid or Best Man is 45 minutes away – should I provide her a room too? Open to any comments or suggestions – please help!
