I think this sounds like a really fun idea, and a great way to save your bridesmaids a good amount of money! I would loooooooove to stay in a beach cottage.

You don’t mention it in your post, but would there be room for their significant others/guests for them in the cottage? Just looking out for potential problems. But, I really think it is a fun idea.

I used to live in Palm Harbor! Having been in that area for a little while I think it is an AWESOME idea and would be very thankful for that gesture if I were one of your bridesmaids. Just a thought though, will there be a Groomsmen house as well? The guys might feel a little less appreciated if only the girls are given free housing for the week. Congratulations and good luck!

Since it seems to work out logistically I say go for it!

Aw, I think that is a fantastic idea!  Do your bridesmaids all know each other?  If so, it might be cute to leave a "welcome basket" with a note, some little bottles of alcohol, and some snacks for them.

Great idea, and we are getting hitched that same weekend!  On the 30th.  Everyone that is coming is basically from out of town as well.  Good luck!

wow, that sounds like a perfect idea.  i’m getting married at my parents house in northern michigan and it will be a destination for probably 95% of our guests (and all our wedding party) so i am looking into finding houses, cottages, condos to rent for my bridal party.  That’s such a great gift for all your bms!!

i think it’s a great idea!  when i was originally having a destination wedding in captiva, fl this is what we were doing for our wedding party.  we were renting a 6 bedroom house and  had the bridal party stay there for as long as they wanted while we were on our honeymoon doing other things.  but unfortunately, my Fiance decided to go to grad school at the last minute, which made us cancel our destination wedding.  but all the bridesmaid were just thrilled by the idea. all of the bridesmaids were actually pretty bummed when i had to call them and change the plans…

Sounds like a great idea! Maybe you could still give them some physical token of your appreciation, too (I like the welcome bag/basket idea), but I think it’s a great idea!

Absolutely! Some R&R in a vacation beach house is the best gift in the world, in my opinion. And like the posters above suggested, maybe a small welcome bag (like no more than $5-20 each considering the beach house itself will be pricey).
