No, you’re not horrible. In fact, I think it would be much more stress free if you just keep it as intended, and the other people can find their own accomodations. You ARE paying for it, just not directly.

There’s a time for charity, and there’s a time to say “F- that, I’m the bride.” 

We’re having a wedding at an old hotel and the bridal suite is a massive penthouse with a balcony. My parents, who are hosting the afterparty, have a good sized suite, but nothing quite like the multi-roomed extravagance my fiance and I will enjoy on our wedding night. It has occured to me to give them the bigger room and be able to host a few more people comfortably, but…..nah. My feelings have been confirmed by the few people I’ve mentioned it to. Anyone who found themselves in the honeymoon suite on YOUR wedding night will wind up saying “Wait…but why didn’t they take this room?” and feeling guilty.

kristin36890 :  No you are not horrible. Guests can figure out their own accomodation from the list you provide. Also who is gonna stay with 6 people together? Even for our wedding I suggested people share rooms to cut costs for themselves and no one is doing that cause their adults and want their own rooms with their SO. Only some single friends are sharing.

Also how would you even make sure that the guests are not in there while you get ready… wouldn’t they need to get ready themselves too.

Overall this sounds like it would be a logistical nightmare day of wedding and the honeymoon suite is meant for newlyweds, enjoy it you get it once.

Nope. Guests can figure out thier own accommodation. Use the honeymoon suite and don’t feel guilty about it for a second.

I actually like the idea, if it werent for you getting ready there. Since you’re getting ready there, you don’t want peoples shit lying around, having suitcases/clothing/shoes/etc cluttering around plus the inconvienece to the guests for having to kick them out of their own room would be terrible. I’d say ‘thanks but no thanks’.

No way!!! It is called the honeymoon suite for a reason.  I would feel SO awkward if I was a guest at a wedding and was in the honeymoon suite while the couple isn’t allowed to be.  So awkward.  Take it for you guys getting ready and your night!!!

You should totally use the honeymoon suite for yourselves! I can’t believe she suggested otherwise. You’re not being selfish at all. 

Plus – What a pain in the butt it would be to kick 6 guests out of their hotel room for a whole morning so you could get ready.

Absolutely not! Do not give up the suite. I can’t believe she suggested that.

I would be telling anyone who suggested that to suck it. Our suite costs $2000 more per night than the entry level room and it holds max 4 so yours must be INCREDIBLE! I wouldnt give that up for anyone, it’s your party. It’s once-in-a-lifetime, use it!

kristin36890 :  Ha! So basically she wants to party in a jacuzzi during your wedding weekend while you and your new husband have just a regular room? Hahahahahaha! No.

kristin36890 :  She seriously suggested it for herself? Holy shit, that’s incredibly selfish of her! Yeah, do not feel bad at all. I’m appalled your Maid/Matron of Honor tried to get you to give her the honeymoon suite.

kristin36890 :  i really don’t get this – is she suggesting this so that she can geta FREE suite?!? id on’t see how it “would be better” to put 6 people in there. personally, as a guest, i prefer to have my own room with Fiance and not have to share a room with other people.
