Side note if I was invited to a wedding I would just get my own room instead of choosing this. I wouldn’t care that it was a discount bc I don’t want to share a room with four other people even as a guest.

From a guest perspective, sharing a suite (that I’m going to get kicked out of anyway) with 5 other people sounds kind of awful TBH. It’s not like they’d get to enjoy the roominess or romantic vibe of the suite if there are 6 people smooshed into it.

It’s possible that her real purpose is to hint that the couple is supposed to cover or provide accomodations for wedding party members. Which, in fact, they are. 

But no, you don’t have to give up the honeymoon suite.

NO WAY! Your Maid/Matron of Honor sounds really selfish, I would never give up my suite on my wedding night, that’s ridiculous !!

kristin36890 : Now that I have your backstory, she did that so she could have fun in your suite on your honeymoon wedding.  No, keep it for yourself!!!!!!!!

kristin36890 :  If so, then she clearly wasn’t somehow trying to help you figure out a way to save money. She has quite the nerve. Feel free to ignore her.

Um. The only logical response to your update is to demote this woman who puts her partying ahead of YOUR wedding. What a b*.

weddingmaven :  I’ve never been in a wedding, nor has my husband where we have received free accommodations. We are flying to his brother’s wedding, which my husband is in, and spending $1000 on accommodations they chose. Is it really a thing to pay for this as the bride and groom??

It’s pretty stupid that something called the “honeymoon” suite can hold more than 2 guests!  I don’t care how big it is…it shouldn’t have any other beds in it!

OP you should keep the suite.  We are providing rooms to our best man and maid of honor, but that’s out of our pocket because we want to, we were not expected to do so.

weddingmaven :  Really? I’ve been a Bridesmaid or Best Man 4 times, had to get a hotel for each one and always paid for everything all by myself. It would never even occur to me that the bride and groom were supposed to pay for that…

llevinso :   whitums :  Yes, it  really is the proper thing to provide or pay for bridal party accomodations according to both new and traditional etiquette! You are right that many people ignore or are unaware though.
