I know this reply is redundant because everyone else is saying the same thing, but HECK NO! The honeymoon suite is to treat yourselves. Especially since you’re paying.

So you’ve heard it already: absolutely not. And like others have said: most other guests who would be asked to stay there would probably rather stay in a two person room with their partner/family.

Also, if I was one of these guests who was supposed to stay in the honeymoon suite with your mother, I’d be SO uncomfortable! I would really feel like I was taking away something that was meant for the happy couple.

We’re having a destination wedding in Hawaii and my parents are helping a lot with the wedding, but my fiance and I are still getting the junior suite that comes with our package. Not only is it OUR wedding, but logistically it would be a nightmare any other way. We need the space to put together welcome bags, for me getting ready on the day of, to handle people coming in and out, holding any extra wedding stuff, etc. You probably need that space more than you realize right now.

kristin36890 :  If you are paying for the wedding package, then no.

If she’s paying, then it’s her call.

kristin36890 :  Absolutely not. You are paying for it, and you are the couple that is getting married. You deserve the honeymoon suite.

The fact that your Maid/Matron of Honor suggested that you should give the honeymoon suite to her&co is ridiculous and something that she should feel bad about. You are being very generous to pay for accomodations for your BMs, and she wants to take advantage of it so that she can get the honeymoon suite? Thanks, but no thanks.

Do not give in to this madness.

“thanks but no thanks” is a perfectly good response to that suggestion.

Your friend is both selfish and cray cray. You keep the honeymoon suite for yourself.

Yeah….. no. I am kind of appalled she even suggested that. 

The only reason I can think of that it can sleep so many people is for the night before the wedding…. lots of couples do still spend that night apart and in that case the bride could use the suite with her bridesmaids the night before.

I’m pretty sure that if you had a poll, 100% of people would say to keep the Honeymoon Suite. It’s yours.

This is NOT one to compromise on.  Plus be sure and have housekeeping come in after you girls head to the ceremony and before you and fh get back.

kristin36890 :  What kind of weirdo wants to stay in a honeymoon suite with her own brother?  Hey, let me go party it up in the jacuzzi with my brother.  Yeah, no.  GTFO, Maid/Matron of Honor.
