@lindseyl06:  You might get a free room if enough of your guests stay there, which would make it worth it to me. Just don’t let your guests know which room you’re staying in so your wedding night remains private. I don’t think you need a grand exit, but if you want you and your husband can make a grand exit and run out to get a snack or something before returning to your room.

I would stay at the same hotel.  We did and I enjoyed  that I got to spend extra time, after the reception, with the family and friends that were at the hotel and we all had breakfast the next morning in my suite.  We didn’t do a grand exit, but that wasn’t important to me at all.

You could do a cute elevator photo like this!

ACK! I love that elevator photo!!

The hotel I wanted was booked when I got around to calling, but I always thought it was a good idea to have your room in the same place as your party. That way, if you forget like some lip gloss or you need a pair of flip flops or something, you can always just send somebody up to get it!

Our reception is at a hotel too.. I’ll be honest, one of the bits I’m most excited about is having a quiet drink in the bar with the guests who are staying (tiny venue – only 8 rooms,) and talking about the day!
