I need your help~~~(again)
I am having a very intimate wedding so we are going to pay for the guest accommodation for the night.
Since it’s a sorta destination/location wedding, we’ve booked several large cabins that can accommodate 4~12 people. Groom’s side will have 2 cabins and the bride’s side will also have 2 cabins. This way we can chat/have fun all night 🙂
I am not sure HOW to put this into the invitation!
Normally, invitations have these little cards or page that mentions about the accommodation and reservation. But since we”re paying for it. I want the guests to know that it’s all taken care of and don’t have to worry about it (unless they want to go somewhere else)
How should I word it to put it one of the pages of the Wedding invitation?

I loved that you asked this. I’m going to have the same issue. Our venue offer us to book the entire hotel included in package. Its an 1880s hotel, 14 rooms. I don’t mind offering those rooms to my guest for free. I’m only having a party of 50. But my Fiance want to charge them half the price of the room. lol. or theres or cheap, nice motel 5mins away for people that can’t spend so much on an over night stay. But I’m having a problem wording all this info as well. I told my Fiance, if anything, my Grandparents, parents and older relatives will get those rooms for free. The other issue is what if the guest I offer the rooms for free, don’t attend. So I want to make it clear that I need to know if they are attending, so if not, I can offer that room to someone else. I’m curious to see what advice other bees have. If I think of anything, I’ll post. lol 🙂

@NekoBride: I’d still do a separate accommodation card- you can list directions, and something like “Your accommodations for this wedding night are on us.” And include details on how they could extend the reservation for another night, or list alternate area accommodations.
@echolove: I would contact people individually-for 14 rooms, that’s maybe 7-10 calls.

@echolove: Oooh~~ sounds lovely! 😀 Most of my guests are flying in..so I didn’t want to have them spend more than the flight. Unless…they choose to stay a few more nights on their own.
Wording etiquette can be real hard.. Hope you figure it out well~! 😀

@rebwana: OMG~ THAT is so simple! And it works! 😀 I don’t know why I didn’t think of it! LOL I was wording it around in many ways and didn’t know how to say “Yo~ I’m paying so no worries” in an elegant way LOL
FOR THE RECORD~ I LOVE the beehive!!!! Such quick responses~~ Thank YOU!
