I’m hosting my SIL’s wedding shower at my house in the coming months. She has 4 girls in her wedding-myself, her sister (my other SIL), and her 2 friends who I have never met. We have all communicated via email but we all live in different states so I haven’t met the other 2 ladies yet.
My question is, do you think I should offer to let the other 2 girls stay at my house for the weekend? I only have one guest room which I am sure my SIL’s will want to stay in. The other girls would have to stay at a hotel but I feel like that is weird? I don’t know. My house really isnt that big and after getting the house ready all weekend I feel like I am not going to want to enterain them at my house afterwards.
Am I rude?

No, I don’t think you would be rude. Even if you weren’t hosting it at your house, they would have flown in and needed hotel rooms anyway. The location of the party shouldn’t affect their accommodations. Especially if you don’t have the room and you don’t know them.

I don’t think it’s rude. You will have a lot on your plate. Maybe ask your SIL what she thinks? Maybe they can bring an air mattress?

Ya, I have an air mattress and we have a couple couches in the living room. But 6 (maybe 7) people staying in the house for the weekend, plus 1 bathroom, is just a lot. If it was all family i wouldnt mind but with strangers I feel like I’ll be worried about keeping the house clean, feeding them, etc. It’s just a lot.
My SIL will most likely ask if they can stay, because she is just like that. So I am trying to figure out how to politely say hell no!

@Bostongrl25: I think just saying that 6/7 girls plus one bathroom will deter her pretty quickly! I would suggest they all go to a hotel with 2 beds and have a slumber party! Tell them you will bring some bubbly over a and some movies and then you can leave before bedtime.
