here is my opinion becaise i’ve been to a wedding that was at a hotel recently and one that wasn’t and mine isn’t either.

I LOVED that my friends wedding was at a hotel! it meant neither me or my Fiance had to be a designated driver. we could drink until the very end take an elevator to our room and crash. It was WONDERFUL! That being said we also had to travel for this wedding. It was 6 hours away from home. If my friend had her wedding at a hotel close to where we live i wouldn’t have stayed at the hotel. It doesn’t make sense for us to pay for a hotel room for the night if we can just drive home. You know what i mean? So if you’re having a lot of family and friends traveling from out of state or far away that will need a hotel anyway why not do it at the hotel? if you’re having your wedding locally chances are people aren’t going to stay at the hotel. We aren’t having our wedding at a hotel because the majority of our guests are local and we prefered the catering hall even though it was more expensive. Also, take into account that you might be REALLY tired after your big day! You might just want to go back to your hotel room with your husband and relax uninterupted. That’s what we’re doing. We want a little alone time after the wedding

lanvin19:  i wanted to party all night but after thinking about it i was like there is no way i am going to party all night. I will be up early at about 8 and party ends at midnight. 

So here is maybe something you can do. Find a hotel near the country club and provide shuttle for after the reception for those who want to drink. I am not sure what the hotel offers up for transportation or what a shuttle will run for about an hour but i am sure it will be less than the 7k.

I agree with PP, do the country club and use some of the leftover 7K to hire a shuttle to a local hotel. You’ll still have plenty leftover to use towards your vendors.
