You are being very generous in paying for two nights of her stay that you need her there.  If she wants to come up earlier to enjoy the venue or sightsee that should be on her own dime.  However, if she will actually be helping you out for those two days and it’s okay with your parents, I would offer her the room in their suite for the two additional days.

@Sea_Ashley:  I wouldn’t pay for the additional two days. You’re already being so generous paying for the two nights she is actually needed. It seems like you are not requiring her to be there the days before so it’s her choice at that point.

@Sea_Ashley:  I would tell her that you wouldn’t be able to afford those two extra nights, but in the meantime your parents have an accomodation she can use.

She might not be thinking that there is an extra cost with her staying two more nights. Some people tend to forget those things when it isn’t coming out of their pockets. In addition, I would discuss it with your parents so there isn’t any awkwardness. Hope that helps 🙂
