Is there no way one of the family members can stay in a hotel to make room? I feel like as bridesmaides they should get preferance for accomodation seeing as they’re in the bridal party.. I’d be a bit annoyed if I flew from interstate to be someones bridesmaide and was left high and dry for accomodation!

In terms of holding their hand and looking after them the whole weekend though no I don’t think that should be expected of you! It’s your weekend, they’re grown ups and they’ll be fine!

I’ve been a bmaid at out of town and out of country weddings many times. I would NEVER expect the bride and groom to put me up. They have way too much going on already without hosting house guests! Seriously introduce your friends to airbnb.com. They can split am apartment for the weekend and it will be cheaper than a hotel.

I would not expect you to put me up. In fact, I’d get your family out too!!! Way too much stress! They can stay in hotels. I was in my little condo alone the night before the wedding and it was awesome.

I wouldn’t expect to be put up! I’ve never heard of the bride and groom being expected to provide accomodations for their party (but I have read of people who chose to as a nice gesture). However, you should do what you can to make sure they know their way around, as out-of-towners. Recommend a car rental place or a shuttle from the airport, or maybe have a local friend that can drive them around. Provide driving directions to all of the destinations they need to go to.
