- Wedding: May 2013
Hello! So just planning our wedding and everything is going great! we are having our reception in norcal, but the majority of family members, including my bridesmaids, live in Socal or in the Bay area. 2 of my bridesmaids, which are my sisters, are staying with me, but of course it includes their humongo family. so that 11 ppl already in my house not including my parents and sis and us, which is 16 people! my other sister who is another bridesmaid will stay at a hotel. so Im left with two out of town bridesmaids. Now, this is a bit of my fault bc I have always tried to make it easy on them for everything, but this time I really need them to be considerate and understand my situation. While I understand that it can be expensive or that I dont want to impose more expenses on them, I just cant have everyone stay at my house. I already feel overwhelmed with the 14 people who are staying at my house. :/
One of my bridesmaids, who lives in the bay, I feel may even give me the “i cant believe shes making me get a hotel’ feeling. I dont know, If I had it, I would get their hotel but we are really on a tight budget.
Also, am I responsible to make sure I cater to them and make sure they are picked up looked after when they are in town? I just feel im going to be so busy that I dont have time to make sure of all there accommodations when they come up here. I usually do, like pick them up take them out for dinner, go to the movies but thats when they come visit me. this is just a different situation. This will be during a weekend that is considered a long weekend, July 6th. I dont need anyone to be there until thre 5th, but some of them are coming on July 3rd. I plan to have a huge bbq and all, but thats really it. I dont have time to have one on ones with particularly my bridesmaids who are my best friends.
Any advice as to how to handle this?
