    @AllieBee12:  I’m sorry it’s all so stressful for you! I can’t offer too much help except to say that it’s okay- really it is, to say no. To those people that are asking you to book them tickets to things totally unrelated to your wedding- just say no. Bring up the honeymoon card & then they’ll apologize (hopefully) for being so helpless. Also, hotels in SF are expensive no way around it. The city is also ridden with bedbugs so a cheaper hotel might look good at first but probably not in the AM! We had the same issue for a while, people thought we just picked a hotel & didn’t understand the sheer mountains of research we did first. Have you looked into the Joie de Vivre hotel group yet? Their hotels are really nice & posh and some can be vastly discounted (hotel Kabuki is sometimes under $200/night). Another thing for your guests to keep in mind is that almost no hotel has parking for free, most are upwards of $30 per day, so once you factor that in to a cheaper room you’re still looking at $200/night… I think that’s very reasonable for San Fran but we do get complaints when ppl visit from out of town- it’s a big popular tourist city, nothing you can do so just ignore those comments!
