I’m paying for two BMs to stay with me the night before. The night of, they will each pay for their own room (one will stay with her BF, the other with her parents). I wish i could afford to do more, but unfortunately, I cant!

@naangel55 I agree! We are blocking off rooms in 3 different hotels (different prices/styles and one is the one where our reception is taking place) but since our wedding is far away (1hr in a car —3 hrs in a plane) from EVERYONE (even us!)

I know a lot of people do, but it depends on your budget. All of my Out of Town guests will be staying either with my parents, his parents and grand-parents, or my aunt. They all have large houses, so there’s plenty of room.

Yeah, I’ve heard of this, but don’t know how implimented it is. jsut something else for brides to feel guilty over, I suppose. If you can afford it, why not? ut if you can’t don’t sweat it.

So I’ve been a Bridesmaid or Best Man in three destination weddings and always paid my own way. BUT when my sister got married (DW) she insisted on paying for all of the bridesmaids and groomsmen’s rooms. I think she felt like she was in a better position to pay for it than they were. I feel like if the bride and groom or parents (whoever is paying) CAN comfortably afford it, then they should. If it’s a struggle, then they by no means should have to. I don’t think it’s expected, just nice.
For what’s it’s worth…

Not at all. We certainly are not paying for the out of town guests in the wedding party. I am paying for all of the bridesmaid dresses (which are floor length Priscilla of Boston, so they are pretty pricey) and all of their jewelry to offset the costs though.
