nearlymrshill:  We thought it was a waste to stay somewhere on our wedding night so we went home. We went to a nice hotel the next night and really enjoyed it.

nearlymrshill:  My Darling Husband and I stayed at a hotel for the two nights after our wedding.  We left for our honeymoon on a Monday and our home was going through a lot of remodeling.  It wasn’t a fancy hotel but it was a very nice one.  We really enjoyed it.

nearlymrshill:  We stayed at a hotel the night of our wedding, but you’re right: we got back to the hotel at about 1am, and had to check out by noon. Not worth it to stay in a hotel that you’ve been pining after. I say go when you can really make use of the amenities.

we had the same dilemma. so now we’re staying at a nice boutique hotel the night of the wedding, waking up and having the post wedding brunch and then after the brunch, we’re going to check in at the $500+ a night hotel. we want to take advantage of the pool, spa, have a great dinner etc so that made sense for us. then we’ll check out and go on our honeymoon!

nearlymrshill:  We spent our wedding night at the same hotel my husband’s family was staying at and where I had spent the night before our wedding with my MOHs. My MOHs and I had one of their standard rooms (which was still nice) the night before, and then booked their suite for our wedding night (which was amazing).

Our reception ended at midnight, so we were at the hotel around 12.30 am and checked out at midday. It was still worth it for us, as the suite was so amazing! That said, we were both more than happy to go home and sleep in our own bed the following night.

nearlymrshill:  We’re going home! lol We’re getting married at a mansion a few miles away from our house, and we’re leaving for the airport at around noon the next day. So there’s really no reason for us to spend the night in a hotel. That just means having a bag packed for the night of the wedding, only to have to come back to the house for last minute packing… Sounds like more of a headache than it’s worth.

We also aren’t made of money, and are paying for our honeymoon ourselves, so we’re spending our honeymoon funds on our actual honeymoon. Why waste $250 on a night we could be in the comfort of our own home?

nearlymrshill:  we stayed at the bridal suite at our venue, both the night of the wedding, and the night after. It was a huge waste of money TBH; it cost £270 ($405) per night, the wedding night we didn’t go to bed until 6.30am, and the following day we just stayed in bed for most of it feeling too hungover to move lol. In hindsight we wouldn’t have stayed the extra night.

if that’s the only night you’ll need a hotel, I say go somewhere cheaper. We spent our wedding night in a suite but only because I had stayed there the night before with Maid/Matron of Honor and the suite was mostly so we had space to get ready. Darling Husband and I didn’t get to enjoy it… although it was nice having the extra space because apparently you accumulate a lot of crap during the weekend!

Fiance and I are staying in the nicest hotel in the city for our wedding night, but don’t get too excited. It’s not like a $500/night kind of place but certainly far nicer than a Hampton or Comfort Suites. King sized bed, soaker tub, large room, etc. Considering we’re getting married in a small city close to our families, we don’t exactly have a lot of “fancy” options. Our reception will probably go until 9 PM, and then we’ll have to check out around 6 AM to get to the airport for our 7:45 flight, so we won’t get much time there. But hey, it’s our one-and-only wedding night, so the $150 was worth it in our opinion.

we’re doing a mini-moon in the same city we’re getting married in so we’ll be staying in a hotel. getting married on a thursday and i’ll be checking into the suite with my girls the night before (splitting the cost) getting ready in it with them that morning then they’ll continue to stay in the suite until whenever and my then hubby and i will check into one of the smaller rooms where we’ll stay that night and through sunday when we’ll check out.

nearlymrshill:  Honestly from what I hear, you’re going to be too tired to do anything after. If it wasn’t included in our wedding package, we wouldn’t have gotten a hotel.
