@amariem25: Do you know anyone else such as the maid of honor or another family member? If not then I would go ahead and ask the bride. I think its OK if its in regards to whether you should make a hotel reservation.

Do you know the MOH? Or the bride’s parents? I think it is a perfectly acceptable question to ask considering the distance.. I would want to know as well! But in general I like to avoid talking to the bride on the week of the wedding 🙂 As a last resort I think it would be okay, but I imagine there is someone else involved in the planning that you could ask?

@lefeymw- jinx, you owe me a coke!

I would contact the bride. If someone else answers the phone, let them know that you don’t want to bother her and maybe they can answer your questions. I am sure that any person that answers the phone will be happy to help you.

I would go ahead and ask. Hotel reservations are a perfectly good reason to inquire about the length of the reception.

I would ask how the reception is supposed to run becaue I may want to get a hotel room. If the bride knows you she will know that you are travelings and may want to get a hotel room.

I dont see why it would be a problem to ask the Bride herself! =) Why not go straight to the source, that way its a solid answer!

Yea, I would just call her. It shouldn’t be a big deal. It’s not the day before or the day of. So she’s prbably fine. Actually, she has probably been stressed the whole time—so no change there. All she can do is not answer or be short with you (not fun but still).

If you don’t find an answer, I would just plan to leave early from the reception and go home. I’ve left early before and nobody was offended… especially if you’re from out of town.

Just go ahead and call her!!!  Why would that be a question that would annoy/upset her?  I’m sure she’s already been answering this question anyway 🙂

Can I also throw in here that if you don’t get an answer and the wedding is in a city, it shouldn’t be hard to find a few cheap places beforehand just in case. You can have their addresses/phone numbers and have them mapped and ready the night of. 🙂

@linguo42: Agreed.  I would have no problem with someone calling me about that.
