- Wedding: September 2012
We are planning on having a weekend wedding event at a national park lodge about an hour and a half away from SO’s hometown. We are hoping everyone comes in on Friday, we would be paying for everyone to tour the caves across from the hotel where we’re staying that night then have a mobile pizza place up for a dinner (at our expense) and a bonfire behind the hotel. Saturday would be the wedding day, it will be at dusk on a footbridge about a 10 minute drive from the hotel and then the reception back at the hotel where of course we would be paying for dinner and such. Everyone would stay another night and head out Sunday morning. So that leaves guests to purchase their own breakfasts and lunches from the hotel cafe (hotel is up a mountain away from the town so it’s really their only option) and be in charge of their own room expense (rooms range from $80-$160).
I don’t think thats an unreasonable amount for guests to be responsible for, is it???
I think the only thing that makes me feel like maybe people won’t come or will feel put out is because we are not leaving them any other options. There aren’t other food choices close by and wedding guests need to be staying at the hotel (with few exceptions), considering the location and how many we have room for.
Does that seem reasonable? Would you go to a wedding if that was the case?
