    For the destination wedding I was in, my accomodations would have been paid for if I’d shared a room with the other ladies. However, I decided to drag FI (then BF) with me, and we paid for our room.

    Unless you’re having a DW, I’ve never heard of that being a “thing”!

    We paid for the wedding night hotel rooms, but we had a small wedding party (three rooms including ours). It was our gift to them. That being said I still voted NO because I don’t think you should have to.

    @Katepants:  Unless the rooms are an exorbitant amount of money (Like $300/night or more), I wouldn’t worry about paying for them!

    @Katepants:   Well, we are paying for our wedding party, which amounts to four rooms at a very costly hotel – and they are staying between three and four nights.    I don’t think it would be unreasonable to ask people to share a room.

    Nope, I don’t think so. I was a BM in my friend’s wedding, and her reception took place at a hotel. She let us know that we would get rooms at a discount if we told the hotel staff that we were in the wedding party but we paid for the rooms ourselves.

    I would never expect a bride and/or groom to pay for my room!

    Never heard of this.  I would give BP and immediate family first dibs on any reasonably priced reserved rooms.
