It boggles my mind when I see how much resposnibility brides are assuming on behalf of their guests. I agree with you. I am an adult. I manage to make a reservation, rent a car, and reserve a hotel when I go on vacation. I can also do that when I am invited to a wedding .

I can use my GPS or google maps to find my way. Please don’t stress yourself out making a cutesy map unless you totally have nothing else to do. I appreciate the information on lodging you included, and I will use that to make my plans.

 See you at the wedding!

Im with you. As long as you give them the adress of the wedding venue and you suggested hotels, they should be able to figure the rest out themselves.

@An Alaskan Bride:LOL! We are totally going through this too. What are we? Convention planners? Even conventions won’t always book your hotel for you.

I’m worried about this one, too.

I’ve already asked my mom to use “word of mouth” to let the guests know that if they want any “travel agent” type advice, they need to call be by August. September and October will be TOO busy!

Do you have a friend you can designate?

Also, why would you make hotel reservations for anyone else?! Its not like Alaska is a foreign country.

My friends who just got married block several rooms at a nice, but reasonable, hotel in a fantastic location for their Out of Town guests. They really got a great deal considering the location of the hotel too. Unfortunately, they did have some guests who lagged on booking rooms and then were looking to my friends to find them a hotel. I told the couple to defer the people to me if they needed help because I thought the last thing I thought the bride and groom should be doing was making travel arrangements.
