Can you maybe request to be on a different floor or something?  When are you leaving for your honeymoon, the sunday following your wedding? 

Chances are after the wedding you will crash in your room.  Whenever you get up the next day you are going to be busy saying goodbye to all the Out of Town guests so privacy won’t really matter at that point.  Then I assume you will be leaving for your honeymoon.

Yea I wouldnt let it bother you. On your wedding night they better know enough to back off or else you have big problems!!

Do you normally get along with them?

Are they the type that will come knock on your door and intrude?

We were thinking about staying at the hotel where our guests were but I wasn’t too keen on the idea of *having fun* next door to family or one of our guests so we went home!!  It was for the best (but not because of the *fun* factor).

Is there a B&B in the town you could do instead?

Request a different floor!  And be happy that they used one of your blocked hotels.  Mine are staying at a hotel that they got a deal at instead of one of the blocks.  Not the biggest deal but just slightly irritating.

I think staying at the same hotel as your in laws on your wedding night should be fine, but I would keep your whereabouts relatively unknown! I went to a wedding where drunk groomsmen were banging on the bridal couple’s room door at 2am after the wedding as a supposed joke…uh no thank you!

I wouldn’t worry about it. Where we are having the wedding at there is only 50 rooms and all guests and us are staying there. I’m not concerned about it because the reception won’t end until 11:30 and by the time we say our good byes and such the night is gone and over with.  We plan to get up early the next day to drive home to pack and catch a flight for the honeymoon.

If they have an ounce of tactfulness in them they will leave you alone on your wedding night. This just seems like very basic etiquette to me. However, I could definitely see some in-laws I know “popping over to say hi”. So if they’re crazy intrusive (as in, you can think of several occasions where they’ve barged in on you and Fiance or otherwise invaded your privacy), I would stay in a different hotel. Explain your concerns to FI’s sister and let her make the choice of who she wants to stay with. However, in most other cases, I don’t think it should be a problem at all to stay in the same hotel.
