We are planning on booking our hotel room at the same hotel as the block is booked.

Well my first instinct would have been to book in a separate hotel.
We were, however in the same hotel as our guests, but separate from them. We joined people for dinner the day after and it was fun to spend that time with them before they really left and we could enjoy our honeymoon..

If you saw what I look like when I wake up you woudn’t want me in the same hotel as you.  I am DEFINITELY staying in a different hotel than my block.  I do not want to wake up on my wedding day (or the day after) and see my guests at breakfast!

A friend of mine booked their wedding night hotel at the same hotel that most of their guests were staying at. We were all outside the hotel drinking and chatting and literally saw them walk in and check in. She later said that she wished she would of stayed somewhere else b/c seeing all of us kinda ruined their private romantic moment. Plus several of the grooms friends wanted to run by their room and bang on their door & just mess with them….

For our wedding night I found a great room at a bed & breakfast, very private. In fact we didn’t even “check in” b/c they left the door unlocked for us, so we saw nobody. The room had a fireplace and a private deck with a spa! So needless to say I was very happy with our choice!

We stayed in a different hotel than the rest of our party!!  It just seemed weird to stay in the same place my parents and family were staying on our wedding nite!!

@VirginiaMarie – – you crack me up!  Every single one of your posts makes me laugh or brings a smile to my face – – I love having you around…You’re marrying before me so you better stay here after your married, haahaahaa

FH and I are staying at the same hotel as all of our guests.  Well we have blocked rooms at 3 hotels and we’re staying at our ‘preferred’ hotel….

We’re staying in the hotel block the night before the wedding, but switching to a different hotel for the wedding night…privacy, please!

We are definitely staying in a different hotel than our guests.  We are expecting that our wedding reception will eventually lead into an after-party but we want to be able to leave when we want and start the romantic, unwinding part and not have to run tinto anyone.  The way I see it, we will have earned it!

I’ve wondered this too. My guests will be at two hotels in the city and I’m not sure where we should stay. I think we might go with a b&b.

I am a perpetual worrier.  And knowing me, I would have told my Darling Husband “hands off” on the wedding night just because of the slim chance that somehow my parents could have had to change rooms and end up next to ours.   Ewwww…LOL  We definitely stayed at a different hotel.

I’m in the different-hotel-than-block boat.  I just prefer the idea all-around, more romantic, less interruptions, less distractions, et cetera.  🙂

I guess it matters what you want for your wedding night. Do you want to be alone just the two of you and wake up in the morning and start your honeymoon? Or do you want to have an after party with friends and family and wake up in the morning and have every together for breakfast?

I went to three wedding over the past couple of months and each couple wanted the after party and breakfast the following morning. I personally want to be alone. We are reserving a room block at a hotel down the street and will be getting a shuttle for our guests, but Fiance and I are having a car service take us to a hotel right by the airport.

We are staying at a seperate hotel.  It’s literally just down the street but is a boutique hotel compared to a chain hotel that the guest are staying at. 

The next morning we are having people over to our hotel for brunch and say farewell.

We’re staying at the same hotel as everyone else.  We have a trolley going back there and we’re getting a great rate for the top floor suite because we have so many people staying there!

Plus our after party is in the hotel bar so it makes the most sense.
