Yeah we chose to not get a room at the same hotel as the wedding blocks. It actually worked out to where I just found a better rate for a suite at a hotel down the road so that’s why we went with a different one. However, now that I’m thinking about it I don’t think I would want to have the possibility of running into family members the next morning. I don’t know why, but I picture a conversation like an aunt and uncle saying, “So… what did you guys do last night??” Which I know would never happen, but still… lol

We have three blocks.  I chose one of the blocks because that is where I wanted to stay.  I did the block there, including our suite, specifically to get a cheaper rate for our suite.  I don’t foresee many of our guests staying there because it is significantly more expensive than the other two options we are suggesting.

I’m going to agree with a comment Ms. Sewing made on one of her posts:  I don’t want my guests to see me after my wedding night.  My Fiance and I are waiting to have sex for marriage and we do not want to be teased!  🙂

That being said, we decided to book a hotel near the airport since we’ll be leaving for the honeymoon the morning after.

I’ve been debating this one too – we are getting married in an area with a bunch of ‘ok’ options, but no ‘great’ options. This is ok for our guests, but we were sort of hoping to have a place where we could book ourselves a ‘honeymoon suite’ type of thing!

We got married in Palm Beach Gardens and spent the night at a hotel in Ft. Lauderdale (about an hour away) because we were flying out of Ft. Lauderdale the next day for our honeymoon.

Before leaving for our hotel we had to stop at the hotel that our guests were blocked at to change out of our wedding clothes and grab our bags.  We ran into our tipsy friends who had paired up, and other friends came banging on the door to say hi.  If  we’d stayed at the hotel with everyone else, who knows how long that would’ve gone on.  

We wanted privacy, so we left 🙂  Plus, if your parents are staying in the block hotel, you definitely don’t want them interrupting anything Wink

we are staying in the same hotel for a couple of reasons…

we’re having a post wedding brunch in one of the hotel’s banquet rooms the following morning so we’ll need to be up early-ish and dressed and this eliminates having to commute there.  we have the biggest suite (which i’m actually getting ready in that morning) lastly, i live in nyc where hotels are a fortune and we figured, we got a great deal on a beautiful room…why waste $600 just to stay somewhere else.

I’m hoping we’ll be at a different hotel, or at least in a different PART of the hotel.

go with a different one!  the way i see it, and maybe im being selfish but i dont really care…you and your new hubby need to be alone, the night of your wedding and the following week is your honeymoon nobody expects you to hang out with them!

I am staying at the same hotel as my block.  They gave us a free room and its just so much more convient for us distance wise. Plus I wanna party with my friends after the reception, aka when I can actually start drinking that night 🙂

We stayed at the same place as our guests. I’m not sure if the hotel did it on purpose, but they gave us a corner room (free surprise upgrade) and put our friends down the hall on the same floor, and my parents and family a few floors away. It worked out really well! We spent some extra time with friends in one of their suites and then went down the hall to our room at the end of the night, without running into any aunts, uncles, or grandparents.
