So your BMs are planning to stay in their hometown the night before the wedding and then drive back afterwards also?

I’d let them stay at their family homes or cheaper hotels if its within a reasonable distance. They really are the best ones to judge if they want to drive back and forth. Is there a reason you want to insist on the bridal party spending money on a room when they have a place to stay that is likely free or cheap, considering all the money they already put towards being in your wedding? At my friend’s wedding, it was 40 minutes from our hometown. Most of the bride’s family, all of whom I am close with, were staying in the town where the wedding was held. They also gave the bridal party that option. Considering my Dad’s house was in reasonable driving distance, I just went home and stayed there to save myself the money. Unless there was a reason that you NEED the bridal party there, I would reconsider insisting that they stay. If they have found another more affordable hotel, or have a place to stay elsewhere, I’m not sure why you would insist on having them stay in the rooms you booked. Being in a wedding is expensive venture, and I’m sure they are all happy to spend money on the necessities, like dress, shoes, etc… I just don’t think staying at the place you want them to is necessary if its going to cost them more than the other options they have available to them.
