“You can’t control what other people do. You can only control your own reaction.”


Sound familiar?


Your Fiance seems to be able to control his reaction. When people offer unsoliicted advice ” We will take that into consideration” then do it the way you want.

We had a game night in the hotel lobby the night before, with pizza, sodas and cookies. A bowl game on the tv, lively rounds of cards… it was great. And fairly cheap. We just spoke with the hotel beforehand to reserve the eating area/lobby. I’m sure you could rent a conference room or something if you needed to. That being said, that whole event was on my mom. She wanted something to do, so I let her plan that and she loved it. My brother is getting married in 3 weeks and my aunt is planning a game night at the hotel the night before because it was so much fun. Post-wedding… are you going to be there? If not, you don’t need to plan it, I don’t think. But you could put together a list of places people could go and a list of cab services. Maybe they would want to know about some things to do nearby while they’re in the area for the wedding .Maybe inform people of the pre party and the post wedding options and some nearby things to do on a sheet they recieve when they check in to the hotel? 




Or you could do nothing and tell you dad to do it. 🙂 Don’t stress out about it. Sounds like you’ve accounted for your guest comfort.
