We are doing that. Our wedding is in 16 days so I can’t tell you about the turn out yet. We have a huge lodge that sleeps 60 and so most of our 90 guests will be staying there. There is a chapel next door and then weather permitting we will eat outside. It just made sense for us to do it this way. Guess I’ll let you know in a month how it worked out for us!

@OkieHeart:  Sounds perfect! I’m having my wedding at a resort, and we’re staying there Friday through Monday, along with most of our out-of-town friends. We’re excited to be able to spend an entire weekend to celebrate our wedding so we don’t have to worry about the day itself feeling too short.

Is there a hotel nearby for other people who won’t fit at the house? Or do you anticipate lots of people sharing rooms?

Are you planning on having it catered or DIY?

I’m doing a similiar thing too! My venue comes with a big lodge (6 bedroom/4 bathroom) and a farmhouse (4 bed/2 bath) along with the reception hall. 

How many people are you planning to fit in a 5-br house? I’m thinking my lodging will end up being for the bridesmaids/groomsmen and their families. I’m not so sure how I feel about them staying in the same lodge as Fiance and me on our wedding night, but it’ll be fine.

I had the exact same thoughts as you as far as it being perfect for everyone to be able to get ready together and stay together and have brunch on Sunday together instead of all splitting off to different hotels.. 

I’m excited to hear how it goes for cstylist12!

We’re doing this! For our reception location our “fee” for the reception space is having our guests stay in the hotel/B&B/lodge’s 11 rooms. Thankfully, there is also a nice but inexpensive hotel a mile down the road.

I love the idea. I think it will be super convenient for a lot of people (since everyone is traveling). I think that this is an AWESOME option for a non-traditional venue. I’m thinking our’s will probably feel pretty “cozy” which is great. =)

Totally doable.

We WERE going to have our wedding at a bed & breakfast, but the “extra costs” were eating us alive.
