So my Maid/Matron of Honor is flying across the country to be in my wedding.. I made my room blocks and everything like 10 months ago. We are now 6 weeks away and my Maid/Matron of Honor has not reserved a hotel room yet. The times I’ve texted to ask about it, she goes non-responsive… and I’m like I get it, you don’t want to be bugged about it…. but seriously? I’ve said multiple times – hey it doesn’t cost anything to make a reservation, and you can always cancel up to 3 days before if you find somewhere else to stay.
I just don’t get why the procrastination on this. I know she’s trying to manage the cost and it’s only getting worse the longer she waits… I mean, this is why I’m worried. Our group rate expires in 5 days. Everyone else booked months ago. She’s already booked a flight… so that’s not up in the air. My Fiance says some people are just weird about travel and even though they complain about costs they just cant get it together and they pay the price, and that’s just how they live. It just makes no sense to me.
I know she’s been rocky with her boyfriend and back and forth about whether he’s coming, but… that shouldn’t weigh on whether or not she needs a hotel room? Blah.. considering making a reservation for her just in case… when I’ve asked her about it she just has all of these squirrely responses and says she’s getting around to it… wtf

@waitingwonderland: Aww man…hmm, could you reserve the room for her first? Is this a situation where she can pay for the room once she gets there?

Can she afford the room?
I’m with your Fiance. She’s probably not looking forward to paying for the room as another expense so she’s dragging her feet. The more you text about it the more she’s just getting annoyed about it, so let it go. Maybe she’s hoping she can crash in someone else’s room or she’ll just figure it out “later”…it’s her problem to deal with.

I will say this much. We had a Groomsmen who did not reserve a hotel room, make prior plans and said he was driving home. He proceeded to get waisted and try to crash in a BMs room. They dropped him back at our hotel, called DH’s GM/Best Man who only then let him crash on the SECOND bed they had (which they knew he had no where to stay- dont get me started on that)…. Make sure she has something lined up ahead of time. I hated hearing about it the next morning and subsequent days. Hell I’m still hearing about it and it just pisses me off the he didn’t line anything up ahead of time, BIL/SIL didn’t open their room for him until another Bridesmaid or Best Man dropped him off and the BMs that dropped him off had tried getting him his own room at their hotel which was sold out. At the age of 30+ its time to act like an adult and be responsible about what you’re doing the night after a wedding. It would be different if he hadn’t pulled the same stunt at BIL/SIL’s wedding last year and I had to upgrade our room with no payment from him.
