I think that’s a great idea! But…how? umm…begging? Batting beautiful blue eyes? (or whatever color yours are.)

@moniquaa:  You should definitely stay an extra night!  I assume you aren’t going on a honeymoon?  At least not right after?  Like my mom said when I was deciding where we should stay our wedding night and cringing at the prices of the places I wanted to stay, “you only get married once”.  (maybe not always true!) But the point is to make it special. It is no fun to have to wake up and check out and go back to reality right away.  It is so worth it to have that time!

hmmm, we had a Destination Wedding, but had a similar issue since i wanted to switch resorts and stay somewhere else for a week after our wedding, whereas Darling Husband would have been fine saving money and going home after a week with family and friends. we ended up compromising on 10 days, so we had a 4 day honeymoon at a different resort. once we were there, he was happy we did it and admitted it was a good idea (as if i hadn’t known that!).  So maybe you could find some sort of compromise?  not sure how since you only want one extra day.  maybe suggest that you both at least do something different that day or go somewhere fun and relaxing.  he might then up saying the hotel is the best option after all?   just emphasize how much it would mean to you have that day together and make it special by doing something different.

I think staying the night makes it easier. No thinking about transportation and driving after drinking. I’d rather walk back upstairs rather than have to get in the car and drive. You might even get free breakfast if you stay in the right hotel… GO HAMPTON INN!

Just book the extra night, you can always cancel it if you change your mind.

Do the extra night. By the time the reception is over and you wind down and get to bed it will be the middle of the night. It will be nice to sleep in and just hang out for the day without having to worry about leaving the hotel.

Our wedding night we didn’t get to sleep until abou 4am and our reception ended at 12:30am. But we were both wired and laid in bed talking about everything that happened and ate snacks. Waking up the next morning to check out was not pleasant.

Point out to him what time you’ll have to get up in the morning to get everything packed away in time to check out by 10:30 or 11 or whatever the hotel’s policy is:  Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to just wake up whenever? And not have to rush through breakfast?

I definitely think you should have the extra night! We stayed at a hotel on the beach and the next day we had a late checkout of 1 PM. But we went home and that was it. It would’ve been nice to be able to lay around the beach that day and still have the hotel room to ourselves.

We left our wedding a bit before everyone and even though we where both so tired, we made it a point to stay up and just enjoy being alone.  Not to long but long enough to talk about our day.  

I do recommend you staying another day, especially if you are not having a honeymoon.
