I am not sure where I am suppose to have guests book their hotel room. The venue we are getting married at is an hour away from our house. Most of our guests are from out of town. We are providing limos to the ceremony and back so should we have them book hotels close to the ceremony or close to our house?

How does your house play into the wedding? Where’s the reception being held? I’d suggest hotels near the venue unless there’s a significant price differences or you’re having a party at your house afterwards…

Will the guests be coming to your house at all, other than maybe immediate family? I really dont see why you would book them close to your house if your house has nothing to do with the wedding. I voted close to the venue because it would cut down on traveling time and give guests more time to get ready and get there and plus, then it would save you money on limos back and forth and guest can get back to their rooms easier.

I would rather be close to the venue if I were a guest.

The only reason I was considering having them book by my house is because most people will be coming in a few days early and we plan to have them over for get togethers and take them out to show them around. Our wedding is small so total there will only be about 50 guests and half of them are from Out of Town. It would be hard to escort 25 people to and from our house from an hour away.

If I were a guest, I’d want to be close to the venue – I think it would be kind of a drag to have to drive an hour after the wedding to get back to the hotel!

My vote goes for hotel by the venue, makes perfect sense to me….and I am sure the guests would appreciate it too. One question though is the ceremony near the venue or your hometown?

I vote venue. I think your guests will like not having to go very far after the celebration!

Close to the venue. They have no reason to be at your house unless the ceremony/reception is there and it doesn’t sound like they are.
