I’m just curious what your room plans are for the night of. Are you staying in a hotel or at home? Will you stay in the same hotel where guests will be? Our wedding ceremony is in the same town as our home. It seems like it would be a little strange to just go home, but it’s also kind of a waste of money to get a hotel, right?

Our reception is literally less than a mile from our house but we’re staying at a hotel. It is the same hotel we have a block of rooms secured at but we’re making sure they don’t put our room near any of the guests

Our venue was 1.5 hours away from where I lived (and three hours from DH’s house.) Our guests either went home or stayed at one of our recommended hotels that were near our venue. However, DH and I stayed at the hotel I had always dreamed of staying for my wedding night. It was about 45 minutes away from our venue, in the city from which we were departing for our honeymoon.

99% of our guests were local so we did not book a hotel for our guests. Originally I was going to stay at our house and DH at his best man’s house (which is litearally 5 houses down from us). But we ended up having a little extra money at the end and I stayed at a hotel near the venue with my Maid/Matron of Honor. DH and I stayed there our wedding night.

We’re staying at the same hotel where our block is for out-of-towners. We’re getting married in FI’s home town and his parents live nearby, but we didn’t want to stay with them that night.

We are staying at a different hotel than our guests. The venue is about 45 minutes from home, and we plan to see guests the next morning before they leave, so we will be staying in town. The only reason we are staying at a different hotel, is that I really wanted a suite, and the only hotel near our venue doesn’t have any!

We stayed at the same hotel that our guest block was in.

We stayed at a different (much nicer) hotel than our guests. We recommended a reasonably-priced hotel that was close to the highway and venue for them, and I booked us the best hotel in the city, right downtown on the river. It was a splurge but it was so worth it. If you’re going to spend the money for any one night – that’s the one!

We are staying at home. I just can’t imagine spending money in a hotel room when we own our own home. Also, I would be much more comfortable at home then in a hotel room. Plus the next day we are just hanging out and doing last minute things before we leave the next day for our honeymoon.

I stayed at my parents’ home, and DH stayed in the hotel where our guests were staying. It worked out nicely, for the most part! 😀

- Wedding: July 2012 - The Gables Inn, Santa Rosa, CA
A honeymoon suiete came with the package when we booked our venue for the wedding, but we are going home. We recently bought our house, and when we bought it we had to decide between the house and the wedding, and decided to put the wedding on hold– so that night will be our first chance to have our cake and eat it too 🙂 we want to be in our own house as a married couple!

We are staying in a nice hotel in downtown Atlanta. Our venue is only about 30 minutes from home but we are departing from the Atlanta airport the next morning (the airport is about 45 minutes from our house).
