You’ll stay at the official wedding hotel
When we were pretty broke and invited to a wedding, my husband and I immediately knew we would not be staying at whatever hotel the betrothed couple blocked off rooms at. That was always going to be a four-star hotel. If it was in another country, it was always going to be at the name-brand chain like a Marriott or Hilton, and we just knew it’d be pricey. We immediately overlooked whatever hotel everyone else would be staying at, and went on the hunt for some local Bed and Breakfast or family-owned inn. Now that we make a bit more, it’s nice to just stay where the rest of the wedding party is staying. We feel more included in the festivities.
