The answer to this is very simple: the guest. The couple’s wedding budget is going to cover everything from meals to entertainment, plus there may be one or more venues. The hotel bill is a part of the sacrifice a guest makes to be there for their friends or family on their special day.
That said, hotel prices are skyrocketing in the wake of the pandemic. Besides inflation, it seems like hotel owners want us to make up for all the money they missed out on while the travel industry was at a standstill. So what can you do to help out your wedding guests? Here are a couple of things to consider:
- Book a block of rooms for guests – You may not be able to get enough rooms for everyone who is coming in from out of town, but if you book a block of rooms at a local hotel, you can get a discounted rate. Offer it to family members, the wedding party, and friends who you know are on a tight budget first. If there are still rooms after that, open it up to the guest list on a first come, first served basis.
- Make sure the reception is worth the expense – Wow your guests with delicious food and drink as well as outstanding wedding entertainment. It shows that you appreciate the effort everyone made to come and share your special day with you.
