You may notice something about our website: I am a bad, bad bride.
I decided that I didn’t want to deal with hotel blocks, and that everyone could put on their grown-up britches and book their own rooms. Why? Well, at work I coordinate the events our company goes to, and the company has a set amount they usually want to spend on hotels. The room blocks are always way more than they’re willing to spend, so they look elsewhere every single time.
My family is pretty cheap.
Mr. Hyena’s family lives close enough that many of them will just drive home after the wedding. Many of our friends are still in school or recently out of college and likely wouldn’t want to spend much for a place to stay. It seems silly to set aside a hotel block when I will eventually—inevitably—have to foot the cost for unused rooms. Plus, I’m lazy and I just didn’t want to bother. Too big a hassle.
Besides, this being a college town, there are tons of places to stay. And because we do want to help out our guests a little, we did list a few nearby hotels on our website, and I even Yelped them to make sure they had good reviews!
Are you setting aside hotel blocks? Am I an awful, awful bride?
