Tips and advice for wedding accomodation
Always book accomodation well in advance. You will be looking around for odd rooms here and there if you leave it to long.
You don’t have to provide accomodation for guests who can’t afford it as you will go way over your budget. If you really, really, really want that person to be there think long and hard about it.
The wedding party’s accomodation is normally paid for by the bride and groom. Ecspecially if you want them to pay for there own outfits.
Peak and off peak seasons apply to hotels as well. As with you wedding venue and time of year so take this into account when choosing your date.
