    Family Spread Out Everywhere!

    Hi everyone!

     

    So my fiance and I have just started planning our wedding and are having some trouble as our families are spread out everywhere! We have family coming from Scotland, Newcastle upon Tyne, Lincolnshire and Yorkshire! Most of these are all close family and so we are struggling because we feel like we should be able to sort accommodation for them all, but unfortunately it looks like if we want to put everyone up it's going to cost us an absolute fortune which we cannot afford! We are now stuck, we don't know whether we would be best just to pay for accommodation for immediate family (parents and siblings) and ask everyone else to find their own accommodation. We ideally just want a small venue as we are just having a small amount of people attending, most of these venues don't provide much accommodation anyways (if any). 

     

    If anyone has any advice we would really appreciate it!! :)

    Nobody expects you to pay accommodation for a guest attending a wedding, I wouldn't even offer it.  If you feel like you have to, then bridal party only, but seriously, no one would expect this and you are adding on potentially hundreds of pounds to your budget. Just try to source reasonably priced accommodation and send people a list of suggestions.

    I agree, it's absolutely not your responsibility to accomodate everyone.

    It's a very generous thought, but people expect a certain amount of cost when attending a wedding. They're your family and I'm sure they won't begrudge the cost of a hotel to be with you x
