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!! :)
