An exception would be if your best friend or close relatives are from out of town and need wedding guest accommodations. Having them close to you on the days before the wedding can be a relief and give you the extra energy you need.

An alternative might be to arrange private wedding guest accommodations with close relatives or friends in the town of the wedding. Giving you have close relatives with the space and ability to accommodate the guests.


If you do not have the time, energy or space to accommodate the guests in your home you should consider booking them in a nearby hotel or motel.
