Hi all! My fiance and I are planning on getting married in France in 2025. We've found a venue that will house a maximum of 92 guests on the estate of a gorgeous castle for a week. We've been really concerned about our guests having to worry about finding a hotel and then the transportation between the hotel and the venue. The estate has numerous houses on the grounds. We initially were only going to book the main house for the wedding and accommodations for our bridal party and family. However, now we're considering paying the amount we originally intended for the main house, and then asking guests to pay the difference between the two if they are interested in staying in one of the additional houses on site. The difference is about $9500 and it would be divded amongst 75 guests (this is low estimate of how many people would be attending ) meaning that each person would pay maximum $127 for the entire week. Is this tacky?
We're more than happy to just pay for just the main house if it is, but we also want to make this trip as easy as possible for our guests! TIA
