So FI and I blocked rooms at a hotel near our ceremony and reception locations. It is your run of the mill Hampton Inn-nothing fancy but still respectable and comfortable. We did this to keep costs down for our guests. Hotel rooms easily get into the $200/night price range in this area of town so we wanted to keep in mind friends' and family budgets.
That being said, we could make the 30 minute drive home on Saturday night but staying in a hotel nearby seems so much more convenient. The Hampton doesn't have a honeymoon type suite, or even suites at all. Would it be rude to stay at a different hotel?
I mean, if we don't go home I at least want to stay somewhere semi-special on our wedding night.
P.S. this was inspired by MasonWalker's thread about sleeping arrangements. It isn't really anything FI and I had thought about
