My boyfriend and I (we're not "officially" engaged yet, but will be soon, and are looking to get married around June 2011) were talking about accomidations for out-of-town guests. All but 10 of his guests live in the Walla Walla area, where the wedding will be held, and it won't be any problem to accomodate those 10 people. I, however, am from Vancouver, WA, and while it's only a 4 hour drive, have far too many people that potentially would need to be put-up somewhere for the wedding. My question is, is it required for the bride and groom to put reserve accomodations for out-of-town guests, or is it ok to leave whether they want to stay the night (and where) in their hands? My boyfriend and I are still in college, and while we can make a nice wedding happen on a small budget, reserving rooms for 35 or more guests is way out of our monetary ability.
