Has anyone found a way to get around the 2 night minimum stay at a hotel? We are having our wedding at a resort area several hours driving from where we live. Our DJ and photographer have requested a hotel, which we were expecting. However, they are only requiring a hotel for the night of the event (Saturday) because they have other events on Friday night. Every single resort in the area has a 2 night minimum stay and despite calling them we have not been able to find a way around this.
Our only other option is to book them at a hotel that is 30 minutes driving away from the location of our wedding. Is this acceptable? Is that too far? I have no idea what to do! Our photographer has charged us a lodging fee but said if we are able to find a place for them we can book it ourselves too.
Did anyone else experience something similar? What did you do?
