Accomodation for guests included in venue price
Our venue comes with accommodation for guests and it's an exclusive use all weekend deal - of course paying for what works out as a weekend break ( fri.sat.sun nights) for 30 odd people pushes it over budget a bit - but it's a little remote and people will be coming long distances to attend so will need to stay. Has anyone that has had that kind of venue asked people to book the accommodation through us and giving a price ? or just taken the hit and see if anyone offers to pay for their accommodation ?
We can't have the venue without the accommodation and it will be seriously lovely to have everyone together for a whole weekend - just the money side is stressing me a bit.
Its a small place with only limited options for accommodation off the site so I could give a where to stay card so they have the option to stay on site or at a local pub/guesthouse and ensure pricing for the venue is cheapest. We do have another house we can book for a further 16 guests ( which will pretty much cover everyone then) which we can say is the same price ( its about 500 yards from the venue )
Just having a read through this old thread http://www.youandyourwedding.co.uk/forum/the-wedding-budget/guests-contributing-towards-accommodation/274416.html - but if anyone has any updated thoughts that would be really helpful
