Ok so this is a hot topic on my plate right now!! MOB...MOG...FI...and I are all up in arms over this...
Part 1- Who pays for the (OOT) Bridal Party hotel rooms?
Part 2- Am I obligated to pay for hotel rooms for the bridal party members that are LOCAL? I am providing a DAY OF ROOM.
Part 3- I am in the process of doing a room block. My ceremony & reception are at this hotel. Even though I am spending 10k plus, if I contract to book rooms at a discounted rate for OOT, I have to book a minimum of 15 rooms. Say only 8 guest book rooms, I am on the hook for the balance of the remaining balance of ALL the unused rooms! So the question is, are we obligated to provide a discounted rate for the guest, or should we book a block at another hotel (more than 15 minutes away).
