Wedding Money: Who Pays for Wedding Guests' Accommodations?

by The Knot
Q:

If a couple decides to wed in a distant location, who pays for lodging? The wedding guests?

A:

Yes. Whether the wedding is in the couple's hometown or far away, they are not expected to pay for guests' lodging. What they can do is get a group rate on a block of rooms at a convenient hotel. That way guests will get a discount rate, but they are still responsible for paying their own way.
