Wedding Money: Who Pays for Wedding Guests' Accommodations?
If a couple decides to wed in a distant location, who pays for lodging? The wedding guests?
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.
