What?  Posted: 3:38 PM, July 18th (Thursday)

My best friend is getting married. My dd and I are in the wedding, and my ds is also coming. I knew we needed to stay at the resort for 2 nights. I knew it wouldn't be cheap, it is a resort, but...I just called, and it's $90 per person per night. So that's $600, just on sleeping for the two nights. holey crap. I don't know whether to call her and ask her if she knows how much they are charging, or just shut up and suck it up. I was expecting 300-400, but yikes!

That's what the lady said. $90 per person, per night. It's cabins, not a hotel

Is there a nearby hotel you can stay at for less? Maybe explain the situation to your friend?

Also, have you asked her if the resort is giving any discount for it being a group that is making reservations?

That's ridiculous! I echo the shopping around sentiment. There's no way I'd spend $600 to spend 2 nights in a cabin...

I'm not sure I really have a choice, being that we are in the wedding party...but you don't think it would upset her if I call her and tell her how much they are charging per night? I'm guessing she must know...but I'm also guessing most people coming are going to be shocked also!

Also...is it sad that I'm "happy" you are all shocked too, and it's not just that I'm unworldly and cheap?

I can't remember if I knew how much the hotel rooms cost for those that stayed overnight. I think you should tell her that it's a little out of your price range and would she mind if you stayed offsite. I'd honestly be appalled that it was costing that much if I was the bride.

I'm shocked beyond shocked... I could handle $90 a night for the room... but not $90 per person.

What else comes with the room?

I have absolutely no idea what else comes with the room. I'd say that better include all meals...but it's a wedding! We are being fed anyway!

I did call her, and carefully asked if she knew how much they were charging, and she said no, no, no, no....lol I'm going to guess it isn't going to be cheap, but hopefully it will come down some! My dress, my dd's dress, shoes, etc., need to find something for my son to wear since he's not in the party, gift, a non-paid day off from work....this wedding is costing me large!

I'm not too shocked but I think most hotel prices are ridiculous and look for deals any and everywhere.
