You’ve just said “I do,” and now you’re ready to celebrate your nuptials with family and friends. But where should everyone stay? You have several options for wedding night accommodations, from renting a suite at a local hotel to booking a room at an AirBnB. But most importantly, you have to decide if you want to stay in the same accommodations as the rest of your guests.

Considerations of Post-Wedding Parties and Stays

If you’re having a destination wedding, you may want to think about staying at the same resort or hotel where your guests are staying. This will make it easy for everyone to meet up and continue the celebration.

If you’re having a local wedding, the best option may be renting a house or suite for the weekend. This will give you a private space to relax and spend time with your new spouse. And on top of that, it will be a great place to host any post-wedding parties.

Whatever you decide, its important to choose a place that you’ll be comfortable and able to enjoy your time as newlyweds!

Hotels versus Airbnb’s

If you’re looking for more of a traditional hotel experience, there are plenty of options in Ohio. However, if you’re wanting something a little more unique or budget-friendly, Airbnb’s can be a great option.


Pros: You’ll have all the amenities of a hotel room including housekeeping, 24-hour front desk service, room service, etc.

Cons: Hotels can be more expensive than other options and you may not have as much privacy for larger groups.


Pros: You can often find unique places to stay, like a historic home or an apartment in a desirable location. Airbnb’s can also be less expensive than hotels for groups who want to stay together.

Cons: You may have to sacrifice some amenities that you would get at a hotel, like housekeeping or 24-hour front desk service.

Where Should You Spend the Night After Your Wedding

If you’re looking for a quiet and intimate setting, consider renting a room at a bed and breakfast. You’ll be able to relax and enjoy each other’s company without the distractions of daily life. Also, most bed and breakfasts offer special rates for newlyweds.

If you’re hoping to celebrate with family and friends, consider renting out a cabin or lodge. This way, everyone can stay together in one place and continue the party into the wee hours of the morning. Just be sure to book early, as these places fill up fast during wedding season.

For those who want to keep the party going all night long, there are plenty of hotels in Ohio that offer wedding packages. Many of these hotels have special rates for guests who book a block of rooms for their wedding party. And, some even offer complimentary champagne and breakfast in bed the next morning.

Benefits of Staying at Your Venue

If you prefer not having to decide where to stay after your wedding, a great option is to just stay at your wedding venue when they offer the opportunity. You’ll be able to relax and enjoy your time without having to worry about traveling to another location. You’ll have access to all the amenities and resources that your venue has to offer. You can spend more time with your guests and continue celebrating your special day. It’s also great way to support the business that provided you with such a beautiful setting for your wedding.
