Out-of-Town Guest

What is an Out-of-Town Guest?

An out-of-town guest is a guest that has traveled from afar to attend the wedding.

They are normally expected to pay for their own lodging unless they are members of the wedding party.

It is, however, thoughtful to help out-of-town guests find a place to stay.

Key Points

  • A common rule of wedding etiquette is that the bride and groom are responsible for arranging lodging and accommodation for their out-of-town guests.
  • If guests are not staying with family, the bride and groom can help defray hotel expenses if they are able to.
