    Yeah...I thought about that. And that's what I might do if it comes to that. But FI and I are a little strapped for cash right now with the house & wedding & christmas so close together. And I almost don't want to just on principal of it!!! I don't think it's my responsibility to pick up the pieces of this mess. But I also want my close friend (and photographer!!) to be there!!

    This is a brand new development (I literally received his email 1.5 hrs ago!) so I haven't even been speaking with him. FI also has a friend who may be able to room with him. It's just bullshit that we even have to deal with this. If Chris is there & Eric is not I'm going to be one pissed off bride!!!

      Good idea!

          ok so i dont want to be the meanie in this thread because i think the idea of splitting the cost equally three ways is fair in a way but i really thing its the totally wrong thing to do in this situation! why should Erik have to pay even one penny more than he originally would in a double room just because the other two want to be selfish he did nothing wrong at all

                When people started booking for me I did my best to match up the singles so no one had to pay the single rate. (as it sounds you did) Well by BM decided to change plans and arrive on a different day and hadn't even given a thought to her roomy who would be now on the hook for the extra single rate. I politely laid out her options and let her know that it wouldn't be fair that her roommate may have to pay extra for her change and she would have to help with that. I am glad to say my BM decided to fly on the same day as us. Sometimes just laying out the whole situation for everyone helps. Why change anything, leave the rooms as is and get them to change sleeping arrangements. A room for a couple is just the two beds pushed together.
                Like our first kiss all over again

                  I was waiting for your thoughts on it Harty!!! Thanks for your honestly as always!! hehehe
                  I completely agree with you - but I don't think that will happen! I'm going to suggest that first...but then bring up the splitting the difference 3 ways option - I think they will go for that.

                    how is this- they split the rooms 3 ways. then you pay erik's part of the 1/3 since he will be the photographer?

                      I'm facing a similar situation. My niece is getting married next June and all along I had planned on sharing a room with her sister (my other niece). We travel together and get along great! The problem is, my niece's father (my BIL) doesn't want to go to the wedding - various excuses, depending who you listen to. Now, my sister wants to room with me. That would leave my niece out in the cold, except now her brother (who is in Iraq) wasn't going to go and now he is, so she is going to share a room with him. I looked into the 3 in a room but the room was 2 double beds and I'm not paying all that money to share a room AND a double bed besides.
                      I want to pay my down payment and my sister is still hemming and hawing about whether her husband is going to go or not. If that happens, then I'm left out in the cold. My niece said I can bring a friend, but I don't want to bring someone to my niece's wedding that she doesn't know. I'm thinking about getting my own room, but it's about $250 more. I really don't want to share a room with my sister because I want to party with my niece and have a good time. My sister is the type that gets up at 6 a.m. and wants everyone to go for a walk on the beach.
