This also gives the single person an opportunity to have a travelling companion for tours and dinner partners. We are pretty relaxed and thought this was a good solution. Also one group rented a junior suite. So one individual is staying in the bed out in the main room and the couple is staring the enclosed bedroom. Saving on money compared to the astronomical price for a single to rent.

     

    Hope this helps.

              We've needed to pair up a few people too.  In fact my future sister inlaw is bunking with my FI's good friend who happens to be in the wedding party.  We asked both of them first if they would feel comfortable sharing and they both agreed so it's done.  It's a little strange, but if it means saving a bunch of money they people are usually up for it.

                  I really like the idea of getting single guests to group up. This would work well for us as most of our younger, single guests know each other already and could arrange this on their own. I was wondering though....when you invite someone who is known to be single, do you address the invite to so-and-so plus guest, as you would with an at home wedding, and allow them the option of bringing their own roomate? (if numbers allow of course). What have others done with single guests? Thanks, as always, Kat

                      We sent messages to the people that aren't bringing a guest and put them in touch with each other to see about sharing rooms, we haven't had any problems with it yet!
