Please, Please, Please Me

I'm feeling a little frustrated today. It's probably because none of my relatives understands why we have suggested more than one hotel for wedding accommodations. Apparently it's de riguer in their world to book 10 rooms at one hotel and encourage everyone to stay there. The problem is that we're likely to need 30 rooms or more because EVERYONE'S coming from out of town, and not everyone has the same idea of what a reasonable room rate is or what amenities are really necessities. I'm extremely grateful that so many people are willing to make the trip—and I'm thrilled at the prospect of gathering friends and family members of widely varying backgrounds—but trying to make everyone happy is starting to freak me out. Does making everyone else happy mean that I have to make myself miserable?
