Eeesh. It does make it hard, that's for sure. I used to have some "connections" in Sarasota when I was traveling all over the place for work, but I don't any longer. The hotels over there are pricey, that's true.
Is there any chance you can stay outside of Sarasota and drive in for the wedding and rehearsal and all that stuff? I know you probably want some amount of convenience given all your driving.
