I would HIGHLY recommend working with a travel agent. It is no cost to you and eliminates a lot of the headaches with your guests coming to you with questions. I seriously do not know what I would do without mine. I don't know how true this is but my agent said that websites such as travelocity and bookit do not check availability when people are booking and in the case of an overbooking the guests that went through those means to get a room are the first ones that have to be moved. Again I cannot speak from personal experience but I would hate for you to have to deal with that.
However we are having about 80 guests and with a smaller number you may have no problems.
Good luck with everything!!

also, what sort of per night rate are you getting? are you working through a travel agent? the royal's rates increased a few weeks ago, and they're likely going up again September 1. we've told people to make a reservation on booking.com (free cancellation, no reservation fees) so they can re-book if rates drop. I don't know how else to guarantee the lowest price.
