awesome, this is really helpful. And any stragglers just called her directly to book? Did you block out flights too? The last travel agent I spoke with said that if you don't block out flights your guests might end up without a flight or a really expensive one.
Also, when did you start booking the flights and hotel?
we had to schedule our wedding like 8 months out and are rushing everything.

clgriffi, this sounds almost exactly what my travel agent got for us. I used a friend of the family (Kim Grammar from i-travelagent.com firstname.lastname@example.org if any one is interested)
We were able to have a slightly smaller block, though. We only had to guarantee 8 rooms (Kim told us that the minimum for a group booking was 6) and we ended up booking 10. I loved getting the call that the rest of our stay was paid off through free-night credits
Sasha, as for letting our guests know, Kim and her wedding specialist Gail basically re-vamped our wedding website with all the travel info, and I included a card in our invites with Kim's contact information. Also from my experience, the rates were pretty close to what I was able to find online (a little better).
