Thank you for the quick response and all the great information from your wedding! So you paid the couple hundred dollar deposit for the wedding but not the individual room deposits ($50-$100), right?
Did you estimate how many guests/rooms you want them to hold then two months before the wedding just cancel the additional rooms that were not reserved? I want to make sure I am understanding you correctly because right now our travel agent says we will need guests to reserve before signing the contract. We don't want to have guests be forced into responding in a month from now when our wedding is NEXT June.
