Blocking rooms

Recommended Posts

How early did everyone start blocking rooms at the hotel?


I am in the process of trying to estimate how many rooms I will need to block so that my TA can start the paperwork with the hotel. since my wedding isn't until April 2010, I don't want to seem pushy by asking all my guests if they think they are actually going or not.

I started blocking rooms last month... I'm getting married August 2010. I based the number of rooms I needed to block on the amount of guests I was going to invite. I don't have to pay for unused rooms so I took my maximum amount of guests as an estimate.

I blocked in January for November. I sent an email out to family and close friends and asked if they thought they may be coming and got a good # from there. I went over on the room block because it is Thanksgiving weekend and the hotel books up - but we can drop any amount until May, and then we can drop certain percentages of rooms after that if they aren't booking - the being able to drop rooms is very helpful and highly recommended

    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
    • As you have said it is going to be a beach wedding so I would recommend a combination of Calla Lily and Daffodil. You can also use Calla lily or Daffodil individually. Both the flowers have different colors so it will easily attract anyone.

    • I’m a wedding planner/organizer by profession. Truth be told, I don’t have that much experience in the industry but I’m doing the best I can. We will be working on a wedding next month with a foreign couple. I’m usually the one who handles everything on behalf of the bride during the day so I need some tips and advice on how to handle brides from foreign countries. Do they need special accommodations? What are the kinds of services they are used to when under pressure? What kind of snacks should I offer them during breaks or when they’re hungry? Thanks so much in advance.
