It'll have things like maps, phone numbers, things to remember, wedding day info, and an "ice-breaker" page introducing all guests attending.
        - small things like a cake topper, starfish for my bouquet
        - Write up ceremony/readings. My uncle will be helping me with this since he is performing the ceremony

              I think you should contact a TA. I got my room block and I had to pay only a couple hundred per room, not the entire stays worth. I think if you went through a room block, you'd only have to pay around 5000-7000 total.

              In addition to that, you don't actually pay that towards your guest's rooms, you can apply that to the cost of your wedding reception if you want.
