We are 10 months out and I just sent out our 2nd round of save the dates. We set up our room block about 10 months to go. We have 14 people booked with 6 rooms reserved out of our 10 room block, we still have 4 rooms to meet the requirement of the room block. When did your guests start booking their rooms?
When did the majority of your guests start booking?

Its hard because your wedding is so far out still. Ive only had 12 people book so far and they all booked in the month of March. I sent out 65+ invites and alot of people say they are gonna book but havent yet. My wedding is in December just to give you a time frame.

Did you put down a deposit for the 10 rooms? If so, was the length of stay the same for all? I'm not understanding how that works. Also if you don't fill the 10 room block, do you no longer get the group room rate? I need help!

With Dreams and my TA, I paid a deposit per room, so for 10 rooms I ended up paying a 1750.00 deposit. That was applied to my stay for the week so I wasn't worried about that. I panicked as well about whether or not I would lose the rate because at first I did not think I would get the 10 rooms but I think the people that had already booked would have been able to keep their rate, it's just that the other incentives would no longer be in place, like free nights that I could earn and what not. They do not all have to be the exact same nights either. I have people staying from 2-7 days and coming and leaving on different days.

I was worried we wouldn't have enough people either, so I didn't do a block or group rate. We have people contemplating different arrival/departures and different room classes. Good to know your guests should keep their rates.
