Do they offer a discount at least? Mine doesn’t block rooms but they offered a discount so that helped with the wording. If not, I would put a few hotels in near the wedding venue (and their phone numbers) on the card. It’s nice to offer them options so they can “shop around”. It’s not needed for everyone to stay in the same hotel if they can find another one that’s cheaper.

@smg5281:  I think you can just write “Accomodations: Hotel name and address”  I had a friend who did this, and she listed two of the closest hotels with the distance from the reception site, and included them as points on a map of the ceremony/reception area.

@smg5281:  I second the post from @jessicadarling:. I just got a wedding invite that listed the 2 closest hotels.  They listed the contact info and no mention of a block of rooms.

I don’t love the way this sounds, but it got our point across (“We arent saving rooms for you, so call NOW!) Here’s what we used:

A special rate for our guests is reserved at the XXX hotel in YYY. However, the actual rooms are not being held, so guests are encouraged to reserve their rooms as soon as possible. Individual reservations must be made by calling the hotel at …

ETA: I agree that if you’re not doing anything like providing a special rate, you dont need to write anything except “Accomodations:” and then list the hotel info

Ours just says Accomodations: Hotel 1, Hotel 2 with descriptions (and pictures) of each.  Our venue actually was charging us to hold the rooms (there’s only 27 hotel rooms there).  While we’d eventually get the money back it was a lot of our budget up front so we chose to not block them.  There are two other large hotels nearby people could also use.  Probably not the best set-up but it’ll work out.
