I am getting married next year also – I just went in last week and booked my block. The hotel we are doing ours at (A Hampton Inn & Suites if that matters) does 10 at a time… and if those 10 fill up, they take another 10 for us, and so on. I have already told a majority of my guests, and since its the only hotel in town that has a shuttle, it books up fast, so most of my guests who need to book a room will be doing so in the near future. I hope this helps!

First off, I would check with another hotel or two in your area, as that seems kind of like scare tactics to get you to reserve. Where I live, it would be crazy talk to reserve a block that far out, but every city is different.

But if they concur, I would suggest doing a best guess and making sure you’re clear on the block contract. Some don’t have any penalty for not filling up those rooms, I believe others do.

We did ours a year out but the lady told us we were incredibly early.  We reserved at a Hyatt Place.  We started with 10.  The lady said if that gets booked then we can increase.  The catch was to reserve 10 rooms is free but to reserve 15 we have to provide a credit card and gaurantee a certain percent was booked.
