I say definitely get the rooms for the city where the wedding will be. It will be easier for the guests to work out their timing for arriving for the ceremony and will be a closer destination to travel to after the reception, which is always a good thing especially if there is alcohol offered. 

If they are going to stay a few days before and after the wedding, then I would think they have time to make a 30-45 minute drive if necessary to go where they want to go when not involved in wedding festivities.

I would say book a hotel between where you live and where the wedding is.

That way it’s easy for them to get to you & back to the hotel, from the hotel to the wedding, vice versa – that way days before and after the wedding they do not have to travel 30 minute to see you +/or family.

I’m in the same situation!  

We are having a rehearsal dinner and a post-wedding brunch for out-of-towners, and both will be in my hometown, so we are thinking that we’ll book a block of rooms in each city.  Hotels in our hometown are a lot less expensive as well, so it also gives our guests more options that way.

Well in that case I would take into consideration what city  they are going to be spending more time in and go with that.

You could always book a block in both locations and then be really clear with the information and locations of the hotels.  That way, people will pick what they would rather do/how far they would prefer to travel.
