I’m getting married on a Saturday so I did 20 rooms friday night and 20 rooms saturday night.  I also did 5 rooms Wednesday and Thursday night for family members that are flying in from far locations and have expressed interest to stay a few days.  My hotel was able to give me the same rate for all days.

I would think they would let you block rooms for any time you want….I did 2 nights for mine, and it wasn’t a problem at all.

IIRC, we blocked out 2 nights (night before and night of) which guaranteed guests would get a room at the specified rate.  The hotel’s policy was that they’d honor the rate pre- and post- for 2 nights (or maybe it was three…I can’t remember!), so if someone came earlier/stayed later, they *could* get the same rate.  The hotel covered their a$$es by saying that there was no guarantee that rooms would be available "in your price category."  But we had no problems.   I never could *quite* figure out the whole room block thing, but my understanding is that it’s better to take the fewest number of rooms/nights you think you can get away with so that you’re not "on the hook" for too many rooms or nights.
