We were going to use a service in Newport that supposedly helps you book all of your rooms in all of the little hotels; kind of like setting up your own block with a service that can than book at multiple places; but they were awful, awful, awful…as in, we fired them months prior to the wedding and then the week before the wedding someone from their company started randomly calling our guests to make sure they had their accommodations.

In the end, we got a small block at the HoJo in Middletown, the Courtyard Marriott in Middletown, and the Econo Lodge in Middletown…then we sent out information to all of our guests with the block information as well as information on several of the smaller boutique places that were available in town.

It made for an interesting time delivering all of the welcome bags, but in the end it all worked out well.

Does anyone know what kind of discounts you can get for your guests using room blocks? I’ve tried talking to a few places, but they won’t talk to me until September since the wedding is so far out.

 Also, do some places give a free room for the bride and groom if you do so many room blocks, a friend told me this, but I have never heard of that.

I did room blocks at a hotel and the bride and groom only got a complimentary room when the wedding was being held onsite.
