I have a dilemma and would love for some advice. I have a lot of out-of-town guests attending my wedding including from out of the country.
Our wedding venue is one-hour away from our home and it’s one hour away from the Airport. It’s kind of a secluded area.
We plan on having our wedding reception go until midnight-1am.
Would it be better for the guests to have hotel rooms blocked out at a hotel near our venue, the airport, or an area of attractions? Any suggestions/advice is welcomed.

I would block rooms close to more that one location. In your case, I would block rooms at a hotel near the venue and another block near downtown/attractions. I don’t think anyone is going to want to stay near an airport.

I have a similar problem–I think near the venue. That’s what I did, and I figured people could drive a little bit longer back to the airport.

Does anyone know how far in advance do you start blocking out hotel rooms?

I have a similar dilemma. I booked a block near downtown/the airport and another near the venue. I booked mine last month for our Sept/10 wedding. 🙂

Our venue is about 45 minutes to an hour from home and 90 minutes from the airport. I reserved a block of rooms at the hotel closest to our venue, and then I listed hotels near our home on our wedding website, so our guests could choose for themselves.
I really want to have our rehearsal dinner close to our home, but that’s going to be a lot of driving for the wedding party, so that’s all up in the air at the moment.

I just got my hotels blocked this month for my August wedding. We are celebrating in a tourist town so I wanted to make sure this was set-up for sure.

i’m having a terrible time blocking rooms in Vegas – they want me to put a deposit down! is that normal?

I’m blocking rooms in a historic boutique hotel for my guests most of which are OOT guests. Our venue is about an hour and a half way so we’m renting out luxury party vans for my OOT guests so they can relax and enjoy the ride instead of trying to navigate to our ceremony since our venue is up in the mountains of Kentucky. We’re having the buses leave the venue around 10:30-11 PM and arriving back at the hotel around 12:30 AM.

I would say near the venue but I would also look into listing a couple of hotels near the airport to give guests that option also.
