99% percent of our 150 ish wedding guests are local ( live within 1 hour of venue). About half the guests live approx 50 mins away, the other half live 30 mins away
How many rooms would you suggest I block for the wedding? They have free shuttle service from the hotel to our venue (which is awesome) for more than 15 rooms, but anything over 15 rooms we have to garuntee 80% so I don’t want to go overboard. WWYD?

@Boxerlover24: Does your hotel have the kind of hotel blocks where you can start with a small number, and add as you go? If so, I’d start with 15 and go from there? Though it sounds like most of your guests probably won’t need a hotel…hmm…could you survey your guests? Sorry, thinking out loud over here!

@Boxerlover24: Yeah, the hotel we used for our wedding preferred that we do it that way, so we weren’t blocking out so many of their rooms at once!
