How annoying! I think your message is fine.

If it is past the RSVP deadline and people have not sent it back you need to contact each person individually, not in a mass Facebook message.  When you contact them about the RSVP you can remind them about the hotel situation.  For those that have already RSVPd and not booked a room, that is their problem.

@FutureMrsLAL:  You are going to have to contact them individually anyhow to confirm their attendance  so why not mention the hotel at that time?

I wonder if they consider their verbal yes as an RSVP.  If they keep telling you they are coming they might not think they have to RSVP.  If your deadline has passed I’d call each guest unit and get confirmation and remind them the block expires on the 5th.  I wouldn’t send a mass fb message – it has the potential to get lost in the mix.

What a pain!! I’d say send the message, and then contact those who you don’t hear from that way individually.

I would put more of a sense of urgency there, so they know that there’s no time to waste. It isn’t about the RSVP as much as booking the room on a strict timeline

I think it’s perfect. There’s a slight chance they chose to book their hotel rooms another way  but they would just be able to respond and tell you that. (my friend did it cheaper with hotels.com than the block)
