So I have about 10 family members out of state. Our wedding is 10/6. They will probably be making a long weekend of our wedding. Is it appropriate to only reserve a group rate for 10/6-10/7 and let them worry about the rest if they’d like to make a long weekend? Or should I do the group rate from 10/5-10/8? So confused, what is proper etiquette?

I would just do the longer time period. It doesn’t cost you anything and that way your guests get the discounted rate for all of the nights if they want to come for more nights.

I agree, do the whole long weekend just in case! You want to give them the best rate you can, especially if they are planning on staying longer!

I did a group block for my wedding and I did Thursday to Tuesday, with the wedding on Saturday. There normally is no obligation on filling those rooms, just a group rate, and ensuring they have rooms.
