While we’ve blocked off 10 rooms for our guests, I know they can still likely get a better rate using sites like travelocity or orbitz. Our older guests might not consider this as a possibility. Is it rude to suggest checking other sites under the hotel info on our wedding website? Like this:
group rate info
*Feel free to compare rates at travel websites like priceline or travelocity.

Helpful suggestions are never rude.

Not at all. In fact, on our website, we had literally stated: “The group rate is XX; however, we recommend that you check with expedia or travelocity for deals that might give you an even better rate.”
We ended up not doing our event at that hotel, so now our website lists suggested hotel information but also says something to the effect of “We also recommend that you try a private home rental via homeaway.com, especially if there are more than 2 people in your party, because shared rentals are usually the best deals around.”
ie, I think any advice you can give would be appreciated.

Not at all. You did a great job securing rooms for the guests, but more often than not there are better rates available. If I were a guest at your wedding, I would appreciate you trying to save me money.

I do not think that is rude at all – it is honest and helpful!

Not at all! That is exactly what we indicated on our wedding site and verbally communicated to others!

Thanks for the helpful advice! I will definitely do that, then.
