Many weddings will set up a room block securing discounted reservations with a certain number of rooms and set aside until usually a month before the wedding. 

If you choose not to do so, you could list them out like the above or just make a statement of ‘Accommodations are available at various properties.  Visit (area chamber of commerce or visitors bureau website) for more information.’

Hope that helps a little!

We listed the one hotel with our room block. It actually isn’t much of a discount, but it guarantees that until June 9, no one but people who indicate they are my guest can book a room. If people want to stay elsewhere, they can do that, I’m just not coordinating that. As far as I’m concerned, helping with accommodations is a courtesy, not a requirement. Do what you can, but don’t stress too much.

I’ve seen it where the bride has contacted two hotels for room blocks and discounts (one higher end and one budget) and listed those options for guests. It will also be easier for you to know that most guests are in one or two hotels for directions, if you are providing transportation, out of town bags, etc.

I’ve seen it done both ways; either a list of nearby hotels or just one hotel with block reserved for guests

We blocked rooms at one hotel and listed that on the accomodations card. The card also directed people to our website for more info where we listed 4 other nearby hotels (no blocked rooms).

We called the hotels ahead of time and “block booked” rooms, meaning that we reserved a block of rooms under our name, which our guests can book at a special rate. If our guests don’t book those rooms by a particular date, they’re released.
