Hey, I’m planning to set aside some rooms in our hotel for the wedding day. How do you estimate how many rooms to block? I’m planning on having approx 125-150 people at the wedding, everyone is out-of-town as it’s a “destination” wedding. Any help would be greatly appreciated! THANKS!!!

i blocked one room per househould that i expected to come. make sure in your contract with the hotel there are no penalties for not enough bookings.

I used hotelplanner.com to reserve the block of rooms for my wedding in May. This is a free service to get a low rate on your block of rooms and to have any negotiating done if needed. The good news that I was so excited about was I received a cash rebate from hotelplanner after the wedding and a suite upgrade! Just thought I would share since it made my hotel blocking experience so much easier and more time to focus on other wedding tasks. Good luck!

oh and to add to kitzy’s response…there were no penalties for not using the estimated rooms and no money down to hold the block.
