I would probably do a business card insert, you can get them on VP pretty cheap. I’d likely put something along the lines of “Due to XXX Convention please consider booking your room early as availibility is limited. Hotel blocks have been set up at XYZ Hotel. 1800-555-1234”

@IowaDDS13:  That’s a great idea! Or even just print out a piece of paper and insert it in the envelope if you want to go super cheap.

I like the business card idea, but also try getting this out by word of mouth. Some people aren’t going to get a room in time, expect that. Have a backup hotel in mind (probably farther away) for those who didn’t get in on the one you’re blocking.

Enclosure is the traditional way, but alot of my brides (i design wedding stationary) take advantage of the room on the back of the std if it’s a one sided design. 🙂

What does your Save the Date currently look like?  Our’s is a postcard with “Save the Date!” and the date on the front.  The back gives the location.  And then in tiny print on the back, it says, “Need more information? Visit our website at __________.”  Perhaps you could have a thing in tiny print that says something like, “Know for sure you want to come?  Hotel rooms are limited due to an event in town.  Consider booking your hotel early.  Visit our website for more details.”  Or something like that.

Ours is in an area where hotels sell out as well. We have 3 reserved (since all will be from out of town).

I put a note on the save the date at the bottom that said “Hotel blocks are now available. We suggest reserving your room as early as possible. Hotels often sell out due to university events. Contact us or visit http://www.ourwebsite.com for details.”

I am going to be keeping a close eye on the blocks as well.
