    I blocked for Saturday night and about 1/3 as many for Friday night – mostly for the wedding party, my parents etc. I agree that it depends on a) how far people are traveling from and b) the attrition policy at the hotel (do you have to pay if they don’t fill or are the rooms just released on x date).

    If you block Friday and Saturday, your guests don’t have to book both nights, but they will have the option to.

    If you have people traveling into town for the wedding – block off friday as well because some people dont want to travel on teh day of the event (and sometimes friday flights are cheaper).  We blocked ours for friday and sat and ended up having to add thurs because so many people wanted to make it a long weekend vacation!

    We blocked a whole bunch for the Saturday, and about half as many for the Friday night for the folks who are coming from a long distance away. We figure not everyone will come the night before for a 2pm wedding, but we will need some rooms for rehearsal dinner guests and folks from out-of-province.
