We recently did this for our July wedding. I thought it was important to have hotel information before we sent out our Save the Dates. No to mention, I was a little worried since our wedding is in downtown Boston during a holiday weekend. But we had no issues with getting a room block.

I blocked my rooms before i sent out my save the dates. That way i could have our information for them to start if they wanted.

We also just blocked rooms at a hotel. Different hotels will offer different “bonuses” for doing a wedding block (free bridal suite, free shuttle, free morning-after breakfast, etc.) so we wanted time to way all of these options, plus we wanted the hotel info to go in all Out of Town guests STDs. We also got a few people gift certificates to the hotel for Christmas!
