hi bees! I’ve posted here about my Destination Wedding in europe from the US a few times before. I have a question about hotel blocks…
so my fi and I have fallen in love with two hotels. One is actually below our reception venue but has terrible reviews for it being super loud until 2 sometimes 4am because it has a live music bar attached. Because my in laws are older and really just because this would piss me off too, we’ve looked elsewhere.
Our other favorite actually doesn’t offer a block. They offer the option to buy all hotel rooms now and as our guests check in the day of the wedding (a little under a year from now) we would be credited. That is a LOT of money to put down for close to 25 rooms for a Friday-Monday, way too much. We’re buying our immediate families rooms so that’s about 6 or 8 rooms that we have no problem paying for but 25 rooms is beyond our means.
Other hotels we’ve liked are either way too expensive for our guests and ourselves or we just simply don’t like and/or aren’t available our date.
My question is, is it ok to book our hotel and our families and inform our guests that we will be at said hotel but there is no block or do the hotel that is with our venue but is super noisy? Any suggestions welcome! Thank you bees 😊
