We were invited to a Destination Wedding that had two hotels blocked. It’s nice because it gives people a choice, especially if one is more luxurious and one is more economical. Some people will want to make it a vacation and pick the nicer one whereas the rest will want to get in, get out, and will pick the cheaper one.

@fall13bride:  I think it would be helpful. If it’s too much text, you can include both hotels’ addresses/phone numbers/URLs on your information card and then add a “For more information and directions, visit [insert URL]”. Then direct them to your wedding website.

I have rooms blocked at two different hotels, for two reasons. It gives the guests options and the hotel that we are staying at after the wedding is a litte but smaller (it is a suite-style hotel) and so in case it fills up, there is another option available. 

It’s not necessary to block rooms at two hotels, it’s just what we decided to do. Good luck deciding!

We did two — each at a different price point to accommodate more budgets. I think your options sound great!

I put directions from the church to the reception in our invite suite, but all other directions on our wedding website. With everyone having GPS devices and smartphones these days, most people have their own source of directions anyway. 🙂

We have 3 hotels blocked (all the same chain but at different price points).  We also included the info on our Save-The-Date Cards and invitations.

@fall13bride:  I’d recommend booking multiple blooks so people have options. We booked 4 diff hotel blocks for our wedding ranging between Boutique Hotel down to a 3 star chain hotel so that the large families had options. We posted all the information on our wedding website and on our invites directed them there for more information.

We have several hotels that are by our venue (actually our home), and we have a significant amount of out of towners.  I have blocked at two of the hotels, but have included 3 hotels and a KOA (we have a lot of camper/RVers) as well on the wedding website. 🙂

 

Edited to say: I am a frugal person I would look around anyway, but its nice to not have to look hard if there are several options. 🙂
