We just put it on our website, but like you said, we’re not sure a lot of our guests are actually visiting the website.  I’m curious to see what other bees say.

I included it in the accomodation card with the invitations.

That’s a great question, and one that will be important when we FINALLLY get engaged! Everyone will be coming from out of town and will need a place to stay. I”m looking forward to the answers to this one.Smile

I don’t know that you should have to tell your guests to book a room.  It should be understood that if they’re planning on attending your wedding, then they’ll need to get a room. The only thing you really can do is put an accommodation card in the invitiation.  That’s what we did.

When you send out the invites, include a card that tells them how and wehn to book.

I’m going the route of all online frankly. But for the few less tech savvy guests we have included hotel information inserts in which we say please book by date to insure group rate. Or something to that effect.

I wouldn’t worry too much because if you have the block set up the rooms are there!

But I do understand the anxiety! I wish people who knew they were def going would book their room already!

Hey fellow August bride! It’s weird they are already pushing you to have people book rooms for your August wedding! Now I’m nervous LOL.

Our wedding is also in a hotel and they unblock the rooms 1 month out as well. What we are doing is making our RSVP date 6 weeks before the wedding so that when people RSVP ‘yes’, we can contact them about the hotel block as well as other things like the rehearsal dinner and next-day brunch.

We also put the info on our website which was printed on our STD. And a lot of people have already booked their rooms believe it or not! But we realize there will also be al ot of people who want to wait until the last second to book their rooms, so we will remind them once they RSVP and then it’s up to them to book, out of our hands.

We just put it on the website.  And we’ve been telling people as we’ve been talking to them.  My mom has been getting the word out to her and my dad’s fam as well.
