    Ours was one month ahead (Feb 29 for Mar 31 wedding), so I picked 4-6 weeks.

    May 27th was the last day for our June 23rd wedding.  That annoyed me, but I guess I understand!

    • Wedding: April 2012

    Our cutoff was 2 weeks prior to wedding. We had 40 rooms. We still had guest who hadn’t booked their room 1 week prior & the hotel offered the discounted rate to them. It might of helped that we sold out their hotel for 4 nights.

    @fishbone:  I had 2 room blocks in Baltimore and both released rooms at 1 month prior.  Have you asked the hotels if there is a conference that weekend?  I couldn’t book the hotel I wanted on a Saturday in November because there was a big conference in town.  Are you calling the hotels directly or calling the group sales office For the larger chains like Marriott?

    @fishbone:  Have you tried calling the Marriott group sales office – 301-820-6237?  Also, the franchised hotels don’t book through the group sales offices, so I had to contact the Courtyard in Harbor East directly.
