lilyflowers :  Do you have a wedding website? Alternately, an announcement via Paperless Post or a personal phone call.

Do you have a wedding website? I would add the info on the site. And if you haven’t included the site on your invite, I would order a stamp and stamp the back of the envelope with the site URL.

Start emaling the guests who haven’t booked, enlist your Fiance and parents (if they are involved) and between all sides, you should be able to reach most people.

I’m prettttty sure you can open a sealed envelope by keeping it in the freezer for a few hours. you’ll need to get new glue to reseal them but it will save you the hassle! do a google search though…

lilyflowers :  have you called your hotel? You said the block you reserved is full but is the hotel?  A lot of times you can reserve another block of your first one fills.

Email, wedding website, phone calls to those that need rooms. Have you talked to the hotel to see if the have more rooms available?

This happened to me. Mainly because my hotel didn’t tell me when we booked the block with them that there was a rowing event that they had a group blocked off for as well. There was another hotel right next door that I was able to get a last minute block with, but it was super annoying. (this happened like a month before the wedding) The original hotel was apologetic but barely claimed any blame. We took hotel bags to both locations, but obviously I would have preferred for everyone to stay at the one hotel since after the wedding we went back there. AND there was a shuttle that went to the original hotel, so those at the second one had to walk through the parking lot (not too bad) to the other hotel. *sigh* I think it was like the only thing that went wrong during planning so I can’t be too upset. After what happened with the hotel, I basically got both sets of parents to help us reach out to family and friends to see if anyone hadn’t booked yet, and letting them know the new hotel info if needed. Basically just a call/text/email. Anything will do. We also had it on the wedding website in bold caps haha!

Use a warm iron to open the envelopes, then reseal. Put a hanky or cloth between the paper and envelope

Our room block filled up pretty quickly as well. My Fiance called the hotel and was able to add 10 more rooms, which were also all booked. After that happened, we made an announcement on our wedding website that the room block was full, but listed two other nearby hotels. Try talking to the hotel first and see if they are willing to add more rooms!

lilyflowers :  I would probably just mail them the updated hotel info separately with a note explaining. 

That might just be me though, I love writing letters haha

I’d contact the remaining people individually, either though an email, a separate mailing or a phone call.
