How many out of town guests are you inviting and how many do you think will come?  is there a minimum of rooms you would need to block?  Ultimately I would say this is an easy thing to let go.  It’s nice for the guests but you don’t have to have it especially if it is causing stress.

i would say pass, your hotel guests should know how to book their own hotels, it’s not like you’re paying for their hotels so they can choose/ pick on their own.

i do agree with the above that you should provide a listing of hotels nearby so guests can make their own decision re: prices, location, etc.

Do you have a wedding website? I put a little information card in our invites referring them to the website for hotel and other information. I am sending ours out tomorrow, so don’t worry, you aren’t running behind. Most brides wait 6 to 8 weeks prior to the wedding before sending out their invites, so you still have a bit of time.

If a hotel makes you pay for rooms if guests don’t book enough and you aren’t sure how many are going to book the rooms, I would just list local hotels in an insert on your invitation.  We had rooms booked at a local hotel and very few people actually used that location so I’m glad that we weren’t on the hook for rooms that weren’t booked.

You don’t say where you live but March is the off season for weddings and a lot of tourism so the hotels might not charge a lot for a room.
