    jerseybee1423 :  I would leave it with just a link to the website. You don’t want to treat your guests as if they couldn’t figure things out without your help. If it is a resort, I am sure they will know that it will book up for summer.

    Your guests are adults and will be able to figure out their accomodations.  If they miss the block, I’m sure there are other nearby resorts/hotels they can book at.

    jerseybee1423 :  I totally get it. But the reality is that whether or not you put in the note won’t actually change anyone’s behavior. Those who like to book right away will and those that procrastinate still will, even with the note. There’s no winning, so you might as well save yourself the trouble and skip it

    What PPs have said. We sent our Save-the-Dates out in late January, for an October wedding. There were about 10 people who booked right away. The day that the block expired, we were still fielding questions from guests asking if this “really was the cheapest room.” 

    If there are certain people who you really want or need to stay in the blocked hotels, like parents or wedding party members, you can either put a note in their Save-the-Date, or reserve the room for the VIPs yourself.

    Save The Dates are just that – a notification of when to start thinking about time off, etc. Adding inserts about anything is overkill; save that for the invitations. People will book or not.
