A hotel room block is a reservation of 10+ hotel rooms. The perk of a room block is that they save you time, money and ensure that all of your guests will have a place to stay during the event you are hosting. On average, group rates are 15% to 40% lower than standard rates. This deal is already sweeter.
The sooner the better, but we suggest before those Save The Dates go out! This gives you and your guests enough time to decide, plan and most importantly, get excited.
Well, that's for us to help you with! Your guests from out of town may not know the area very well and are trusting you about where to stay. Try to make sure they are not more than a 20-30 minute drive from the venue (the rule of thumb is no more than 10 miles).
Bonus: Find hotels within walking distance and your guests will love you even more.
Much like travel agents, our industry certifications allow us to serve as an outside sales team for the hotel industry, which gives us advantages to find low pricing on a hotel room block for your guests.
Our service is free to our clients. There is no onboarding fee, no hidden fees. The hotels pay us a commission based on your block, once your room block is fulfilled after the event.

There are certain key words you'll need to understand when reviewing the contract terms for a hotel block. Be on the lookout for these terms:
We always recommend that you list your selected hotel on your wedding website. Some of our clients also send inserts in their invitations with the details. That way, all your guests will be well informed and can easily click to learn more about the accommodation options available. If you have guests coming from out of town, it's also a nice gesture to include additional information on how to get to the venue or if transportation from the hotel will be provided.
