You will likely have a portion of your wedding guests coming in from out of town for your wedding. If you do, booking a block of hotel rooms is a great way to centralize your guests. Post COVID, one of the big trends we have been seeing is that it’s more about the wedding weekend as opposed to one event. People want to spend time with each other, whether it be for a quick breakfast, evening drink or hanging by the pool. A hotel room block is a great way to encourage community within your guests.
Here are some of the benefits of hotel room blocks for weddings:
1. Convenience for Guests
One of the biggest benefits of reserving a hotel room block is the convenience it offers to your guests. By having all of your guests stay in the same hotel, you eliminate the need for them to research and book their own accommodations. This is especially helpful if you have out-of-town guests who are not familiar with the area.
2. Better Rates
When you reserve a block of hotel rooms, you can often negotiate a better rate than if your guests were to book on their own. Hotels are often willing to offer group discounts or other perks to entice wedding parties to book with them. This can save your guests money, and make your wedding more affordable for everyone.
3. Easy Logistics
Having all of your guests in one hotel also makes logistics easier on the day of your wedding. You won’t have to worry about coordinating transportation to and from different hotels, or about guests arriving late because they got lost on the way to the ceremony.
4. More Time with Your Guests
When all of your guests are staying in the same hotel, it’s easier to spend time with them outside of the wedding events. You can organize a welcome reception or brunch the day after the wedding, and know that everyone will be in the same place.
5. Peace of Mind
Finally, reserving a hotel room block can give you peace of mind on your wedding day. You won’t have to worry about whether your guests made it to their accommodations safely, or if they’re running late because they got lost. By having everyone in the same place, you can relax and enjoy your special day.
Overall, reserving a hotel room block for your wedding guests can make planning your wedding easier, more affordable, and more enjoyable for everyone involved.
