When you should block hotel rooms for a wedding or any other occasion is pretty standard. The norm is 9-12 months in advance of your event date. The shortest turnaround time is three months. However, this likely results in fewer hotel options given the narrow window of time before the event, especially if the event takes place around the holidays or in the summer months.
We cannot quote pricing more than 12 months before the event, as hotels typically don’t release rates that far in advance.
We also recommend starting the process at least two months before you’d like to distribute the hotel block information to your guests.
