How Many Rooms to Block for Weddings?

Estimating the number of rooms you’ll need all depends on your guest list and your venue. Some good questions to ask yourself include: 

  • Are you expecting out-of-town guests? 
  • Will any guests be sharing rooms? 
  • Is your venue in a remote location or a destination where people might prefer to spend the night? 
  • Will the wedding couple or host(s) be staying there? 

While there’s no exact formula to determine a set number of rooms for you, we’d recommend making a somewhat conservative guess and encouraging guests to book early. Most hotels will add rooms after your initial block is fully booked, if they have the space available.
