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.
