Courtesy Room Block vs Guaranteed Room Block
Hotels have different policies on the number of rooms they reserve for a wedding room block. This includes what they require from you as the host. In the customized room block proposal you receive from us, we outline all the hotel block options, including which are courtesy room wedding blocks and which are guaranteed/contract blocks.
To receive our free service, please note that courtesy room blocks must include at least 20 rooms per night per hotel. Guaranteed blocks require at least 10 rooms per night per hotel.
Courtesy Room Definition
Courtesy room blocks are particularly popular for weddings. A courtesy block demands no financial obligation, which saves you money if fewer rooms are booked than you expected. In other words, you won’t have to pay for any unbooked rooms yourself. However, those rooms are not guaranteed to you, so others outside your party can still reserve those rooms if demand is high.
Guaranteed Room Block Definition
With a guaranteed room block, the hotel rooms are dedicated to you and can’t be booked by others outside your party. These blocks are ideal for high-demand destinations and dates. However, your group will be required to book a set percentage of rooms, also known as a hotel attrition rate. If that percentage of rooms aren’t booked, you could be charged for them.
When Should You Block Hotel Rooms for a Wedding?
Our recommendation for when you should block hotel rooms for a wedding is 9-12 months in advance of your wedding date. The minimum turnaround time is three months, but that likely results in fewer hotel options and less time for your guests to book in your block. More time provides for greater availability for your wedding room block, especially if the wedding takes place in the summer or on holidays.
