When you're planning your wedding, there are a lot of things to worry about. You have to make sure that all of the details are taken care of and that everything is perfect, from the ceremony space to hiring a wedding videographer or photographer down to the decorations.
However, there's one thing that can help keep your guests happy and make their stay at your wedding more convenient: reserving hotel blocks. What is a hotel block? And how do you reserve one?
Deciding if a Hotel Block Makes Sense for your Wedding
When you reserve a block of rooms at one or more hotels, you're essentially reserving the right to block out some rooms at specific prices. The hotel will try to fill those rooms with guests who pay full price, but your guests will have first come, first serve access to a reduced rate.
Getting a hotel block makes sense if you are having a destination wedding in Ireland or if you have guests travelling from a distance to attend your big day. Vendors, like your wedding videographer, can also use this discounted block rate!
There are so many reasons why we suggest getting a hotel block, but here are just a few:
A better guest experience
Keeping guests all in one place
A hotel block also allows guests that are visiting the area for the first time or family that hasn't seen each other in a long time another chance to meet up and do activities together aside from your wedding.
We hope this guide has been helpful in helping you decide if this is the right choice for your wedding or party; we know it can be an overwhelming task when starting out but don't worry—we got your back!
