Room blocks at hotels are not the only part of planning for your guests that can be of benefit. With most lodging, you are able to set up a “block” of rooms, either agreed or contracted, but it allows your guests to book their overnight accommodations at a much lower rate due to the volume from one event. Same with airfare! With major airlines like Continental/United you are able to get a discounted rate by going through the airline directly and setting up an agreement for the number of flights. The main difference with this option is that guests will have to fly on the same flights. This is great for some families who may all be coming from the same location or for destination weddings. Remember, it is key to do as much as you can to make your wedding easy for your guests to attend. Google “Continental Group Travel” for more information.
