If you have family and friends coming in from another town or state, you might have to book hotel rooms. You might think it’s as easy as calling up the hotel and giving them your credit card number, but these tips will ensure that you don’t have any problems down the road.
Look for the Attrition Clause
This clause means that if you book hotel room and guests don’t show up, you’re still responsible for paying for those rooms. If this is not really in your budget, you’re going to want to find a hotel that doesn’t have an attrition clause.
Book a Hotel Located Near the Events
If you’re not going to provide transportation, you’ll want to book a hotel that is near the ceremony and reception venues. This way, it reduces the costs your guests will have to pay. You should also make sure the hotel is near other places your guests might need, such as dining establishments and grocery stores.
When you book a block of rooms, you’re going to want to check back frequently before the wedding to make sure that they’re ready to go. Mistakes can happen and the last thing you want is your guest checking in to find that someone else is already in his or her room.
When you do your due diligence, things will go more smoothly on your wedding day and your guests will really appreciate it.
