Accommodating Your Guests by Cindy Papish Gerber
f you’ve already selected the exact time, date, and place to get married, you need to start planning how to accommodate your guests. After all, many of them will be traveling by plane, train, and automobile just to attend your wedding. “Setting up room blocks for out-oftown guests has become a standard practice,” says Martine BoursiquotLaConte, a certified wedding planner with This Modern Love Events, LLC. Depending on your head count, you can select several hotels with varying price points. The further ahead you book, the better chance you will have of securing the best deals. BoursiquotLaConte recommends “checking in every few weeks with the reservation manager to ensure that you have enough rooms in your block.” This matters most if your date coincides with high season, holidays, graduations, festivals, or an area convention. Corey Schwartz and Carolyn Siegal’s wedding is planned for Columbus Day weekend in VT.
