@ashcolyer- The hotel block recommendation is great. I am getting married at the Columbia Ballroom in July, and am in the process of trying to block a hotel somewhere. Hopefully it's not too late!
I am living in South Florida right now, but am from Ohio... Many hotels in South Florida make the bride and groom pay a huge deposit when blocking rooms, and charge for unbooked rooms if no one stays in them. Did the Hampton Inn do anything like that? I'm finding South Florida is a VERY different place to get married, so I am unsure of what to expect.
