I blocked out a number of rooms back in February and our wedding is October 3, 2014. I included little cards with the save the dates when I mailed them in February informing everyone of the hotel information so they could book early. About 8 people did, but the rest have not. There are several couples I know that live out of state that I gave friendly reminders to for the past few months and they just brushed it off. Now I find out that our block of hotel rooms is full, and the rest of the hotel is full as well... zero vacancy for the night of our wedding. I knew this was a possibility so I notified everyone as early as I could without coming across as pushy.
Now there are no rooms left at the hotel...there are other hotels in the area but none that will provide a shuttle to our venue like the original hotel is going to. Do I inform the guests of this and try to accommodate them at a different hotel? Or have I done enough already and now they're on their own...finding their own hotel room, finding their own transportation to and from the wedding...etc. I feel bad but I also feel like I've done plenty to assure these people have hotel rooms for that night and they didn't take up the offers when they should have.
