Not sure where this post should go. I am helping my friends plan a wedding and they found a lovely boutiqe hotel for their wedding. Unfortunately, the hotel makes them pay for all of 64 rooms upfront if we want to have the run of the hotel to ourselves and will not all the guests to each book rooms through them. We have to manage a list and provide it to the hotel upon start of the festivities.
Obviously, we are not requiring guests to stay there, but for those who would like the convenience of just going upstairs at the end of the day or those travelling in from out of town, we want to offer rooms. Also, there is a huge cost associated with booking this many rooms so we would like to recoup some of the costs.
Has anyone done something like this? If so, how did you set it up? Any help is appreciated!
