Do you think it's necessary to block off rooms for a wedding? I am inviting around 130 people to my wedding and everyone is local. I am getting married at The Manor and when I called the Residence Inn Marriot (next to The Manor) they not only seemed expensive to me, but also they said we were responsible to pay for 80% of the rooms if they didn't fill up. I wanted to block off rooms in case anyone wanted to drink and not drive home after, but I can't be 100% sure anyone is going to do that, and I dont want to be responsible to pay for all those rooms in case no one ends up getting a room.
Me and my FI aren't even going to be staying at a hotel, as we will be getting ready at our parents hosue before, and then after just going back to our house, since we are most comfortable in our own bed.
I'm strongly leaning towards not blocking any rooms, but does that seem tacky?
Any advice is appreciated!
