My wedding is set for exactly a year from today and we're going to have lots of out of towners coming up. I've started making calls to block off rooms at a hotel near Lee, NH (ideally Portsmouth) but have been hitting some major roadblocks.
Most of the hotels there apparently are run by the same company and will only block rooms 6 months prior - they hold off to ensure that they don't have a wedding booked in their space. 6 months seems a bit crazy to wait, since we need to be printing and sending out invitations.
Is this the norm? Any suggestions??
