We're having our wedding on November 12th (yay!) in eastern Long Island, NY. It's not super far for some relatives, but some will have a drive - approx 30 minutes-2 hours away depending. It's at a catering venue with an inn and tavern - so we will have an evening wedding, with after-party at the tavern and hotel rooms all onsite to make it as easy as possible (and so no one has to drive with an open bar!), with breakfast the next morning.
The venue holds the room block we have on the hotel only up to 60 days prior to the wedding. So, instead of sending out the invites 2 months in advance (by then the hold will be lifted!), we're sending them 3 months in advance with a month to RSVP, so that anyone who wants to reserve a room can do so until the hold expires. If anyone RSVPs to us after that, it's not a big deal to us, a hotel room just may not be available.
I'm just curious if anyone else has experienced this? Is this too far in advance? I'm just trying to give everyone lots of notice in case they need to make plans and comply with the hotel block contract at the same time
