I'm a long time lurker but first time poster... My fiance and I are getting married in Northern CA this October (10/7). Everyone but one family (including us) is flying in for the wedding. October is high season for wine country so we quickly secured hotel blocks at three different hotels and sent out our save the dates a few months ago with our wedding website on the back that has info on accommodations. My concern is that we have to start releasing our rooms fairly soon. One hotel has a cut off of 6/6 and the other two are 8/6. We planned on sending our invites out 8 weeks in advance so no one feels B listed but at that point, we won't have any rooms held. Two of the hotels we have blocks at are already completely booked outside of the rooms we have and I know the other isn't far behind. We have talked extensively to our family/friends about booking early, and I don't want to nag them, but I'm not sure the best way to proceed with our invite timing. I'd hate for someone to get our invite, want to come, and then not have anywhere to stay... Also, our wedding website was on the back of our save the date and I have heard from several family members that the didn't ever flip the STD over to see it... Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
