If you are going to be blocking hotel rooms for out of town guests, then it is standard practice to send them a note or a letter explaining how they can make a reservation.
For your convenience, we have created a sample letter in Microsoft Word that you can download for free and adjust to your needs.
For those of you who do not have MS Word, just copy and paste the following to make any changes.
Hotel Room Block Information For Smith/Franklin Wedding

One thing to note is that there is going to be a large city-wide event the same weekend as our wedding so hotel rooms will sell fast. If you do intend on coming (and we’re hoping you do), please reserve before [Date] at the following hotel:
