Apparently there’s a new trend: wedding crashers booking a room (in a wedding room block) to take advantage of the discount!
Just read this CNBC article for details.
I agree with the article: engaged couples should create a wedding website so invited guests can easily access important, logistical information. But there’s a hiccup: wedding crashers who know how to use google.
To avoid a crasher taking advantage of your room block, make sure to ask for a weekly report from the hotel. Check the names on your room block because the hotel can call the guest and confirm (or cancel the reservation).
