Planning tools 101: hotel block comparison chart

We launched a comprehensive and totally customizable document of wedding planning spreadsheets in Google Drive if you're the type to get down with spreadsheets like I am. Now we're sharing a chart that will help you compare hotel blocks if you're planning to provide that option to your guests. Hotel blocks allow you to block out some rooms and room rates to help guests grab a good deal on a hotel room.

How I used Google Sheets to lay out my wedding floorplan

I readily admit that the hardest thing about my wedding day will be letting go of control of the entire thing. I wanted to have a hand in the layout of the rooms, even if I can't physically be there for the set up. I harnessed Google Sheets wedding planning: I made an approximate map of our venue and placed every table, chair, and decoration where I want it to be, setting the boxes up as squares and using a legend of 1 foot squared = 1 box. See how it was done!
