If I can't fly, let me sing. Or, in other words if I can't be in Disney, let me talk about it !

Hi and welcome!!
Congratulations on your son's forthcoming wedding!!
All my guests stayed at either BLT or AKV as I paid for them using my DVC points.
I think we have brides on here who have guests staying at S/D, other WDW resorts and also off property.
Let us know how the planning progresses.

Welcome!! My guests are staying wherever they choose. We are assuming most will stay at Disney resorts or off property.

Welcome! We stayed at the Caribbean beach resort (A Disney Moderate resort) and we set up a grand gathering through Disney to link all of our reservations so our rooms would be close together. You can book a room block through Disney too, we just opted not to because the free dining promotion was out during our stay and it was a better deal than what Disney was offering us.

I did a room block for rooms in Boardwalk, Coronado Springs, and All Star Movies. They are staying in the room block or booking their own.

I literally just saw that after I commented.
Do you have to book 10 rooms (or did I make that up) and then you get a discount on those rooms?
Thanks xx

Yes, when I was working on a room block through Disney leisure travel they told me that at least one night during our stay we had to guarantee 10 rooms.

To book your own room block you just contact Disney leisure travel and they'll help you out. They took my info and a coordinator got back to me with a price, I thought it was too high and said my guests probably wouldn't go for it so she gave me a better price. Ultimately we didn't book through them because free dining came out and it was a better deal for our guests.
