Lastly, Hotel Blocking:

Marriott Vanderbilt is able to offer fantastic options and incentives if you book both your guestrooms and rehearsal dinner or brunche with them. They generally do hold Brides accountable to pick up 80% of their contracted guestroom block. If the Bride also books their rehearsal dinner, brunch or reception with them, they have the option to provide a courtesy block for up to 15 guestrooms/night based upon availability. Marriott tries to provide our Brides with discounted/upgraded suites on the evening of the Wedding based on availability.

We absolutely love the Marriott at Vanderbilt.  Their dedicated staff works tirelessly to ensure your day is perfect for not only you but for all of your guests as well! From the first time you walk in the door, you will be greeted with a smile and taken into the Marriott family.
