Perfect Service to Help You Plan Your Wedding!, An Eventective User from Minneapolis

This is an especially great resource if you have having a lot of out-of-town guests. I called the Minneapolis CVB several weeks ago, first to ask if there was any major convention or event going on the weekend of my 'event.' Then they asked what type of event I was planning, so I broke down and told them. Lo and behold, the representative said she would transfer me to the CVB's 'wedding coordinator.' This woman was a godsend! She immediately asked for key info about my event – the dates, how large a space I would need, type of reception – and most importantly, how many hotel rooms I would need. (This is the key here because the goal of any CVB is to fill hotel rooms!) Then, the wedding coordinator said she would create a blast email to all the hotels in the area, effectively putting my event 'out for bid.' Since all the hotels would know other hotels got the same information, it creates a bit of competition. Sure enough, hotels started calling and emailing ME, instead of the other way around! They gave me great room rates, room blocks, reception space info, etc. I settled on a large downtown business hotel that offered me room rates of only $109 with free guest parking, and a full reception package at $43 per person, including an open-bar cocktail hour, hors d'oeuvres, champagne toast, seated dinner and free parking for the guests. I even negotiated a lower food and beverage minimum and a $3 per person discount on the wedding package. I would have never thought to even call this hotel, because it is upscale, and I thought it would be way out of our budget! I'd urge all brides to call their local CVB – especially if you tell them you need a block of hotel rooms. They also can give you free city guides for out-of-towners, maps, etc."
