Hilton has teamed up with Samantha Goldberg, celebrity wedding planner and star of the Style Network's Whose Wedding is it Anyway, to create a new wedding planning Website, 'Guestiquette'.

The online wedding resource will shed light on tricky wedding guest etiquette topics, provide guidance on working with a hotel, offer tips on making out of town guests feel welcome, and offer access to the Hilton Family's signature online group booking tool at HiltonFamily.com/guestiquette for brides to book and manage their guest hotel accommodations online.

Samantha Goldberg, wedding planning expert, is the voice of Guestiquette. The website covers topics such as:

  • "I'm Engaged, Now What" – Help in getting started planning a wedding including tools for guests' hotel accommodations, an easy-to-use budget tracker, tools for guest hotel accommodations, a straightforward, manageable timeline and more.
  • "How to Speak Guestiquette" – Answers to common guest etiquette questions that trip up many couples while planning their wedding.
  • "Making Guests Feel Welcome" – Simple ways to help guests feel appreciated for being present on the big day, including tips from real brides and advice on what should go into welcome letters and baskets.
"Tough questions about modern-day guest etiquette threaten to trip up every bride and groom: Who gets to invite guests and who doesn't? What do I pay for and what do my guests pay for?" says Samantha Goldberg, celebrity wedding planner and television personality. "The language of ‘Guestiquette' is tricky, so I teamed up with the Hilton Family of Hotels to provide brides and grooms with this much-needed, helpful advice for planning their weddings."

Brides also will have access to the Hilton Family of Hotels' online group booking tool, which allows today's busy but tech-savvy brides and grooms to plan, book and manage their wedding blocks (five to 25 rooms) online with real-time inventory across the Hilton Family of Hotels, with 24/7 booking access. After brides or grooms book their wedding block online, they receive a call from the catering or sales team of the hotel offering additional assistance and support.

The couple also receives immediate access to a tool that allows them to review which guests have booked rooms and which guests need a gentle reminder, as well as a tool that lets them create a personalized Webpage for their wedding and include a direct link to allow guests to book their room in the couple's hotel block.

"At Hilton Family of Hotels, we've seen an increase of 211 percent in brides who plan, book and manage their wedding room block online through Hilton's group booking tool," said Bob Brooks, vice president – eSales Strategy and Performance, Hilton Hotels Corporation. "In addition to providing couples with easy online tools to book and manage their wedding blocks, our new Web site, Guestiquette, provides them with guidance on the ins and outs of working with a hotel and making out-of-town guests feel not only welcome, but right at home."

About the Hilton Family Online Group Booking Tool Currently, the Online Group Booking Tool is available at all North American Hilton Family of Hotels and will soon be extending its online planning and booking tools to Hilton Family hotels in the U.K. Online group booking is available only at participating locations and is subject to availability at participating hotels.
