one more idea here, did you try getting in touch with another WC? I'd think they'd have some way of securing rooms for you, especially because they wouldn't want to lose your business.

They also didn't tell me until I called after finding out about one guest who tried to book and was quoted for GP not Royal... We have been telling guests to book, but I was told that they would have plenty of rooms through year end so to be sure and have everyone book by the holidays.... I am kind of panicking here... It has been one incident after another with the WC's at the Royal, and while my FI would really like to call the whole thing off at this point and get married at home, I can't do that to the 20% who have booked hotel and airfare. It is really looking like our only alternative is to move our wedding date, UGGHHHHH! I feel horrible about having to move our date and want offer to pay for any airfare change fees for our guests, I don't know what else I can do.... And to add to the fun, my WC has been on maternity leave for a month and won't be back until January, JOY.
Please share if you think our guest would be offended, would you if you were a guest and got a date moved notice with all the details? FI does NOT want to move everything to the GP and it sounds like that will be sold out soon too....
Anyone else having this problem with communication, or lack of communication, I am seriously at my breaking point with the entire staff at the Royal!
