I sent out my save the dates! Now I have 75 people to contact.
Crossing my fingers that my vendors are able to switch days and it's just a minor hiccup.
I wonder if I can get compensated or get something free for this hassle? Any suggestions?
Wow!! I can totally empathize with you right now. The fiance and I booked our day and time with The ROYAL through the online booking forum a year and a month in advance. When we started working with the wedding coordinator she kept asking us to pick a day and we explained that we already had one with a confirmation number and everything (this is like 9 months out). She still was acting confused saying she didn't see one so we sent the original email we got with the confirmation and deposit receipt. She then lets us know (without apologizing...by the way) that we will have to pick a different day or go earlier in the day because now at this point there was already another wedding going on at this time. We had picked the date 2-12-11 (which we think is cool and the number 12 has significant meaning in my family) so we really didn't want to change it. They suggested we just get married the day before or after or next door...like it "really easy to change these things." Needless to say, we sucked it up and just took the earlier time, but our WC asked us to write a formal compliant (in writing) and you know what we got out of it? Hot Appetizers at the Cocktail Hour!! WTF?!? REALLY?!?! YOU'RE KIDDING RIGHT?!?! Nope...that was their compromise!
If I was you though and you really don't find significance with the date, I would change to avoid the concert. Most of my guests are scheduled to arrive two days in advance, so it would have worked out fine, we just didn't want to give up that date!
