Wedding Disaster: location closing down....
Posted 25 March 2008 - 10:32 PM
To find out why read this article: Molokai Ranch Shuts Down (UPDATED 3PM 3/25) - The Molokai Times
So our wedding there is canceled - the GOOD NEWS is that they are planning on returning ALL of our deposits (and our guests) by next week. They have also made some recommendations for other locations (on different Hawaiian Islands).
FI and I made contact with those places today along with TA Dina and we are sorting through our options.
We have 35 guests booked at The Lodge, 17 of them have non-refundable airfare booked to Hawaii.
So, there goes our Molokai wedding, after 6 months of planning out every detail - down the drain - I think that is the most frustrating part - having to start over with the details!
This is a really big tragedy for many other people, much bigger than our wedding - the Lodge is the largest employer on the Island of Molokai so this sudden shut down will virtually crush the entire (already fragile) economy. I feel so sad for all those people that are losing their jobs and what is to come there
