IMHO, friend or not, she took on the duty of being your TA, so it's her responsibility to fix this for you. No need to get mad if you don't want to, just explain to her that this is her field and you trust her to do her job. She may have some TA abilities where she can book you even though sites like Apple cannot. What I have heard from other ladies is that when you are over booked, they will put you in a nearby hotel, like the Hyatt next door. You will still be part of the All Inclusive program and get to use Dreams facilities. It is a little bit of a walk through the sand (the back part), but I don't think more than 1 or 2 minute walk from the front (down the hotel strip). But this is only if you are overbooked. If they end up initially booking you at the Hyatt (instead of overbooking at Dreams and then putting you up in the Hyatt), then you probably can't use Dreams without a day pass. What I would do is email (or CALL!) your WC (Cecilia or Claudia) and explain your situation. It seems that part of your deposit went through, so you may still be able to stay at Dreams for part of your stay. Your WC may be able to swing for at least you to use Dreams facilities since you are having your wedding and thought you had booked (not your fault). I'm not sure about your guests thought (hopefully they can at least come for your wedding, I've hear them waiving the day pass fee for guests who came an hour before the wedding and left at the end of the reception).

I still have 3 couples that have not booked and they are out of luck. That would be just great if I don't even have a room for my own wedding. I am soooooo upset right now. Help, has anyone else had this happen? I have read nightmares about brides and their guests showing up to Dreams and they have to book them in other hotels because they are sold out. How does this happen when I planned ahead with my travel agent. The worst part is that it is a friend of mine so I can't even get upset with her!!!!! Help...I just want to cry.
