I'm glad you're feeling better!! However...now I am freaking out! My wedding is two months before yours and only 4 rooms have been booked (all my immediate family). So now, of course, I'm thinking that the resort is gonna book up for our weekend too...

...Off to e-mail my TA!

Thanks! Our dog is totally our fur-child. He's a labradoodle. He's huge and my best pal. :-)

Thanks Linds. :)
So glad you're feeling a bit better about it. I'm sure it will all work out and Amyb's advice seems to be very thorough and some great solutions. I can totally understand the stress that situation must be creating for you. Just sending positive vibes your way that it will all sort out.

My TA called FI yesterday and told him that the hotel (Azul Beach) is sold out the week of our wedding. I still have atleast 15 guests who have not booked. 2 of them are my aunt and cousin (the only extended family I have coming). I am so angry at them, the resort for not alerting my TA when the hotel was close to capacity and my TA for not finding out it was filling up as she promised she would.

I was fighting back tears at work yesterday (right before a meeting - super) b/c I am so emotional over my family - majority isn't coming and the ones i thought i could count on couldn't put a $100 deposit down. I just feel so let down by family/hotel/TA.

Long story short my FI completely lost it on TA (who has been on vacation/out of country twice since signing contract) which he brought up and questioned if the hotel told her but she was out of town. She supposedly has been in talks with the owner of the hotel to see if we can get 3 rooms...no clue as to where they are pulling them from or if they can even get them. I also just wrote a very "stern" email to my WC who hasn't responded to an email from me in over 2 1/2 weeks letting her know how disappointed I am.

I don't want to be a crazy bride but I just feel that we should have known the hotel was filling up if they promised they would tell us! Grrr...ok sorry to start the day off on a sour note.

WAAAAAA (said like snookie from jersey shore)
First, Sorry to hear about all that! It makes me paranoid when we finally get around to booking but at least I know what you ladies are going thru!
Second - Excellent use of a Snooki reference!!!

ALL right all my fellow Azul Beach brides!!!

 

I just got off the phone with my travel agent. The reason there are no rooms available is because AB just pulled them all. Apparently, this has to do with the construction they're planning for 2011. I know Wendy (taylorwd) mentioned this earlier in the thread...apparently, it's going to be a bigger deal than we all thought. My TA has inquiries out to all his contacts at AB to find out how intrusive the construction will be, but he thinks this will have a major affect on bookings. We have 10 rooms reserved, but may need as many as 15, and he thinks it might be hard to get the extra 5.

 

So...I'm not panicking. I'm not panicking. I figure if I say it enough, it'll be true.

 

I should know something by Monday or Tuesday...if it's going to be a huge hassle to get rooms, or there's going to be massive construction going on around the time of the wedding, I'm going to book elsewhere. Which breaks my heart, because I'm in love with Azul Beach. But...I also don't want to wake up to drills and hammers every day.

Thanks for this info. I just emailed my TA and asked her to look into it for the 2nd time now....originally she was told there is no construction. The hotel's facebook page says there is no construction either. So shady!

 

Oh well...I am sure it will work out in the end. Keep us posted on what your TA finds out!!

Super sketchy! Yeah, my TA said he talked to one of their sales guys, and there will definitely be construction. The sales guy didn't know how intrusive it would be, but that's the reason no rooms are available. The positive to this is...at least I'm finding out more than 6 months before the wedding!

Wow you have a good TA that she did all that for you!!! My TA had a contact at Karisma - here is her info:

©line Pitiot
Regional Sales Executive
El Dorado Spa Resorts & Hotels and Azul Hotels
Tel: 011 52 998 872 84 50
twitter.com/Kidga
cpitiot@karismahotels.com


I would also suggest you tell your Karisma Miami coordinators for the details on this construction.

Oh girls, I bet they wont have even started construction by the time you get married anyways! I know how "island time" works....

Thinking good thoughts for you all :)

Very true. She is looking into it now. From what my TA has figured so far there isn't another wedding. Its like what Amy mentioned about a tour operator coming in and scooping up the rooms. She believes it was a Canadian travel agency that bought them. Which really isn't the worst thing in the world because it means people can book through them if they have to.

I am in the end of MArch so I wonder if the construction will effect me. I told the TA I want it in writing from the VP of Sales she is going to speak with today that there will not be planned construction going on.

You all are a lifeline. :)

Also lolo....I love the pics.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort? 
    • Hello Everyone, Share your favorite wedding venues. And also give me a Solution. I choose Wedding Venues in mobile al the Anne-marie cottage.
