I would get the full details explained to you! Every TA is slightly different. We sent out our invites in early June, and our guests had to put a deposit (I think $200) on a room by July 15 to get our group rate. They then had to pay the balance by late November.
Something I learned, due to miscommunication: our guests were all charged their deposits on the same date July 15, no matter if they called June 1, or July 14. So this was really frustrating since people were wondering if their deposits had been accepted or not. Then the same thing happened for the balance payment. Some people called on September 1, and did not get charged til November 25! So this was frustrating since people though
t they would be charged the day to called to say "I am paying off my balance, here is my Visa number..." This caused huge confusion since people were waiting for their itineries, and statements of payment. Again, the TA did not inform us, and if I had my time back I would ask exactly how everything would be processed.
It's the TA's job to ensure you understand your contract, the timelines and to ensure your guests are treated well. Make sure you take notes, and understand it before you sign!
I am kinda freaking....Chris and I both work at a college in the Athletics dept. and the support staff are on STRIKE!!! With both of us on a reduced income, I am hoping it ends sooner rather than later..or we are going to have to start axing a few of our private events we planned. (That and I have only done 2 days on the picket line, and I am ready to lose it!!!)
PS>....whoever said the shoes were the worst to find...I SO know what you mean! Dress...easy, shoes...not so much!!!
Always trying to end on a positive: I am finished my DIY chapstick labels, and have them all assembled, and am now working on the paddle fans.
Melissa, I heard the news! That sucks Hopefully things will be settled soon. And if you can't do one of your private events....don't worry about it! People are there to spend time with you and Chris, it doesn't matter if you on a sailboat, ziplining, or just sitting by the pool!
What color/style of shoes are you looking for? I will keep my eyes peeled
And let me know when your LED and batteries come in and we'll get together for dinner!
