    so they are telling other guests to book elsewhere too? i think you and your fi should talk to them about how great it would be if they stayed at the Rui so they can enjoy all the wedding activities and let them know that the rui has rules that people must stay there in order to have a wedding there.

      I've had that 2 I blew my stack lol mostly because we had picked the hotel based on kids and they were the only buggers bringing the kids!! They still haven't booked and its supposed to be FI's best man. He is devastated but won't say anything - however if I get hold of him i'll rip him a new one lol

        I am so sorry you are going through all that drama.

        Being that it's your FIL that are making the most fuss about the resort does suck. Since it's their son getting married they should be more willing to do whatever necessary to have the day go as smooth as possible.

        In my opinion, I think the resort industry is the biggest one to blame here. I think the 80% or 90% of "guest must stay policy" that many of the resorts implement is very unreasonable. It really sucks to put brides in a position where they are basically begging their guests to stay at the same resort as the wedding. What makes it even more difficult is when you have to force people to stay at the same resort for the same number of nights. People like to have flexibility especially b/c you can not control the reasons why people may not be able to stay the required nights.

        I also understand that it would be so much more fun to have everyone at the same resort this way you can do activities together, but some people like to have a little more privacy, especially since after all, they will be on vacation too. To other guests it's a money issue. Some guests will look for the most affordable travel. Going to a destination wedding can be expensive and when people pay that much money for something I think they also expect options.

They were saying that the prices were too high and that they could find a better deal elsewhere. But you know what I have learned to do? I say #$%& them!!! IT helps me alot!!!! I only focus on me and my FI and whoever is going to be there will be there. It is not a bout them. It is about you guys!
          I LOVE your attitude!! I wish I could let things roll off my back easier! I'm learning though.

            We have but they are so cheap! And it's causing us to fight about the situation which is really pissing me off!! But I sent an email to the future in-laws and 'set the record straight'. FI wasn't too happy about it but I think it will help things in the long run. Ahhh--- gotta love 'em! URGH......
