Just informed: Flight AND hotel rooms sold out!

Recommended Posts

OK, so I've decided not to worry...just pray :)

 

However, I have just been informed by our travel agent that our flight and hotel are sold out....6 months, 3 weeks and 2 days BEFORE my wedding.

 

The majority of my guests have not booked yet...and were just about to do so.

 

So after she assures me that this is an anomaly, at the end of the day, there is no other plane on that day scheduled... yet. So they cannot book. But the airline may see that they have a high demand and provide another plane. It has to be with the same tour operator/ airline because they are the exclusive providers of our resort.

 

So I am holding out for another plane.

 

But this begs a different question: now that my hotel has no more hotel rooms available, my guests may(if they make it) have to stay at other properties. Would you cover their day pass costs? They may have no other choice but to stay elsewhere....so it is not their personal choice. If so, this cost is going to be substantial.

 

FIL says they waited too long...and that is not our fault.

 

What do you think?

Oh, my goodness!!!!! I'm so sorry to hear that. How stressful, I would have gone wild on my TA, the airline AND the resort if that happen to me.

 

None of my guests (even my parents) booked more that 3 months in advance, my sister booked 2 weeks before the trip.....If it were me I would try to pay for my guests day passes, I think its a nice gesture, and maybe forgo OOT bags?

Oh No! What resort are you having your wedding at? We still have A LOT of guests who have not booked. How many more guests do you expect to book? Can your TA work with the hotel to see when other guests might be checking out so then your guests can check in maybe your guests just come down a day later or something. Good luck!!

I wouldn't be paying for the day pass I agree with your FI - they should have done it sooner! Take a deep breath i'm sure it will be fine

 

I'm the opposite i'm praying that they are full!! lol

Oh crappy!!! That sucks!! If all else fails could you move resorts?? I know you probably have your heart set on that particular location (since you picked it in the first place!). But if there are not other options & you're wanting those guests to attend you might look at switching...as you know there are a lot of great places out there!

Hope everything works out!!! Good Luck!

So sorry to hear the news. If you have not sent out STD, invites, etc, as mentioned before can you switch to another hotel. You still have a sufficient amount of time so work with your TA and see what can be done. I wish you well.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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.
