Has this happened to any other brides? What's been yoru experience - do you think rooms be released at later date or are we S.O.L.?
We sent out our save the dates this past April, thank god, becuase the only people now that are able to go to our wedding are the ones that book with in a month of us sending out the STDs. I'm a little stressed because I know there were quite a few people that wanted to go but were waiting until Nov-Dec to book seen as thats still 4+ months away....aaahh! Who knew it would sell out so fast?

My MOH was booking in early October and we had a stop sell as well. Luckily for us, there was still airspace on our flight so we had to put her in our room for the week. My TA has a note in to Sunquest that if a room comes available to book her into her own room.
The others guests were from Calgary so they chose a different tour operator than Sunquest and managed to get a room and booked on our flight as well.
Get your TA to look at a bunch of other tour operators to see if any of them have rooms available. If your guests want to go back enough, they will consider this option (even if the flights are different).

I had emailed my TA asking if we were running out of space so that I could tell people I knew wanted to come to hurry up and book. She didn't get back to me and then last week we found out they had put a stop sale on.
The TA said that they can't know that information ahead of time, the hotel or carrier will just do it without any warning (there are still seats available on the plane from Calgary just no hotel rooms).
Just wondering if anyone knows if this is true or are they just saying that to cover for themselves? Any TA's reading this - can you find out if the packages are being booked up?
Thanks everyone, I really appreciate the respones!

I actually meant to ask if its possible for a travel agent to find that information out about a resort not specifically about RTB for me...because I assumed they were sold out! So sorry if you went to any trouble to look that info up
But thanks again - thats really good news to hear!

This also just happened to us. All packages out of Halifax, NS were sold out. Two of our guests had to fly to Montreal and TO to fly to Jamaica. I could not believe it sold out so quickly. It is unfortunate because we did have a couple of others who were thinking of going but probably won't pay extra to fly out of another province. We did book back this summer though so most of our friends and family have already booked.

I think we've got it all figured out now though. Any new guest wanting to book are flying out of Toronto...with Signature. We're with Sunquest out of Calgary but Signature was still booking packages.
We've got 25 guests plus us booked right now. There were a few people who would be going if they could fly out of Calgary but I don't expect them to fly to TO first. At this point I don't expect any more guests unless they release some rooms at the last minute.
Anyways I'm done stressing about it now. The "need to be there" people are booked. I can return to spending hours researching hair, jewellery, gifts, flowers...all that fun stuff!
