    I spent some time with the wonderful folsk at the front desk of the Suites and he told me they do upgrade people from time to time to the Grand.  I guess keep in mind that they will do this if its something that will benefit THEM and not necessarily.  Hotels overbook all the time and hope people cancel.  When they don't they dangle "upgrades" etc in our faces and we most of the time hop on them.  Consider your wedding day and the costs, but the idea of possibly heading to a BM's room or your parents room is a good fallback.

      Awwww.... I'm sorry!!! I'm beginning to think this resort just has TOO many weddings and is losing focus on helping each person make their wedding special. I really hope you can find a solution that makes you just as happy. If you do dancing inside everyone can always walk together outside at the end to let your wish lanterns go.... kind of like a "wedding procession." :) Hope things work out!!!

      I am getting married on a Thursday, and we wanted to have a Bonfire on the beach, with a DJ and open bar for two hours, for our after dinner reception and dance. I was told by the Beach WC, Silvia, that because my wedding is the night of the beach party for the resort, i am allowed to have a bonfire and open bar, but i am not allowed to have a DJ!!!! She said that the beach party has a DJ and open bar, on a different section of the beach, but that there can only be one DJ at a time.. sooo my wedding suffers.. :( .... We are releasing sky lanterns. so i am soo sad that we can't have a dj on the beach for our reception. so now i have NO IDEA what we are going to do. as i need a dj for the dances... 

      ugh.. i am just soo disappointed and sad. Any advise would be awesome.. cause i am just feeling lost right now.. i mean... a wedding with no dance portion for my friends and family is just not an option for me. i have a first dance.. father daughter dance.. and mother son dance.. how do you do all of this with no friggen DJ?

       

      she did say we could have a cocktail party with a DJ and open bbar etc... but then we would be inside.. and i have the sky lanterns... so i don;t know if that would work. 

       

      *sigh*.

        Agh!! Another mishap! :( My wedding is in December and I ended up with two people having to go home a day early, but I can handle that in comparison to how things are going for you! Hope you're getting things figured out and feeling better!!

        Just letting you know so you don't have the worst day of you life like I am having....

              Oohhh I love that under the table lighting!!!

              Off topic...

               

              I asked Nicole if we could add a plated salad to our entree at Calabash because I know our families are big salad eaters.  She says that the Salmon stuffed with shrimp mousse was a salad, but that we could substitute it for garden or chicken cesar if we wanted to.  I am totally confused at this point but then ask was the salmon portion large enough that it could be removed if ppl don't eat salmon.  She says...I'll send you a picture.

               

               

              With 10 days to go....all I can do is laugh.

                  I think save-on-crafts.com has them?
                  That would look gorgeous on the beach for a reception...

                      So on another note, after looking at the final details page today, I am very frustrated. I think it is ridiculous that the WCs just change things at will. I've been planning a 3:00 lobby terrace wedding all along and according to this final details page, they don't allow terrace ceremonies until after 5:00!! This was not in the wedding details that I received or I would have been planning differently all along! Seriously, it's crap! Ugh!!!! I am trying to roll with it- I emailed them to ask if there's any wavering on this since the sun sets at 5:30 in the winter and I need to do pictures afterwards. And if I have to move to the beach, it's not the worst thing ever.... but then I wouldn't have spent $200 on shoes!!!!
