      This is what I have received from Tiara this morning:


      "Even if you will have a renewal of vows ceremony, you will have to be here at least 3 business days in advance.

      Date change confirmed to Wednesday.

      Best regards,

          I think this is something that you can negotiate with the WC...just give some extenuating circumstance or something. Honestly, if you ended up showing up with only 2 days ahead, say due to a flight delay, they cannot cancel your wedding; that is just retarded business management. They just want to give themselves the extra time to prepare for your wedding. If you want to show up at the resort sooner, just let the WC know and tell her why you need it to be otherwise.

            Yup. You're telling me. She asked me to make arrangements to arrive on the Friday instead of the Saturday that we are already booked for. Otherwise it was being changed to Wednesday, so I had no choice. But maybe she'll make an exception for you? Hopefully it all works out for you. Good luck. Keep me posted.

              Understood but if she's telling me 8 months in advance that it's not possible and asking me to make changes to my arrangements, then can I really just show up whenever and say it was a flight delay? Especially when she has our group booking so she already knows when to expect us? Just sucks and is an inconvenience.

                If you have a TA or wedding planner, ask (s)he to negotiate with the WC. My feeling is that they can make the exception if you give them a compelling enough reason. Unless you are having some complexed wedding arrangments where the extra time is needed, I am sure it is accomodatable.

                  Unfortunately, my TA doesn't specialize in DWs (my first mistake..but the quote was excellent!) and I don't have a wedding planner. Either way, I'm just about over it now, it's just the hassle of letting my guests know. And I don't know why it was an issue anyway. I'm not having a big spectacular wedding. I've told her it'll be about 20 and nothing customized or private. No dance floor or music even! At least not at the moment.

                    Well I put down a deposit for a wedding date of May 7, 2010 ... thanks for the heads up on the Cinco De Mayo celebrations. They do have organized festivities on May 5 for it, so I have decided to go with the 7th.

                    I am just curious how long it has taken for people to get their written conformation from the WC?

                    Thanks!

                      Hey no worries thought it might be a little intrusive... Guess we will be there at the same time. We havent got ours yet and the payment just went on our credit card last week even though we put the depoist down almost a month ago.
