They had messed up my spa appointment. My TA had Ana set up a makeup appointment for the day of my wedding and when I got there, they didn't have it scheduled and their stylist wouldn't be there till 3. My cousin (who is great at negotiating) went to the front desk and told them this had upset me because I hadn't packed wedding day makeup (which I really hadn't) so they said they would make up for it by giving us a reservation at the resturant for my reception. Well, when it came time to go to the reservation and the resturant said they didn't have it, my cousin went off and that is how we got the wine room. We were just going to go to the mexican resturant because the hostess there was so nice and pulled tables together for us and told us we could order from any other menu and they would get it for us...but then my cousin came back saying we had the wine cellar so we moved. Looking back on it, I wish we would have just stayed at the Mexican resturant because they were so nice and willing to please but it all worked out. They say they don't take reservations and even if you got one, I wouldn't rely on it. After your pics or the ceremony, just have someone from your group go to the resturant of your choice and tell them how many guest you will have. Himitsu is a little more stuck up because I guess it is resturant of choice, but we had so much better service at the Seaside Grill and mexican resturant. They really like to please! All my guest loved the Seaside Grill the best so maybe they can set something up for you? Really, don't stress about it. Once you are there, everything will fall into place.

Tons! and everytime i get a response saying "ok, great" So i start to think she's got it documented somewhere and will take care of it. We have a small group too, 10 people and she did say you cant have a private reception with this small of a group, and also they dont take reservations anywhere, so im worried about us wandering off after the ceremony trying to find a place to have our family dinner together and we might have to wait like 5 hours, or we wont be able to be seated all at the same table! thats not at all how i imagine it going, its an intimate group for a reason, so of course i'd like us to all be sitting together for dinner! Im so worried about this, but it sounds like they all worked it out for your group. Im just curious how your family made a reservation in the first place if they dont take reservations? Anyways, glad it worked out for you- can't wait to check out your pics.
