My fingers are definitely crossed for you!
[QUOTE=poohshek;1000107]Wow... You definitely don't need more stress being this close to your wedding. Take any upgrades/freebies RIU offers and make the BEST out of the situation!!! Keeping my fingers crossed for you!!! :s
FI and I had a nice bottle of wine last night to relieve some of this stress. I thought the planning was coming to the end...I was so wrong!

This is instead of shutting down many of the restaurants, offering less menu options and closing facilities at the standard properties.
Typically this is a last minute decision -based upon occupancy levels ( they are waiting till the last minute hoping that levels pick up-if not they go ahead with the consolidation).
You will not get higher prices for the guests that have already booked- they will honor the rates . For those who have not yet booked- they may end up paying the going rate for the new hotel.
It never hurts to ask for additional wedding amenities- just don't be suprised if they are not huge or existant at all. many times the resorts say that they are giving an upgrade to the higher end property (which is true). Usualy the higher end resort would be a difference of 200-600 per couple as the experience tends to offer better food, beverage and amenities.
Believe me I understand how stressful it can be but the end result is you will be marrying the person you love the most in the whole world! The experience will be amazing!
