The resorts are quite flexible so if you had to change you time at the resort (provided you are having your ceremony there) they are usually really accomodating. Are you trying to book a date for next year? And have you started booking anything or sent out any invites?
Whatever you do don't panic. Our wedding plans fell apart when La Barcaza changed ownership and messed us over for the $1200 deposit that we made. So in January, with only 6 months left to replan our entire wedding, we managed to do it And the worst part was that all of our guests (60 of them) were already booked and paid, our invites were long gone, and I had no wedding venue! In the end our wedding date changed but no one really cares once they have booked.
Just email her again and wait it out
I know everyone isn't going to be there as long as we will be so that's why I definitely want to get these dates locked down. The day after is already gone and the day before may leave out a number of guests that might not be able to get away but in the end, i'll do whatever needs to be done. Yes, next year is the timeframe and I have reached out to the hotel, and also have a TA that's also checking into the rates so as soon as I have that information locked down I will feel much better. No save the dates have gone out yet because I'd like to have my dates set before I do.
You're so right, there's definitely no need to panic because it could be worse. I'm so sorry to hear about what happened to you with La Barcaza. I had thought about that, but it doesn't meet all the needs I have so that's why I didn't do further research into it. I'm happy to hear though that that you were able to change your venue and plans and everything is still moving forward for you and your guests. That's great!
I did email again yesterday , but when I saw that someone else was able to call and have success, that's why I thought it might be a good idea to just make a quick call and hope for the best. I am sure it will happened soon!
