- Did you do a group booking with all your guests or just give them the hotel details and have them book themselves? I'm thinking it might be too stressful trying to arrange everybody onto one booking regardless of how good the group discount might be.
- Are you buying your Grooms a present and if so what?
Thanks i know there are defo problems with the language barrier. I dont know how they missed it being us but i'm glad it's sorted now and the WC and the TA have the same couple on the same day and time. I have it in black and white to prove it ha ha.. i am printing those kinds of emails and taking them with me as a back up.. lol....
As for booking the package...hhhmmm I really think it depends on who you book with and which hotel. This is my personal opinion. My WC at the hotel takes FOREVER to get back to me so we decided to book with the TA. Having said that. I did contact the WC at the hotel direct and reserve our date and time. I wanted some kind of contact with them, i didn't want it all left to the TA. (i trust no-one, lol).. if the hotel had better communication i prob would have booked direct.. sorry not much help am i..
We booked our holiday through Caribbean Warehouse and they got us all the best rates and then the girl looking after us took care of everyone that booked. She either phoned them or they phoned her. She then just grouped us all together to be part of the wedding party. But everyone is in charge of their own holiday and fiances. Which i prefer. I have enough to get on with without collecting and accounting for everyones money.
Yes i am buying FI a pressie but dont know what yet...
Herbie - yes i am doing OOT bags. So far i have antibactirial gel, small packet of wipes, some insect cream, scholl party feet gel plaster spots and some resolve tabs... for the morning after the night before, ha ha.. i also wanted personalised playing cards and lipgloss but they are proving a bit dearer than i expected so the hunt goes on..... i am collecting things as i go and see them.. are you doing them?
