Booking ends tonight @ midnight....

Recommended Posts

and this is the exact reason I didn't want to do the group booking. I already know how my folks are and they are not the type to do things on time...always last minute. So they get what they can get and if they are late...see ya when I get back. lol

Its so upsetting. His own sister didnt book. My bff didnt book. and we are left to pay penalties on 4 empty rooms.

my future MIL was so kind and is giving us $1500 because she didnt want us to start our marriage in debt because of our wedding *tears!*

but that bums be out too because I would rather save that gift $ and put it towards fixing the house when we buy one.

uugggghhhhhhh.

 

REMINDER: All that matters is that he and I are there! And our close families!!!

Betty -

 

Sorry to hear you weren't able to get your rooms filled up, but you're right that the only thing that truly matters is that you are both there. It's still sad that you have to waste that money though. msncry.gif

So sorry to hear that people didn't book and you had to pay the penalties for extra rooms that weren't booked. You're right though only you 2 really matter and it's very nice that she chipped in the money for you. I definitely am shying away from doing a room block.

Betty - I'm sorry to hear about your troubles with friends and family not booking. I think most of us destination brides have experienced disappointment in that way. It looks like we will just be missing each other at the resort. I'm leaving on July 17th and you'll probably be arriving soon after! I hope you have a beautiful wedding!

I don't know how much your room penalties are...but for our group, we basically had people who 'verbally commited' and if they backed out, we told them they owed up the penalty. It's not fair to us that they said they were going to come, then back out, and we get fined for it. None of them complained about having to pay the penalty fee either, at least not to our face. So maybe you could try that? It's a lot cheaper than the amount they'd end up spending to go to the wedding, and maybe they would feel the pressure to just pay more money and COME TO YOUR WEDDING!! It's a fantastic vacation, why would anyone say no?
