    Hey Ladies,

    This is my first post, but I've been lurking around and getting ideas for a while.  I'm having a bit of a crisis right now.  We have a TA who has been getting everyone booked, and we're four nights away from getting 75 nights, which means we get our week free with unlimited events.  Well, we were waiting for my fiance's friend to book and we just found out that when he went to our website, I guess the link went down the other day, so he just booked five nights through Priceline.  He just told my fiance about an hour ago, and now I can't sleep.  Can our travel agent get him added to our group or are we SOL.  Thanks for any help!

      wow thats a tough question.  Phone your TA she should be able to let you know if that can be done or not.

        Ugh I can't help but I am in pretty much the exact same situation so I know how you feel! People just don't realize how crucial it is that they book with your group!!! I've been so anxious and losing a lot of sleep myself these last few days, trying to sort things out before our group booking closes at the end of this week. Is there any way your friend could get a refund through Priceline and rebook with your TA? Even if you had to pay a cancellation fee it sounds like it might be worth it for you!

         

        Good luck, sorry to hear you are going through this - so frustrating and stressful

          I feel you.  We just found out yesterday that the resort won't count him.  My fiance is talking to him today during football games about canceling and booking with the TA.  He thinks he can convince him easily enough if they've been drinking and OU wins.

            As frustrating as it is, you can't expect everyone to book with your TA...especially if they can get a better deal elsewhere! I had people book with & without my TA...and I came VERY close to losing our free trip (that we gave to DHs sis because she couldn't afford to go!) But honestly, what seems like such a big deal will not be after the fact....when all is said & done, you will just be so happy that they could make it you will not be so concerned with missing out on that free week. I'm sure you didn't budget for that free week, so really you are not out money. As much as it would be nice to get the free stuff...in the end it's having people there who care about you that is really important. I hope you don't lose too much sleep over this - and maybe you will be lucky enough that someone else will come along & book so that you do get that free week. But if not, you will still be a beautiful bride marrying the man of your dreams!!!

              I am going through the same thing right now. People do not know how to follow directions. So annoying but reality. I hope I get the 75 rooms but if not, I'll just pay for the reception and we won't do any other events.

                if he doesn't book through your ta can you just pay for the 4 room?  seems like that would be cheaper if you get you're week free plus lots of extras!
