I am booked at Beaches T&C for October 26, 2013. We just booked two weeks ago. We were planning to invite around 160 people, knowing that we would probably get 50 to attend. However, I thought the group code would lock in the rate that we paid for our reservation (this was my mistake), but now the rate is rising and I haven't even sent out the Save the Dates. I know there is the option of doing a group contract, but that makes us responsible for the payment of however many rooms we contract out and collect the money from everyone, which is extremely awkward, particularly for a wedding scenario. I guess my question is how are some of you handling the planning of your group rates, when the resort won't do a normal room block like any other hotel on the planet? We've even tried to book several rooms (and pay the deposit) under my name, but the resort won't let us completely transfer the reservation from one person to another.
