So, I need to vent today a bit.
We booked our wedding and opted for just the standard rooms, which is saving us a lot of money. Anyways, we have some guests (close friends actually) coming to our wedding, and they have opted for the higher category rooms. Now, they keep asking us why we are just going to the regular rooms, it's our wedding blah blah blah... anyways, I was talking with my bf and the moh who is just booking, and they were at our TAs and asked if we (the bride and groom) will get an upgrade. TA said; depends on availablity etc (which is something we are aware of and if we arrive, I'm sure if the rooms are available, we will get it). Then she said her FI will make sure we get the upgrade. Now my FI's bf did/said the same thing.
All of this making me feel so small. We travel quite often with my FI for vacation, and we don't require the Ritz all the time. This is why we can afford to vacation 2 times a year. I know it is our wedding - but this is what we have chosen. Most of our guests are in the standard room, this is what we booked - why can't people just leave it at that. AND if they do want to be nice and ask/argue the upgrade for us, keep it to yourselves and make it a surprise. We don't want to spend the additional 300/person to have a sitting area. We rather use that towards our actual honeymoon a couple months later. Why can't people just leave it at that?
