Has anyone had this happen to them before? What did you do?
Apparently the hotel is all booked and I am not sure whether I want to be staying at a different nearby resort for that one evening. Another option is to sleep in a room with one of our guests, somehow make by for that evening, even on a couch for a few hours.
oh no...believe it or not this is quite common when booking online.
you are going to need to check with the resort to see if it is even possible to stay with your friend for the night because there are occupancy limits and some do not allow 4 adults in a room. Also, there will be extra fees incurred.
Another thing is, since you do not have a reservation until the next night, security may not even let you on the resort grounds. AI's tend to have way tighter security and they have a list of guests that are checking in that day.
Did any of your guests book via a travel agent? If they did, you can contact that agent to put your on the reservation BEFORE you get to the resort.
another option is to contact your wedding coordinator at the resort and see if there is anything they can do.
