Please take a minute to read this and tell me your thoughts...Im running out of time.
I chose a DW for fun and ease. I have been to PDC yearly for a decade now. I absolutely love the 5th ave area and want my gueststo have other hotel options if the cost is a bit too much..
After hours online pouring over their wedding website It seems the Royal PDC has it down to a wedding science without being too assembly line. BUT
I have just come acrossed a big problem (to me). After talking with the off site WC , she's located in Cancun, (not very friendly and doesnt communicate promptly) I have found out that the entire beach and all the ballrooms are "blocked off" or "not available". This is after I have paid my deposit. So I can have my gazebo wedding (covered) a gazebo terrace cocktail reception and a central courtyard "private" reception. That all sounds really good..... right.... but she had to point out to me that leaves NO bad weather contigencies on my Dec 7th date. NOWHERE to go insde for a reception. The only inside reception option is a semi private dinner in a restaurant that will not allow more than 30 ppl. We will prob have more than 30. I am so stressed. They have offered to refund my deposit or book a different day. Of course I have already informed all of my friends and family of date. WC is suggesting Dec14 saying that every venue option is open to book on that day. The funny thing here is that when you go to the The Royals wedding website you are able to see that both beach locations are still available for a ceremony. I said I can understand if there are other weddings or they are wanting to save spots for other would be brides...She assured me there are no other weddings that day. So HOW can all the beach locs (2) and ballrooms be blocked off? private events? if so are they large corporate events that tend to have lound, drunk and onoxious attendees celebrating their sales award. I have been to those myself...
BOTTOM line. Do I look for another Hotel? Or do I pick a date so close to the Christmas holiday and change it all. Im running out of time....
Please lend me your thoughts. THank you!!
