Just wondering if any past brides booked their rooms through a Flex group rate?

It's not a contact group rate that is one rate for all guests, but flexible??
We are having our wedding at Moon Palace. We are trying to figure out options for booking. We have group room block rates quoted.

Someone mentioned about instead of blocking you can do a second option called Flex booking. It's where you book at the current rate and get a discount from that. So each guest could be paying a different rate???
Bride and groom don't get free nights, but you still qualify for wedding group perks like unlimited events, bride and groom get $50 back per each room booked and resort credits.

Has anyone heard of this?

If it's going to save $ for our guests great, but I'm worried we won't qualify for group wedding benefits. We really need the free unlimited event perk.

We do these types of "groups" as well.  

 

The downside is that price and availability are not guaranteed so people may be paying way different rates or not have rooms at all.

    Unless rooms are blocked off the resort can sell out so they are not available.  it happens all the time.  You can read all over the forum with rooms NOT being available.

     

    Even when we quote rooms, we put a disclaimer that rates and availability are NOT guaranteed until room booked and deposits paid.

      thanks Tammy!  I'd rather make sure we have rooms available then everyone struggling to find a place...
