I spoke with my TA today and had a few questions. I think she gave me good news? I sure hope so.
For some background info, when we booked the hotel, I thought the basic ceremony package was free. After booking I realized it was free only for US brides, so we needed to pay $950. Then, when we booked, they had a promo going on where depending on the amount of rooms booked with your group you could get free private events (anywhere from a free cocktail hour to unlimited events). A few weeks after we booked, I go into their website and read that the promo was only for US couples again. I thought maybe I hadn't read all the small print but I was sure I had. I took a screen shot but then thought that maybe I missed something?
So anyway, today I spoke with my TA. She told me that I'll have my make up and hair for free so yay! and then told me that I should have the free dinner, part of the free private events promo. She actually has a copy of the promo where it says Canadian and US brides. I guess I wasn't going crazy after all! She told me to send them an e-mail and if they say no, she has proof that based on our booking date we should have that for free.
She also told me to fight to have the $950 waived for the ceremony since we're upgrading our venue for the ceremony and reception. We'll see what happens with that but I'm hoping for the best.
If all this actually goes through, it means huge savings for us which would be amazing (we have a house to furnish ). Even if not all of it works out, and we get only the spa package and the free dinner, I'm happy. It's still going to be awesome and I'm already saving quite a bit of money on my hair, makeup and respective trials. I'm just really happy about hearing this and I needed to share with someone
