Room blocks

This morning my wake up call was one of my best friends calling to tell me that she tried to book a room in the hotel adjacent to our hall and there are no rooms left for our weekend! I was never comfortable with the fact that the adjacent hotel was owned separately and refused to allow any room blocks, and this is why. I really freaked out when I heard there were no rooms available and started thinking about changing our wedding date. Then I ran to the computer and checked the order for the save the dates. It was already processed and couldn’t be canceled.

What to do? We started looking at accommodations in the surrounding areas and found many options. At first I really liked the idea of everything being all in one place (the hotel, the rehearsal, the salon, ceremony and reception). In the end, I’m actually really happy that this happened! We can still have the rest of it at Atlantica, but I found a hotel that has a B&B feel to it but has 67 rooms so everyone can all stay in one place. It also has a bar and a pool. It’s only 4 miles away. It looks beautiful and it even has a bridal suite. I think everyone is going to be much happier in the end. So I blocked plenty of rooms to be sure we can all stay in one place and have our weekend getaway!
