- Wedding: June 2010
I have told numerous people that my wedding is going to be June 19 2010 because we have tentatively reserved a resort in Colorado springs for our reception site..it is a nice hotel definitely 4 star at least and we knew it would be costly but never did I imagine what was going to happen
In negotiating contracts, room rates, we were told that the rooms were going to be 430 dollars a night. No joke. I dont know anyone ever who has payed that much for a hotel room. I looked on the website and this is above what the standard rate is.. When we initially looked online rates were 125 per person. I know various people including my parents who have stayed here and not payed more than mid 100s for a room.
So now I am scrambling to find another site that has the same appeal on the same date since several people have already blocked this off their calender and asked for the time off from work/residency.
So I bought my dress/bridesmaids dresses all with this venue in mind..all b/c we had tentatively reserved this site, never imagining they would come with this bull (*&#. I have the distinct idea they dont want us there..by the way we are having a 250 person wedding..
I have already had an argument with my fiance once about changing the date ( it was changed once before b/c my parents yielded to me on having an outdoor ceremony instead of church/club venue that they chose.. so now that I have told everyone another date…It may change again..I’m so pissed and worried that people are going to be mad at me if the date has to change again..My whole idea of my perfect wedding is ruined!
