We all have them, so share them. What’s your wedding vent of the week?
Mine is surrounding room blocks. We have two nice hotels in town for a reasonable price — and one of them isn’t accepting room blocks for our wedding weekend because they have a conference in town. Fine. Okay. E-mailed my FILs saying that I contacted the other nice hotel and got some pushback from my FFIL. He’s never liked this hotel because he thinks that his business competes with the business that owns the hotel. His business competes in the sense that your local steakhouse competes with Ruth Chris steakhouse. They both sell steak, but one sells steak on a much, much, MUCH larger scale that it’s not even comprable. So now he’s insiting that we put the 70 rooms we need to block out all in one smaller, crappier hotel.
Nope. Nope. Nope. For many people (200 of our guests are out of towners) this will be the first and only time that they get to see my city. I’m not going to have it be in some crappy hotel. Hopefully they don’t go behind my back on this one.
