I saw an earlier post where the bee had instructed her Fiance to organize the hotel rooms and he somehow flunked it and now they don’t have a room for themselves on the wedding night.
Well, my Fiance reserved the hotel block a while ago and to this day, we don’t know:
1. how much they charge us per room
2. whether we have a bridal suite
3. if there will be a shuttle bus to the church and venue
I made a to-do list for Fiance yesterday and this was part of it. Did he talk to the hotel? Yes. Do we have answers to those questions? No.
He said they “would call him back”. That’s what they told him last time and never did. He didn’t think of calling THEM back or driving by the hotel. But at least he acknowledged that they “kinda suck”.
Last Saturday, I wanted to drive by there and talk to them in person, but he said the person who could tell us does not work on weekends. What? It’s a hotel! They don’t close on weekends. There is only one person there who does reservations? What if someone spontaneously wants to check in on a Sunday? I will call them in a little while and tell them if we can’t tell our guests what the hotel price will be, we will just have to go with a different hotel.
Did anybody else leave their Fiance in charge of the hotel block? Was your experience better than mine?

Hurray! After I posted, I checked my cell phone and he had called me to let me know he was successful today! All set. Phew!

He is likely correct that the person who does block bookings works Monday to Friday.
The front desk staff may not have access to that information.

@julies1949: Maybe, but he called them twice on a weekday. And aparently, that person wasn’t availalble then either. And neither later on to call him back with the info…

I swear men can’t get anything done. I’ve given my Fiance a few things to do and he has done them, but with much questioning from me. If it were up to him, he’d wait until the day before the wedding to get anything done. Like all he needs to do is show up and everything will just “happen.” IT HAPPENS CAUSE I MAKE SURE IT WILL HAPPEN!!! lol. Men. I love him, but boy do I want to strangle him sometimes! 😉

@BackyardLoveBird: lol Anything that has to be organized will be done by me. If Mr. T did it, people would show up and have nowhere to sit. SMH

lol, this is funny, guys will be guys. In his defense…the person that does the blocked rooms for our hotel is not there on the weekends. ; )

Actually the “salesperson” I had to deal with at the Hilton only worked Monday – Friday and NEVER called me back… I had to call a million times… it was crazy-annoying. :/

My FH keeps not doing the tasks I ask him to do either.. I give him stuff that isn’t very detailed because he’s a big picture guy, but then I ask him if he did it yet and he says “Calm down, I’ll get to it”. When?? It ends up another item on my to-do list because I want it done and out of the way. You can only put things off for so long.. the wedding is 8 months away. At some point, everything has to be figured out. So I stopped giving him tasks to get the point across and he asked why I stopped including him and I said because he was acting like he didn’t want to be included and he just wanted the stuff to get done, so I was doing it! We don’t have a wedding planner and I’m a full-time student graduating in 5 weeks, so I’m working at about 500% right now. He works full time 9-5 M-F, so I understand it’s hard for him to make calls during business hours, but I feel like I’m at a lose-lose with this- if I give him stuff, it doesn’t get done and if I don’t give him stuff, he feels left out. I know he’s more excited to just be married already than about the actual wedding, but the wedding is every girls’ dream day! So I’m trying to be understanding of the fact that he doesn’t have that “wedding day” vision like I do. Oh well, it is what it is. FH is great in so many other ways- I can make up for his lack of organizational skills 🙂

@BackyardLoveBird: That is my wedding mantra– It’s going to happen that way because I’m going to make sure it’s going to happen that way! Too funny!
