- Wedding: August 2014
This is a huge load off of my shoulders. Here’s the background: we met at a convention and six years later we’re getting married on our anniversary, our honeymoon is largely going to consist of going to the same convention which this year is being held in London, an awesome place we both love. Originally the rooms for the convention were supposed to go on sale in Feb., but then they moved up the date and they went on sale New Year’s. MASSIVE PANIC!
All the hotels available (it’s not in Central London so there are limited options) required full payment at time of booking, YIKES! I thought all hope was lost since we are still saving up the money. Last night when I checked the status of the hotels the only one still listed as having rooms was a budget hotel where most of the reviews concerned people getting bed bugs and having stains on their sheets. Not exactly what I’d had in mind.
So last night I had nightmares of sleeping with bed bugs crawiling all over us and the other awful things that my imagination could dream up.
GREAT NEWS! Tonight I checked and a really great and nice hotel just opened up a block of rooms, and since they are part of an international chain they allow you to make reservations by holding them with your card and pay the full balance when you arrive.
YEAH! No bed bugs! And a great hotel for our honeymoon! Truely the honeymoon gods are smiling on us in 2014!
