- Wedding: February 2012
I am seriously going friggin mental here! We’re getting married in 37 days. I should be worrying about spots, about the weather, about some ridicilous freak accident that will ruin my dress, about the photographer, about the flowers, about vendors cancelling, about illnesses… you get the picture
But what do I have to stress about? FRIGGIN FAMILY HOTEL ROOMS!!!
I said from the very begining I didn’want to get involved in booking the hotel rooms, but was more than happy to offer advice and get special rates.
So what happened? My mother decided to play thesaviour of everybody and take charge of the hotel reservations. What happened after that? Well because it’s not so much fun dealing with reservations as it is reading up about the spa facilities and special facilities it has been dumped on my doorstep.
I knew this would happen!!!! I FECKING KNEW IT!!!
So anyway I made an information sheet with rates and contact details and Mum started sending me the reservations for the hotel although I had repeatedly said it was a better idea they do directly with the hotel because I do not want this extra stress… but oh no – I was being selfish!
She never gave the information sheets to anyone. She was also supposed to collect the deposits – she hasn’t. So I called the hotel and begged for an extension which they gave me for tomorrow. And this morning? She tells me she STILL doesn’t have the majority of it. On top of that she gave everybody the same rate regardless of if they booked a Double or a Triple and regardless of what I had written down. Half the rooms she doesn’t even know when theýre coming
I don’t have the money to cover this, and neither does my FH (See my thread). And on top of that i am trying my best to sort it out now and Mum is sulking and not talking to me.
If you ever have the bright idea of organizing accomodation for your family and friends – my advice is DO NOT BOTHER!
